    Do u guys know any legit thai boxers in mma? CK wants to see a thai boxer who can adapt in mma and destroy others with his/her thai boxing skills. Joanne calderwood doesnt look that good. The other champion girl looks good but ck wants to see how a good thai boxer deals with a well rounded mma guy with strong wrestling.

    You're joking right? M16
    There's also Yodsanan but he hasn't done nearly so well.

    pretty sure Anderson is a TKD guy at heart:

    as strange as it sounds, the Chute Boxe guys come from a lineage of Brazilian TKD guys...

    he was in One FC's inaugural event...not sure if he's still fighting there. love the glove touch lol:



    i think he was known for being more of a boxer though (the Thai Tyson)...58-3 in boxing.

    Just curious, what makes you feel as though Edson has more of a TKD base? His kicks overall look Thai to me, and his low and switch kicks look extremely Thai.

    He moves alot. And he throws spinning kicks alot. You know whAt? Hes more of a kickboxer than a thai boxer. Thai boxers dont move around alot. They have a strong base and they usually walk others down. They also dont throw alot of leg kicks. They favor body kicks and they rarely ever throw spinning kicks.

    His first fight is on youtube but I think he's retired and just coaches now.

    well silva is one of the few in UFC who display a dominant clinch game mixed with knees and elbows. everyone thinks of the roundhouse as the showcase strike for muay thai, but its the clinch, knees and elbows that distinguish it from other sports under the kickboxing umbrella.

    @paradigm yeah silva has TKD lineage, but hes still one of the best muay thai practitioners in ufc. when it comes to good mma artists, its hard to say "this guy is TKD, or this guy is bjj fighter". ppl look at nick diaz as one of the posterboys of boxing in ufc, but no one denies he's a legit bjj fighter.

    as for TKD style, how often do you guys see anderson silva throw a spinning kick? :D
