2R KO via head kick.
3.2m baht in less than 6 minute. Great job ^^
Upset of the year by far,99% of the fans thought it would be a limited by contract performance like Buakaw had against him.
I wonder why Yilong can stand the head kick 4-5 time like it was nothing(Except the last one^^) drug?? Maybe.
maybe because the first were "nothing"....anyway he doesn't do antidoping tests....so
Why does this have its own thread... not an important fight
you're right. should have his own subforum like the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight.
Spoiler title dude.
Not an important fight but an important result.
Sittichai made Yi Long's bald dome piece strum the ropes like bass guitar chords.
Yi Long should have another chance against a top guy,what about Grigorian or Allazov ?
Yi long has no defense watsoever for left kick left knee. All power strikes landing at sittichai’s will. Pure demolition
always new that yi long's previous fights were fixed. Look how easy it was to hit yi long, sitichai hit him with shots at will. Pretty sure buakaw and other fighters could of koed him aswell if it wasn't for the fixes
lol @ giving him a 10 count.
What's the story with the buakaw fight?
@oyvindt is our chinese insider so he can explain way better than me.
they both fought twice, in the first fight buakaw was coming off a series of injuries and was looking really sloppy bad but was more than enough to outclass and beat Yi long
on the second fight there was big indications that the refereeing,judges,use of rules and pre established contracts to limit buakaw to win the fight(to set up a triology)
a lot of people and the biggest Rival at the chinese market of WLF; Kunlun fight(the org that buakaw was with and fighting-being promoted for them) warned him multiple times to not take the fight under WLF banner,and it was offered many times to yi long fight the second one on Kunlun on other neutral-Collab organization to make things Fair
Yi Long is a big market product from WLF,dude has received robbery decisions against almost any notable fighter he "beat",because he produce insanely huge number in chinese TV audience....
The second fight took place on WLF,and Buakaw knew that it would be unfair and his performance was going to be limited, he couldnt KO Yi long and everytime Yi long was in a dangerous position the ref stopped the fight and gave him time to recover.
They took multiple points from buakaw after the fight time for "breaking the rules",they came with a lot of excuses like too much clinch and etc.
Yi long was awarded with the decision while he got his ass kicked,a lot of people went mad on WLF for this set up and all buakaw had to do to win "people´s heart" was setting a fake ass backstage cry and goes out as he didnt knew nothing that was set to happen
he went for the money and got it,WLF got screwed for it but Kunlun too,Buakaw image just got better for going out of this situation as the poor victim
in the end of the day the people was with buakaw and the both orgs angry with him for opposing reasons.
pretty much that was the deal,except buakaw contract included a second fight which was to be held at kunlun from the start.
kunlun announced the fight and yi long/wlf went to kunlun after a buakaw's match to present the fight and a second meeting in thailand...everything was set in place and then wlf "postponed" the fight.
everybody thought it was a strategy to get buakaw overworked because he was fighting every month and kept training....but they finally call it off and then buakaw fought dyland salvador under mt rules instead.
wlf has a special vengeance vs buakaw because the day he won yi long,it's the day he went to kunlun to sign the contract with them....wlf hoped he would sign with them. it was considered a dick move.
the fight was sold back to wlf,wlf prob paid a fine for breach of contract but at last henan tv forked the $$ for the tv rights and bye bye...
kunlun bosses were at the fight and went to party with wlf honchos,they all knew.
if buakaw didn't accept the fight,they would have ruined his reputation with fake news,like they are doing now...besides wlf trolls and media in general considered the first fight "a robbery",so there was a lot of pressure on buakaw to fight the second one.
chinese media and social media is not like ours...it's an infinite net of legit news but also uncontrollable fake news that look very professional, which are powerful enough to influence public opinion....elevate fighters or ruin them and works in waves.....today it's buakaw day and he's the best, tomorrow it's yod's and buakaw is shit,then it's sittichai turn,and then another day sittichai is shit and bon is so much better...whatever keeps fans interested.
now it's sittichai day and buakaw and his fighters are shit. some defend buakaw many are accusing him to be a traitor who sold out to wlf whereby sittichai is an honest hero...
it will change soon...because that's how things are in china.
overall i think it worked FANTASTIC because despite opposite opinions everybody got something to say,someone to accuse or root for...there is a lot of talking and free publicity for everybody,so in good or bad everyone is a winner. china is on the international radar and that's fine for them.
Lmfao, I know punching bags that have put up more of a fight. Sittichai practically look confused as to how easily he won.
This happens when they don"t fix the fights anymore.
He will fight another battle against the parkinson disease
Yi Long lose power because he not wearing shaolin power monk pants in this fight, if he wear he win ok ok
