Fabio Pinca Interview


I was pleasantly surprised when I bumped into Fabio at Thai Fight.  I had expected to see him here, then again I didn’t realise the Fight card consisted of Thailand vs. Team Nasser.  The interview was a bit rushed as he was leaving to take his fighters to the venue.  I knew if I didn’t grab him that moment, it wasn’t going to happen.  Fabio is a nak muay who’ve i’ve been wanting to meet for a while, he’s a technical fighter and I really do consider him easily one of the best nak muay running around.

I think he stunned a lot of people when he beat Petchmongkol for the Thai Fight belt.  I think a lot of the Thai sponsors were scratching their heads that night.  I think someone forgot to send Fabio the memo about how Thai Fight is supposed to go down.  He’s got his hands full this month… he’ll be facing of with Saiyok in Thai Fight Lyon.  Should be really interesting, really looking forward to it.

I started My Muay Thai back in 2006... I was tired of reading about MMA, and wanted somewhere I could watch real muay thai fights, be inspired and connect with others who love muay thai as much as I do... I currently live in London... when I'm not geeking out over muay thai you can find me bombing around London on my scrambler, ferreting out the latest street food gems.


  1. Wow. less douchey than i expected, actually not douchey at all. Seems like a really nice guy actually. Maybe he’s just one of those hyper competitive heat of the moment asshole guys. How was he outside the interview Nop? Pretty laid back?

    For the record Fabio is one of my favorite non-thai fighters, pure skill. Just didn’t like his little outbursts during matches.

  2. I didn’t really get to hang out with him, but he seem to be a soft spoken, wasn’t arrogant. Just a normal dude… tell you what though, he can cut weight, because he’s pretty big. I’m about 160 (ish) ok, 165 and he was bigger then me.

  3. exactly the demeanor I expected. Fabio may be competitive but he always has a calm ring presence. I like his style. I thought the same thing about his weight cutting because his face is chubbier, almost didnt recognize him lol
