I've trained Muay-Thai for 4 years + now under some very talented guys. That being said, I have never been side kicked to the thigh. I don't want to be ignorant here so maybe you can help. For those of you with more experience with these kicks, do you consider these significant, damaging strikes? Or were they just busy work and point fighting as Edgar called in on the post fight? I mean particularly the way Bendo was landing them. I know from watching Jones that Jones damages people with them but Bendo's didn't have that same effect as far as I can tell.
