Brian Ebersole at Tiger Muay Thai will always be our guy, but when it comes to learning MMA on the coast of Thailand, Phuket Top Team is the place to go. If it were possible for MiddleEasy to have some sort of partnership with them we would. However at the moment we just sort of dig admiring them from a distance — in our comfortable office chairs in Hollywood, California. If you feel like throwing an infinite number of high kicks while sweating profusely in the ring, that’s your prerogative. For $77 a week, those guys give you a week’s worth of on-site accommodation so that you can live, breathe, and possibly vomit MMA if you over-exert yourself. If you play your cards right you can even train with Anthony Leone, who will be fighting against Frank Bacca in the bantamweight semi-finals tonight on Bellator 97.
To get in the semis, Anthony defeated the former Bellator bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky, a fight that no one pegged him winning. Although his bout will be on the un-televised portion of the card, you can still watch the entire thing live on MiddleEasy starting at 4pm PST / 7pm EST. Now check out this superbly constructed micro-doc of Anthony Leone’s progression in the Bellator bantamweight tournament.
