I am not exactly sure where to venture with this post. After all, Udon Thani has been the scene of various types of conflicts, including military actions, political unrest (Red Shirts and Yellow Shirts), cock fights, and drunken brawls.
There is also the long-running confrontation of villagers and country people opposed to the potash mining that is being pursued by the likes of foreign giants such as the Asia Pacific Potash Corporation (APPC) — mining that the people rightly see as destructive to the environment and their way of life.
Sometimes there are more organized fights, as in Muay Thai or even mainstream boxing — a WBC flyweight belt changed hands in Udon Thani a dozen years ago.
Since the title of this post leaves no reason to expect anything more than the sporting competition variety of fight, I am going to seize upon that and simply post a few of the many Muay Thai videos that can be found on YouTube.

The first fight for me, but also the first fight for the Lu Kao Niow (Means “Son of Sticky Rice”) Gym here in Udon Thani.
I was awarded a trophy for “fighter with the strongest heart” at the end of the night.
Many thanks to my Muay Thai teacher, arjarn Sen for getting me this far. You can follow my journey living, fighting and working here in Thailand on http://www.LewisQ.com
My Second Muay Thai Fight – Udon Thani December 4th 2012
mrtrader51 Published on Dec 6, 2012
In the run up to the king of Thailand’s birthday (December 5th), I hopped in the the ring for my second Muay Thai fight.
I was a lot more nervous this time, which you might be able to tell from my initial flinching and lack of aggression. The shouting from my corner helped me snap out of it, and I was able to turn things around for a first round win!
