Women are FINALLY allowed to fight at Lumpinee, but the current wave of COVID keeps pushing back their debut. Meet the first women scheduled to fight at the legendary Muay Thai stadium, the history-makers.

All these progressive steps have led to more opportunities for women to fight, given them a brighter spotlight in the fight scene and (in some cases) better paydays. A few organizations and events are to thank for this newfound interest in women fighters, whether by proactive or reactive means.
