    And Glory isnt the only player either like K-1 was. The Chinese orgs bring in a lot of Thais.

    Sasnchai? That's looking more like it was just a one fight thing.

    maybe, he's still in the rankings, though. doubt they keep pushing him.

    we'll see couple more thais when Glory comes to thailand.

    Finally saw the fight.

    Saketdao did make a compelling case for the thai clinch in MMA.

    Let's see how it plays as he moves up in opponents' quality.

    There were times in K1's history when there were more than one thai in there MAX division. There was still never any doubt that in practice they had a 'one thai policy'.

    That policy was not an official policy, they never announced it was the case. However K-1 has often been trying to make sure their Japanese stars would win as often as possible, as it would help getting the Japanese audience more interested in their product (you follow your national fighters). Many suspected they only had Buakaw from Thailand in K-1 Max and before that only Kaolan Kaovichit to limit the chances of Thai fighters winning K-1 Max every year. There's been other Thais in K-1 overall though. However many believe they made sure they would not be more than 1 Thai fighter per tournament.

    Check out Demetrious Johnson or Jon Jones fights to see how they incorporate thai style clinching at the highest levels. It doesn't have to exist in a bubble, the grips are the same, you just use the leverages differently. For wrestling its more for snapping the head down, where thais are more circular with the grips. DJ has now destroyed a world combat sambo champ and a gold medal wrestler in the clinch with nowhere near the amateur pedigree as his opponents. Much can be attributed to his clinch flow between the clinching styles.

    To the original topic, I'm hoping Evolve either produces a fighter with strong muay thai or poaches a talented young fighter to groom. Why not poach someone like Sangmanee when he was 16 and had aspirations to be a boxer versus muay thai legends with tons of mileage already. You can easily pay their living expenses, and they can double as coaches like their current crop of trainers.

    LOOOL

    I ask myself this question all the time. Doesn't make sense to have all these retired 30 something Thai's starting MMA with the thousands of young prime Thai's out there.

    Not sure. Don't really follow MMA apart from the occasional UFC fight.

    They claim to be the biggest org in Asia but really they are a South East Asian promotion since they stopped throwing money to get big MMA name. Division is really thin and top-heavy and fighters barely get 2 fights a year unless they are with Evolve MMA.
