So every now and then I have to sit back and really appreciate how far women’s fighting has come. And this moment came via that incredible castle you see above – where a women’s Muaythai title fight took place last night.
St Tropez in France is more known for a more different kind of glamour (yes, I think fighting is glamorous – get over it) but they’ve build a great annual event which this year showcased female strength at its best.
It was Brazil vs Thailand – Chommanee Sor Taehiran taking on Tania Duarte in what looks like a blistering fight.
This event is a highlight on the French fight scene so first of all that they included women, and second that they went for a title bout even though neither women are French is interesting.
And the final part which made me really smile is what Chomanee is wearing. Bright and colourful sports-bra with matching projouds on her arms – let’s be girly and kick ass!

So I know it’s just one event among many fightcards which are all-male – Kunlun looking at you – but we’ll take every small step we can!
