I'm pretty sure those were Wing Chun fighters who never sparred heavy in their life.

Sanda just basically means they actually spar live. Sparring doesn't automatically mean you are doing a martial art from Thailand.

They're basically Sanda guys; it's not too dissimilar from K-1 - pretty aggressive. To cite one pal of mine (a sherdog poster, actually) Will Chope, who's been to China thrice to fight K-1, MMA and Sanda, the K-1 and Sanda bouts were pretty interchangeable.

They spar, they're aggressive (look at the recent K-1 China show, for reference) and the pick of them are damn good.

Did Eakpracha fight?

He was in the corner of a Meenayothin fighter on channel 3 not long before this started.

Was the K-1 China show a sell out.
