    Panpayak and co have been using the jitmuangnon name for as long as i can remember. A lot of the p.k saenchai fighters were bought though, they haven't been around that long from what I know.

    Yes there is. A lot of the super gyms best talent is bought like PK Saenchai, some of Petchyidee's definitely was or is bought, some of Paranchai's is, some of Sor.Jor.Vichitpadriew is. But there are still super gyms where they've produced most of their best fighters themselves: I think this is true for the most part of Sor Sommai and Jitmuangnon and Kiatmoo9 obviously (but I get the sense that Kiatmoo9 is not much of a gambler's gym).

    Panpayak was already very good when he went to Jitmuangnon, although still young had had a lot of fights and was very highly regarded, was involved with Fairtex for a bit, his older half brother is Kompayak Fairtex

    Dropping knowledge. Most young talents were at some point bought out by gym owners who have pull in the big stadiums, without being bought out the talented young talent will wither away at run down shows and fight subpar competition, resulting in a wasted career. Rarely would a nobody from a unknown gym, with very few ties to the gambling scheme/ promoters be allowed to compete in big stadiums.

    I don't get it. Are these more kickboxing oriented than Mauy Thai ? How is this trolling?

    It would be cool someone familiar with the stadium circuit would post a weekly or bi monthly thread about top ranked fighters. The news/ results from Thailand thread doesn't give much context for the sport.

    It's harder to come up with objective rankings in muay thai given how often they fight, as well as the weight differences and what not. Sangmanee, Panpayak, Pet U Tong, Muangthai, Satanmuanglek, Pernkun, Rungnarai, Petpanomrung, Thanonchai and Superlek are some of the top fighters you should look into.

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking for. Do you want someone, at the end of each month or two weeks or whatever, to do a round up of the most notable fight results during that period of time? Or do you want us to make rankings on a bi weekly/monthly basis?

    The thailand thread mostly just covers the goings on of the very best fighters, we don't bring up the results of smaller shows or smaller name fighters that much. And pretty much nothing slips through the net, if any of thailand's top fighters is in action, we almost always bring it up.

    Something similar to Sherdog's MMA rankings. A list of the top fighters, their recent fights and maybe something about their fight style or how they are unique.

    You could make something like this thread but about a subject you actually like and respect.

    Good shout with CSA, really like the fighters coming out of there at the moment. I seen Gaston is going to MMA now, would like to seem him stick around MT for a while longer.
