Yet they still win most of time even when the rules are restricted and the fans always go home happy from what i can tell. When have they not gone home happy?

Plus ever thought that if the Thai's tried their maximum the fight would last 1 maybe 2 rounds and fans might be unhappy it didn't go on long enough.

The answer is Yes, I would be stupid if I assumed farangs will get robbed if they dont dominate the opponent based on a couple of incidents.
Man, compared to chinese decisions every other country looks pale. You could combine the netherlands, japan, thailand and france and you wouldn´t even come close to the shit that happes in china.

Please don't start adding this to your list of Thai/Muay Thai hate. Lets nip this one in the bud.

You're blowing it out of all proportion. Most sportsmen perform better in front of their home crowd. That's a fact. That's all were talking about. Some Thai's are a percentage off when fighting abroad that's it. Most viewers won't notice and have a great night.

Look at other sports where one country is miles better than pretty much the rest of the world. You think an American baseball/basketball/football team plays a team abroad and takes it quite as seriously as a play off decider back home? No chance.

That's all it is. Scratch it off your list of hate.

This. When you travel a long way and just have 2-3 days to getting accustomed to jet lag, climate conditions, food etc. you just don´t perform like you normally do.

Plus it´s two people that make a fight.
