ETSC fight card to include Muay Thai kickboxing


JOHNSON CITY — Not only the area, but the state, will be introduced to Muay Thai kickboxing next Saturday night at the East Tennessee Sports Complex.

Tri-City Thunder #2, a 30-bout card, will be headlined by Johnson City’s Korey Popplewell facing Ken Thompson of Nashville.

“It’s a big fight and a big opportunity,” Popplewell said recently while working out at D-Evil Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness. “The main event is the first full rules for a Thai fight sanctioned in Tennessee, so it’s really good to be a part of something that big — making history, and hopefully there’s a lot more to come. So I plan on putting on a show, and we’ll see come November 16th.”
