"The Contender: Muay Thai"- Episode 4

Early on in the episode, Yukai and Alain were ill.

With Rafik Bakkouri eliminated last week, Bruce Macfie replaced him as the captain of the Wild Boars.

Challenge #4: One member at a time, each team had to break a series of ice blocks in order to collect the puzzle pieces needed to solve a puzzle. Once all of their ice blocks were broken, the team could then try and solve their puzzle, which was their team’s logo. The first team that solved their puzzle and hung a mask above it won.

The Wild Boars had the early lead and were the first ones to take their shot at their puzzle. Did they hang on to win their third challenge out of four?...

…NO, thanks to leaving out a puzzle piece, so the Tiger Kings won their second challenge in a row after they had lost their first two! They won the right to eat dinner at an exotic resort.

PRELIMINARY FIGHT #4: Yodsaenklai (Tiger Kings) vs. Bruce Macfie (Wild Boars)

Will Macfie be the second captain in a row to fall? Let’s find out.

Round 1: While Yodsaenklai did nothing but kicks this round, they were enough to help him dominate this round, so I gave him a 10-9 score.

Round 2: This was a tighter round than the first, with Yodsaenklai starting to use some punches as well. I gave him another round, so he led after two, 20-18.

Round 3: Another solid round goes to Yodsaenklai, making the score 30-27.

Round 4: Early on in the round, Macfie missed a kick and fell on the ground. I felt this was Macfie’s best round thus far, but thanks to that early fall, I gave Yodsaenklai another round. Thus, I had it 40-36 after four.

Final Round: I thought Macfie won this round, but it was too little too late, as Yodsaenklai advanced to the quarterfinals. My final score was 49-46.
