There are between 6 and 8 fights scheduled per night, the program commencing just after 9 PM with the younger and less experienced Muay Thai exponents, progressing through to the main event. 

Every competitor performs the “Wai Kruu”, a traditional and ritualistic routine, that combines dancing and bowing in honour of the trainers.
