A great podcast with a great human.
Zubair is a father, fighter, coach, and intellectual, He does not demonstrate the characteristics that traditionally inhabit a fighter. He is sure of himself, but not abrasive. He is soft spoken, but a vicious competitor in the ring. He preaches about love, how a fighter can live with love, and win in competition. What may seem like a paradox becomes clear once you have the chance to listen to him. He is a true ambassador of the sport of Muay Thai, and an all around good person.
