    Ok. Lets start from here. How do nak muays adjust or adapt to mma rules with their muay thai striking background?

    Adjust stance to a lower/wider base. Don't hold Gaurd quite as high. Don't start slow. Don't just spam mid round kicks. There's probably more to it, but I don't care enough to elaborate. I'd rather watch Muay Thai than MMA. Bottom line all of the techniques are applicable, it's just the rhythm, pacing, and stance adjustments that need to be made. Oh, and also learning BJJ and Wrestling, which is the biggest factor.

    Any thai boxers with a lower wider stance in muay thai competitions?

    You'll see guys lower their base when throwing punches from a more boxing oriented stance like Jomthong of course, but having a lower wide stance isn't a place you want to stay in MT because it leaves you more vulnerable to leg kicks, and limits ability to fire off knees and work in the clinch. Also elbows are executed better at a more upright stance.

    No. CK's trainer is European. Not American. You know what is a gimmick? Your avatar.

    The guy doesnt even train. Stop replying and do yourself a favor.

    LOJ is going to talk to his trainer AS about CK and LOJ trainer is going to tell LOJ that CK sucks at life.

    Yes, but you need to have a dick for that first.

    For all the other posters who are genuinely curious on this topic. Nearly all top level nak muays have developed head movement, though it is subtle... it exists.

    Secondly,

    You guys all KNOW Celestial Kid is a troll. Why do you respond to him?
