Clifton Brown is one of the most decorated foreign Muay Thai fighters to have competed in the international and Thai circuit.
He’s the first Canadian to become a world champion in Muay Thai, having world titles in IMTF, IKKC, and the prestigious WMC title 3 times. He’s fought well-known fighters such as Kaoklai Kaennorsing and Nathan Corbett.
In this video with CBC, he briefs us through his philosophy towards life — the difference between struggle and suffering, and his experience through his first world title. Upon reflection, the mindset and psychology to compete at that level intrigues Clifton — but most notably it changes his outlook towards loss, failure, and life.
