    Some raw, short portraits of Lethwei competitors (circa early 2000). It was a period of little outside coverage of the sport.

    Hey guys. I lurk on here a lot, but I decided to post a video here too. This is an interview that I did with Lethwei legend Dave Leduc more than a month ago. I finally had time to release this on YouTube. Leduc is fighting Cyrus Washington tomorrow in Wyoming (yes! US soil).


    I think one of the most interesting thing about Leduc is how much of a thinker he is. We often like to typecast fighters a certain way, but it seems like the best fighters always have a cerebral side.123
