Warrior’s Cup 30 Recap

With an elbow heard around the world, Kate Allen of 8 Limbs Muay Thai academy in Philadelphia closed out the night of an amazing show. Warrior’s Cup 30 in Flushing, Queens highlighted some of the best and brightest in the East Coast Muay Thai scene. 15 fights were put on at the Queen’s Theatre–an unusual venue to hold a ring. It felt as though the audience was watching a play in their stacked seats. A show was definitely put on, with several bouts vying for the “Fight of the Night”.

The theater was packed and completely sold out–many were still waiting outside to get in up until the very last fight. Teammates and family kept each other posted on the results via text messages, Facebook updates, or the occasional runner to let a group know whether to be cheerful or somber. New York Fighting was on hand, tracking every punch, kick, knee, and elbow. Full results are listed below, along with Josh Brandenburg’s (@drinkandsmilenow) highlight photos of the night.
