If you thought Street MMA was bad, watch these high-security prison muay-thai fights from Thailand

As my cat sits on my lap, and I stick my hand into a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, I can say confidently that I enjoy this and I don’t want this to end. Which is why I would never want to go to prison. I would miss all the luxuries of the free world, but most of all, I’ll miss my cat Tardy laying on me and purring. Tardy does this weird thing, where if I’m not petting her, she’ll walk back and forth in front of me and then just all over, she’ll then pick her head up and stare at me. I’m not sure what her thought process behind this is, but it always gets me to pet her, so it does work, I’ll give her that.

In Thailand they are doing something interesting in Klong Prem Central Prison located in Bangkok. They are taking prisoners and teaching them boxing and muay thai. They bring foreigners in and put on fights in the prison, this started in January of this year. In some cases the fighters can reduce their sentences, it doesn’t get into much detail about how that works, but it’s interesting nonetheless. Props to Joe Fultano for the find.

Gary LaPlante

Gary LaPlante cares about a hand full of things, his best friend/his cat Tardy, stage diving and tending to the need of all the pretty ladies that frequent his front door. With Gary’s free time he slam dances, eats a horrible food that would kill any man that had a glass stomach and being a huge nerd. If you’d like to join Gary is going front to back, side to side in the pit or if you’d just like to exchange pictures of cats, please contact him.
