    What are your thoughts on the Sitmonchai v varga fight? I think it might be tough for yodkhunpon considering he is still adjusting to the rules and doesn't seem to have the sharpest boxing. I hope he wins, but I think he might get blitzed. These two should just fight under Muay Thai rules considering they both do Muay Thai..

    he will be fine i just pray someone explains to him he can grab the head and knee because he look scared to death to do it in his first fight. He is good defensively and i think raz was a better boxer than varga and he still did fine

    Lol at that bloodyelbow guy saying Sitmonchai fighters have great conditioning even by Thai standards. These tools need to stick to MMA.

    I will have to agree with Coca here, lol at Sitmonchai has the best cardio in muay thai,
    it is the other way around. These guys need to learn to pace themselves,
    but in 3 rounds it's perfect.

    The Sitmonchai video struck me as odd.

    Agreed. It seems like he's scared to death to clinch at all, he should just do it and see what he can get away with. I see so many fighters doing the double handed clinch and the refs let it go. Since half the glory roster isn't good at clinching, he might want to take advantage of that and start aiming those knees to the head too.

    the plum is legal you just must knee right after clinching. He had a couple of perfect opportunities to knee the head but as he said in the video he was to scared to foul. Glory needs to make sure that the fighters that do not speak english actually understand the rules. As there has been a couple of fighters who have refused to clinch because they believe it is illegal

    The Sitmonchai camp should be aware of the rules, and taylor his training camp to reflect this. This is a problem that I see with many Thais that attempt kickboxing. They train the same as if it's a Muay Thai match. The strategy is different.

    Glory came to him not the other way around. If you want to be a international organization you need to have your rules explained to the fighters in there native tongue. This is common sense but once again just like the thread about badr fighting in america you will disappear after you show your ignorance and are called out for it

    Yes but the there is the problem of glory letting the refs decide if clinching will be allowed in any particular fight and not following the 3 second rule on their books. Then you also even have the glory commentators saying the clinch is not allowed. Also I believe in thailand they think it is like new k1 rules where there is no 2 hand clinch in any kb match

    I agree, there have been inconsistencies in the way they manage the clinching aspect.

    Hollenbeck has probably exploited what's really allowed more than anyone else, but if you got a dumb ref in there creating breaks almost instantly it throws a fighters gameplan out the window.

    So you haven't seen much of Yodkhunpon? He frequently fights slow in round 1.

    You're the bloodyelbow guy playing the pundit in that video, right?

    While fighting regularly no doubt has an effect on the fighters mindset there also seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about why Muay Thai fights tend to start slow.

    This is how i see it. Firstly not all fights do start slow especially with the younger fighters you see at the weekends but it is the general rule.

    Secondly it's a martial art as well as a fight don't forget. It's looked at in a different way to mma and kickboxing, which are scored more like traditional boxing. In Muay Thai they use the ten point must system but they don't really. Who's winning a Muay Thai fight is a constantly moving target so it's not so important to win the early rounds and get points in the bag.

    Plus you can't gas out in Muay Thai period. You can't go out there swinging gas after 1 round lose all technique and flop about for the rest of the fight. Poise balance strength technique have to be maintained through out the fight. That's why the later rounds are given more weight by the judges when you're expected to be getting tired.

    Finally they tend to start slow because it's the most efficient way to fight especially against another top fighter which is how the Thai's are usually matched up. You need to get a good look at each other first and build up the pace. Like when any top sportsmen collide things tend to be close. That's not to say if they hurt their opponent early they won't go for the kill they will.
