FIGHTER SPOTLIGHT: Brooke Farrell & “The Fighting Farrell’s”
When Brooke visited Thailand with her husband, Eddie, in 2015 for a training holiday, they met some people that were in the country for a few months. These people focused on just training and fighting, and they thought, “That’s awesome!” But the young couple had obligations and responsibilities back home in Australia – a business, phone plans, a car, and two dogs. “Too much stuff,” says Brooke. However, they couldn’t stop thinking about the possibilities and what it would be like to be full time professional fighters living in Thailand, simply by giving up what they had and by choosing that lifestyle. The thought of that dream nagged them until they started taking steps to making it a reality. They sold their business, all their “stuff”, and took their dogs, Sage and Poppy, with them to Thailand.
