YOKKAO World Champion -65kg, Liam Harrison is one of the greatest Muay Thai fighters ever to come out of the UK. The 32 year-old is a multi-time world champion and recipient of the Muay Siam Magazine Foreign Fighter of the Year in 2007. After a short break from competing due to an injury sustained in December last year, Liam recently went on a seminar tour in the US along with official YOKKAO commentator, Vinny Shoreman. The duo delivered a well-received seminar series that focused on both mental and physical aspects of Muay Thai.
Towards the tail end of the tour, they were invited to Joe Rogan’s podcast program for an in-depth interview. Joe Rogan needs little introduction for mixed martial arts fans. The comedian and martial arts commentator hosts his “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast show, which is one of the most popular podcasts in the world. Joe Rogan regularly invites top UFC fighters and celebrities for interviews. For Liam Harrison to go on the show is a clear acknowledgement of his legendary status in the sport of Muay Thai.
Prior to the interview, Joe Rogan even got geared up for a few rounds with the Hitman himself holding the pads. Over the course of the almost 2-hour long interview, the trio went into in-depth discussions relating to Muay Thai and the current fighting landscape. The wide range of topics include the high standard of YOKKAO shows, Saenchai, mental training for fight sports and many others. This is a podcast not to be missed by anyone who is even remotely a fan of Muay Thai or MMA. Liam is back training in full intensity and it won’t be long before his return to the ring.
