Tai Emery has her second BKFC challenge lined up.
Emery (1-0) returns to face Po Denman (0-0) in a flyweight matchup at BKFC Thailand 4 on Dec. 10 from Spaceplus Bangkok, the promotion announced.
Emery scored a flash knockdown in her BKFC debut, but that wasn’t the flash that sent her into internet virality. After she finished Rung-Arun Khunchai with punches 1:41 into their Sept. 3 bout, Emery hopped up on the ring and flashed one of her breasts toward the crowd in celebration.
The video went viral, and Emery’s social media numbers increased exponentially, as she told MMA Junkie in an interview days afterward.
“Life has definitely taken a turn just by me being my crazy little self,” Emery said. “Honestly, it’s been super positive. Everybody feels super liberated by such an act. Hashtags like ‘rebel’ and ‘free,’ and I think that’s really cool. Just by doing something that’s really at the end of the day so silly, if it’s making people feel that positive vibe, then yeah, roll with it.”
Emery also added that another similar, if not something more extreme, celebration will come if she wins her next bout.
“It’s time to do whatever I want. I earned it,” Emery said. “So, if I want to flash my tits again, people, I’m going to do whatever I want. … One hundred percent I’m probably going to do something even stupider. That’s the whole point of this. Like I said, in that moment I get to KO someone like, knock them out, I get to own that point of time for myself.”
