Scott Kent, a Muay Thai promoter in Las Vegas believes it.  He thinks fighting fans will embrace Muay Thai as much if not more than they do Mixed Martial Arts.  Why?  Because it could be seen as more violent.  Muay Thai is known as the "Science of Eight Limbs" because fighters can hit with their hands, feet, elbows or knees.  We'll talk to Kent about he he plans to build up a base for Muay Thai and launch it on a national level from right here in Las Vegas.  We'll also hear from a Muay Thai fighter to better understand how different it is from other forms of fighting.
