Well the day has finally arrived. Tonight is one of the largest Muay Thai events in the US to date, Lion Fight 11. Every fight that Lion Fight Promotions puts on seems to draw bigger audiences and more world class fighters.
What makes this fight even more special is that 2 of the professional fighters who are on tonight’s card reached out to Muay Thai Addict and asked us to sponsor them and to make their custom Muay Thai shorts for their fight.
Moe Travis Fight Skirt for Lion Fight 11 pre debut
Making her professional Muay Thai debut out of Knuckle Up Fitness in Atlanta, is Moe “The Giant” Travis. Moe will be wearing a completely custom Muay Thai skirt that she asked us to make for her. If you have never seen Moe, don’t let the fact that she’s only 4’11 and 108 pounds fool you. She is a world champion amateur Muay Thai fighter who has racked up an impressive 14-0 record.
We first noticed Moe at the 2011 IKF World Classic. Without knowing a thing about her, we predicted she would win the tournament, and she did. We just had to learn more about her and hunted her down for an interview. Since then, Moe has been one of our biggest supporters and we have supported her, not only as a fighter but as a friend as well. We just love how she is so down to earth, a hard worker, and really cares about helping others learn martial arts and get in shape. As a matter of fact, before she trained and taught martial arts, at one point in time she weighed 180 pounds after having her daughter. She was sick of carrying the extra weight and did something about it. Her self discipline and persistence of where she was back then and where she is now speak for itself.
Moe "The Giant" Travis
The Muay Thai skirt that Moe asked us to design is made out of high quality satin blend materials. It is black and pink with silver lining on the panels and stars on each side. The front of the shorts have Moe’s signature “The Giant” logo.
Jose "El Matador" Palacios custom blue shorts
And from the west coast, we are looking forward to watching Jose “El Matador” Palacios, fighting out of Unlimited MMA in California. Jose is no stranger to professional Muay Thai, currently holding a 5 – 2 record. It has been such a pleasure working with the the Unlimited MMA team and especially the head trainer Rudi Ott. Rudi is a former world champion fighter himself and now focuses on producing some of the best fighters in the business. He has been such a great person to work with and we appreciate the opportunity to be involved with his gym and fighters.
Jose "El Matador" Palacios red Muay Thai shorts
We are not sure which of the two custom shorts Jose will be wearing but we made them in red and blue. The front has his signature logo, a bull and matador, and on the sides are the logo for Unlimited MMA.
