not sure but this is happening this thursday supposedly...
Phetmorakot is one of my favorite of these years,i am liking what Kulabdam is doing but this matchup and climb on weight is a big disavantadge to him on this one.
ONE will return to Thailand in October headlined by Rungvisai in boxing, Nong-O in Muay Thai and some thai MMA fighter.
he fought at the exact same weight last fight.
im really liking what is One FC doing and i think they are entertaining more than rizing with these random KB-MT fights nowadays
i hope somehow it is being profitable, they look to be in need for more stars, especially and obviouslly in MMA
they need to build chinese stars from China and Singapore to pay the bills.
Yeah I'm still not sold on Kulabdam as a consistent stadium fighter at the highest level. He can knock people out but Muangthai is crazy and other guys will employ different gameplans. a guy like Petmorakot will annoy him to death.
I believe Kulabdam is young and thus he'll be big enough and has a good style to go after international money and test himself against fighters like Matt Embree, Gabriel Varga and Kevin Van Nostrand.
Petchmorakot seems to be naturally bigger though. Kulabdam usually fights at 135 lbs, Petchmorakot has been fighting at 147-149 bs lately
Kulabdam is one of my favourite fighters right now but yeah in my opinion he hasn't proved to be consistent on the highest level yet as you said. Though i'm not entirely sure of his past record? Superlek, Muangthai, Sangmanee, Saeksan, Pet U Thong al proved to be consistent. Although Kulabdam seems be slightly bigger than these guys, i'd like to see him face at least a few more of them before moving up in weight. Sakesan and Yodlekpet would be great opponents.
If he moves up in weight he can probably get a few KO's but i think he'll mostly fall short against the likes of Manasak, Littewada, Rambo, Petchmorakot etc.
I see Kulabdam smashing Sangmanee for sure. maybe Yodlekpet as well. those are good match ups.
Sangmanee usually fights at 130-132 lbs in the stadiums, doesn't he? If they fight at 135-136 lbs, i think Saeksan and Yodlekpet are better matchups since they're more similar in weight.
Sangmanee would most certainly resort to mindless brawling - for no good reason - and posibly get KTFO for that;
Yodlekpet and Seksan would be sick fights; Littewada should be able to beat him IMO but maybe he's not much durable? not sure...good fimeus and muay khaos will be able to shut him down IMO though.
Anyone know how old Kulabdam is?
Just watched this one. I believe Tawanchay is one of the very best at the 135 pounds range already. Last year when I first heard of him he looked promising but he's evolved a lot since then and looks like a legit beast now. not sure how good Nuenglanlek is but he's definitely legit too. Great fight!
Does anyone know how good Komawut, Nawaphon, Rungkao, Chalamsuk, Phetwason, are? I see their names mentioned sometimes but haven't followed closely and would not recognize them visually
Chujaroen vs Tanonchai was crazy. Chujee looked god-tier in round 3 and then Tanonchai started bringing it back.
the only one I really know out of all of these is Phetwason.
He won Raja Stadium fighter of the year award last year after beating the likes of Superbank, Petnamngam, Petdam, Pettaksin and Rungkao himself - all in dominant fashion - and drawing with Tawanchay. Then he beat Kaonar and got the fight against Pet-U-Thong earlier this year and got kind of outclassed. Last I heard he rematched Kaonar at one of those Pheonix Shows and looked completely lackluster and lost (it was the fight where the commentators had their names switched until the 3rd or 4th round);
I really like his style, he is tall, lanky and awkward looking but employs a quite technical style. Throws a lot of straight rights off the round kick and has caught guys by surprise with that punch a lot of times.
Here are some fights:
Link? Didn't know Tanonchai was back fighting
That's a pretty good record
Do you know the reason that sangmanee get to this style of brawling?
He used to be much more calculated and much better to watch.
I dont watch much fights though
