About mlucas

Born to a working class family in rural New York I grew up working like a dog and drinking Natural light in the woods. After a brief stint attempting to escape the poverty of employment via university I gave up on escaping the grind and moved to sunny California where the burritos are as generous as the weather. I work in the service industry slinging booze and food. I got into Muay Thai as a recreational activity. I saw an interclub fight and decided to try it out, everyone has to test their mettle somehow. A few fights and a year later I was in Thailand training, and fighting. I haven’t quit stepping into the ring since. I currently live in West Oakland and balance my time blocking punches with my head with attempting to prevent brain deterioration through writing, studying Thai; language, culture and history, and going to wild dance parties with my friends.

  1. i like the banter of malaipets opponents cornermen in between matches as he was getting his ass whooped, “youre standing there like a muay thai fighter, we dont do that.” [with mike mannanquil standing there too..] then he gets KO’ed via kicking malaipets stone shins.

  2. ross made kiatkowski look like a handicapped 5 year old kid. it was almost offending to see how bad he was. whole time i just kept thinking this is such a sweep its a waste of everyones time, including kevins.

    • I don’t like taking anything away from anyone, and Chris deserves his due respect, but it was definitely super one sided. But Chris is scrappy as hell and can eat some mean hits. Probably the right choice for Kevin as his first fight after a big surgery
