Thai Prisoners Fight For Their Freedom Like Shin-Kicking Gladiators In This VICE Documentary

  • Jake O'Donnell

VICE and UFC have a secret partnership to promote MMA in the hipster community (so that stuff like this never happens again). Ya, we know it sounds corny, but they actually cover some pretty insane stuff — like MMA in Pakistan, or prison Muay Thai.

Their most recent documentary explores the Thai prison system’s fixation with pitting inmates against one another to reduce their sentences or win money. It’s like they never killed anyone in the first place! Eh, ethical concerns aside, hardboiled kick boxers whupping serious ass in the ring is objective awesome.
