‘I got in a lot of trouble’: Tai Emery reveals possible punishment for repeat of viral celebration at BKFC Thailand 4


Tai Emery is not ruling out another viral post-fight celebration at Saturday’s BKFC Thailand 4 event, but she did reveal the price she may pay if she crosses any lines.

In her second promotion bout,

Emery will face Po Denman. The 35-year-old went viral for flashing the crowd following her first-round knockout win of Rung-Arun Khunchai at BKFC Thailand 3 in September, a moment that boosted her following in a big way.

“I will say one thing, I did get in a lot of trouble with Dave Feldman from BKFC — just for everyone that wanted to know some repercussions — I was in trouble, so thanks everyone, all you Karens, for having a little complaint,” Emery told MMA Fighting. “I’m sorry about that, but this is an 18+ event, so just don’t watch.”

Will there be a repeat? Perhaps. But according to Emery, if she does it again, or anything similar, she could face some pretty hefty sanctions from the promotion.

“They said I would be punished if they catch me in a stunt. Emery stated that this was because Emery had been taken to the principal’s office again. “Nothing’s changed. I’ve been told that the stunt that I pulled will not be allowed. Their talking millions of bahts in fines, but what’s good? We’ll see what happens.”

Denman had a pretty viral moment in her own right earlier this year when she faced a man at Mongkol Fight Night and won by knockout. Denman has a boxing background and a 17-1-1 record, along with a 10-fight winning streak.

Emery expects a hard-fought battle with an opponent she has a lot of respect for. She doesn’t think about celebrating after the fight if it goes as she hopes.

” I don’t try to outdo myself. Instead, I keep being me.” she said. I think that maybe it’s a surprise factor for others. But for me, and for other people that get to see past what Instagram may reveal, or for the people that actually give me the time of day to get to know my personality, they all know this is just a very normal Tai thing to do.

” It’s not about being the best. For me, it’s going to be as surprising and as exciting as watching myself react in surprise. That’s a sense of freedom when you can just be yourself, especially on that sort of stage. It’s hard to be yourself. It’s hard to do. I will just be me, so welcome to the s***show .”
