    Yeah I figured that once his size advantage was taken away he wouldn't look as good. Granted Sakmongkol isn't exactly the greatest fighter ever but he was a champion and it was a good win for Chadd.

    I don't think it was that surprising. Sakmonkol is basically like a second tier fighter in that division, at the same kind of level as guys like Sensiri, Kriankrai, Aranchai, Manachai, Kaewkungwan, Saksongkram or even Bangpleenoi. I don't see any reason why Collins can't compete with those type of guys. His performances against Manasak, Saenchai and Sekson are arguably more impressive than this.

    Yeah I agree but imo there are some fighters, foreigners in particular, that do well when they are matched against smaller or shorter fighters and once that advantage is taken away they don't look as good. Take Genji for instance, you could say some of wins in japan were a result of his opponents not being motivated or properly prepared which could be true but he has beaten better fighters than Sakmongkol but Sakmongkol straight up made him look bad. He is used to having range and length on his opponents and against a taller guy he appeared to be completely lost on how to deal with it. Chadd did have a good showing against Manasak so i was a bit off on my thought though.

    How do you think this will go? Kulabdam is entertaining to watch but would I be right in saying he has been fighting B level competition?? Be interesting to see how this goes

    yes he's been fighting B level competition. he's very good but Muangthai will be too much for him. it's about time he scores another elbow uppercut KO.

    wow what a great fight. such a shame that people tune in to see bullshit fights while no one knows about a legit gem like this. myself included, I only put it on now due to utmost boredom.
