Official website of San Diego based Pro Muay Thai Fighter and Artist Marvin Madariaga.


My mentality in the ring is completely opposite from my real personality. The Mad Lion turns on. I go in there with high intensity to destroy.
— Marvin Madariaga

Born and raised in Hawaii, Marvin 'The Mad Lion' Madariaga is a rare amalgamation of visionary artist and modern day warrior.

A delicate mix of serenity and ferocity that ignites precisely at the right moment.

The Mad Lion’ is a moniker that symbolizes Marvin's passion, dedication and utmost love for his art and his intensity in the ring.

His long obsession with Lions is not merely a metaphor – rather, it is a code in which he lives his life by.

Loyalty, Courage, and Majesty.

Muay Thai has really developed my character and my ability to overcome adversity. Fighting has really humbled me, and taught me to be a better human being by having deep gratitude for life.
— Marvin Madariaga

These qualities runs through his veins, and anyone who has come into contact with him can easily confirm that fact without hesitation.

Marvin might seem like a low key, easy going artist in regular life, but he is in possession of a highly combustible mix of ingredients that only comes alive in the ring.

That's when the world realizes, without doubt, that he is indeed the real deal.

There's a reason why Marvin's fights are often described as “..pure, raw, and electrifying..” by spectators.

No champion is ever successful without a top-notch team.
