Event Videos and Bouts
Journey is an exciting, new promotion in Canada seeking to bring the best Muay Thai athletes together in the most even match-ups possible. In 2011, Journey Fight Series will be hosting an 8-man Professional Full Muay Thai rules tournament (140lbs max) over the course of three events with prize money totaling $20,000! We are currently seeking the brightest and best young Muay Thai athletes in North America to compete.
After starting with 8 of the top 140lb professional Muay Thai fighters in North America, the field has been narrowed to two! In an all Canadian final, Toronto's Matt Embree takes on Josh Palmer of Halifax. Both fighters have been very active in 2010 and are looking to get their hands on the $10 000 winner's fight purse! As an extra incentive the bout will be for the vacant WMC North American Title, the first ever North American WMC belt awarded!
This event will also feature hometown athlete "Nasty" Nate Smandych against Mark Deluca. These accomplished athletes battled once before as amateurs with Smandych winning. Deluca looks to even the score as a professional!
Regular Fight of the Night winner Jessica "Thumper" Gladstone steps into the ring bringing her nonstop action packed style to the fans. "Shotgun" Sean McKinnon and Billy "Kung Fu Panda" Kim round out 5 professional bouts! A full undercard of local amateurs will complete the card as Calgary's Chris McMillan continues to climb the rankings and attempts to avenge a loss to Edmonton's hard hitting Jamie Gifford!
