    Epic night. One of the greatest kickboxing events since the fall of K-1.

    Disappointed by how sloppy Singdam was in the semi final and the final. I still thought
    he did enough to win the title but whatever.
    Marat looked like a monster in there, maybe he will finally get that top 5 victory in this tournament.
    I know that Buakaw is going to land that sneaky Pride kick one day lol

    Buakaw KO again! This guy is just hitting his stride in this mid 30s. I disagree with the commentator saying that he's towards the end of his career. What? Not according to the results and the fact that he keeps getting more lethal, more savvy, more experienced. Guess if Buakaw decides that he's getting bored, then that is when he'll say adios....

    Casual spotted. Someone has never seen Buakaw in his prime...

    He actually seems just as strong if not stronger than before. You obviously don't know what I've seen or haven't. Seen plenty of his fights from youth to now. Ignorance spotted.

    This is huge news. Kunlun has English commentary now? For this I am willing to actually pay instead of trying to download after the fact when possible. I am going to have to try to hook my Android phone up to my tv now somehow so I can watch full screen and figure out how to jump through all those awkward payment hoops.

    Oh please, every praise for his skills from a woman is reduced to "she must be in awe or in love" or stupid comments someone here made about a female commentator so-called panting after Superbon's body (something about marriage!) because she said how good his skills were when he fought Mohamed.... Jeez. Sounds like certain people already have their minds somewhere in the gutter....LOL.. In fact, that might have been a comment on one of the YouTube videos, but I'm tired of reading about "hero worship" here and other belittling comments, etc. Why can't a fighter just be admired normally by men and women alike?

    I'm in awe that a 35 year old is as devastating as any 23 year old young kickboxer....enough to KO him in the air. If you can't see that he's in some ways better than before, then there are blind fans for sure.

    Yes, youth is important and you don't have that wear and tear, however experience means just as much; honed technique and sizing up your opponent from head to toe, knowing their weakness and when to go in for the right shot, is not something a young buck is as good at. He's a better boxer than in his K1 years I'd wager. That's obvious at least.

    Umm no, he's much slower in execution compared to his prime, and he have been fighting mostly guys that are not the top talent, which is why he's still winning, you need to be observing who he is fighting as well and that's the arrangement for Buakaw the past couple of years. Besides he don't need to prove anything to anyone, like Petrosyan they can pick and choose their fights.

    Kunlun spoilers:

    I'm surprised Zhuo got the decision over Singdam considering Singdam was landing much more kicks and Kunlun has rewarded kicks generously in the past. It was typical ISKA "punches and forward pressure >>>> all" scoring.

    I've pointed out how he's fighting pretty much the best European fighters. His last one was a nobody, the guy who probably should have won a decision over Kiria who made it to the final 8 in Kunlun Fight? If Bon couldn't KO Kiria who arguably should have lost to Toutouh, then I'd argue Bua is as good as the top guys fighting Kunlun, Glory, Enfusion, etc.. Kuliaba who DID make it to the final 4 and who Buakaw easily handled under full MT rules is a nobody? Really? Are you observing who he's fighting or ignoring them conveniently?

    If he'd go back to fighting Thais and take on Sittichai or Bon (of course not in reality, same gym and all), I'd bet my money on him for sure.

    What you call slow and sluggish, I'd call calculating and measured. What I'm also shocked by is how he manhandles tough fighters, tossing them with ease like trash onto their hands and knees or whichever way they end up.... Never see other fighters do it quite like that! The KO was wow, of course, slightly feinting a teep, and then skipping up to toss a left hook like it's nothing.... And just because he's fighting cans, of course, that's why.....:rolleyes:

    You know Tatouh never struck me as someone who could handle the constant clinching and pressure very well, I mean you see all 3 of the Moroccan fighters exposed by that aspect, including Menzuoari because of Marat's conditioning, Bulaid may have won but it was suppose to be a draw since I gave Petchtanong rd 2 and 3, Tatouh not exactly a top European fighter either, their weaknesses were just exposed, because their striking are good but their strength and movement are pretty bad including their conditioning, Bulaid pretty much gased out after 2 rds.

    Kunlun has had English commentary for a few months now. They have they guy who runs full metal dojo mma promotion out of Bangkok named Jon Nutt leading the commentary. He is actually pretty decent and a lot better than anyone in the west that does English kb commentary. He loves his one liners thou but that just brings back memories of when kickboxing was still big and schivello was the English voice so I do not mind.

    Marat was the stand out in this event. He looked like a monster. Props to Mohamed for showing heart and fighting back. I didn't think he'd make it past the first round.

    I was disappointed in Superbons performance. It was a lackluster performance and not surprised Kiria thought he won. Its starting to look more and more like Marat could possibly KO him.

    I thought Singdam looked okay in the first fight. Haven't seen the final yet. No ones posted it.

    yeah kiria vs bon was very underwhelming...
    i feel he's training hard but not improving his defense that much. i'm still hopeful x bon only if he puts marat under pressure.
    hopefully kunlun won't have them fight first.
