    According to wiki, they fought 3 times and Singdam won all 3. I dont know if its 100% accurate though.

    LOL you guys....

    I know you're trolling but I don't understand where the saying "muay thai fighters don't have head movement" myth comes from.

    Yes with all the risk of getting high kicked, and the clinch it doesn't allow you to slip punches like in western boxing, but most thai guys that fight in kickboxing (Yodsanklai, Buakaw, Sittichai, Kaew etc.) slip more than the average kickboxer. And they do it on instinct not by having to adapt to kickboxing. It's subtle but one must be blind not to see it.

    K-1 had a press conference.

    They're doing 3 shows in the smaller Saitama Super Arena config. Still double the seats of the venue they've been using now. Then early 2018 a show in the big Saitama.

    Holy shit, I'm glad I read your comment at the bottom and realized you weren't serious. I was about to go OFF on you man, and you of all people should know better, lol.

    I'll just leave this here to make myself feel better.

    wow that's a real slick effort at trolling. I feel proud to be among the 1%ers who would catch on to this.

    Maybe, I should have aimed for something more like this? It's concision is really concise.

    The problem is he isn't being sarcastic he's just that foolish.

    I assume a lot of people don't watch much Mauy Thai at all.
    To be honest I thought most Mauy Thai fighters fought like Pornsanae Sitmonchai for a while. But he's old and actually has a slightly unorthodox style compared to other Thai fighters.

    That being said I can understand if someone said the stadium Mauy Thai scoring should favor punches and volume slightly more than it does now.

    Effective puches do score, but when facing opponents that will counter with punches kicks knees and the clinch it's not the best strategy to try to stand and bang with punches.

    Well just like we have predicted.

    Amnat has also just announced his retirement from muay thai fights.



    He said his ribs got injured in the same spot from his fight in China, so that's that.

    It was a total set up fight, but still good that he didn't blow it. Umeno that is, not Tenshin.

    Umeno could not get a KO again? Sucks for him.

    All the people in question, are just that stupid. And there are many more where that came from. Most of the self identified muay thai fans out there, are just that stupid and need to shape up.

    Well, to all appearances, he totally owned Juan Mario, so mission accomplished. Also, Umeno has under performed against mediocre opposition in the past, so this performance looked fine to me.

    First time I've actually seen Juan Mario fight. I never realized how small he was. He should probably not be fighting 130 guys.
