The Challenger back on track

Earlier I'd blogged about the reality tv series: The Challenger.

Essentially it is season 2 of the Contender Asia, the Muay Thai tournament where all the fighters live together in a loft and the whole shebang is filmed.

It was almost a year ago when they were announcing the fighters, as well as Clifton Brown to be one of the coaches. Then we never heard from them again.

ANYWAYS... it seems the project is back. They've announced new coaches and a couple of fighters. You can check it out in the link below.

WMC claims the show should be airing by the end of this year....

This interests me mostly because Muay Thai could use more exposure...
The original Contender Asia did well in certain countries, but not so much in the North America. Hopefully a second season might improve on the first, generate new interest, and in turn help educate the masses.
