    Striking in MMA is many levels below what you see in muay thai.

    So this is to show all you MMA fans how high level muay thai sparring should looks.

    That was alright but it doesn’t compare to MMA striking.

    This is the Muay Thai equivalent of pornography

    I see they've been taking boxing lessons from Deontay Wilder.

    Those hammerfist/awkward backfisting when in boxing/standup.................Never seen that in boxing, completely sloppy.



    But I wonder if it works, since you hit from weird angles and are constantly attacking.....Buakaw seemed to overwhelm with those hammerfist from above, but maybe that's because the other guy was clearly outsized by him, thus it only works on shorter people perhaps.


    I know they are semi playing around and it got more serious as it went on.

    To those not familiar with Buakaw Por Pramuk his record in kickboxing is 239-24-12. Winning two K-1 MAX World Titles. In my opinion he is one of the greatest strikers in combat sport history.

    Possibly because both the hammerfist and the backfist are banned in boxing.

    Buakaw is awesome, but it is silly to compare it with a sport includuding a lot of grappling...

    Him and Kaoklai Kaennorsing were my two favorites growing up, I know many will look at Kaoklai's record and be like wtf...he has a lot of losses...but look closer...to guys like Sefo, Hong man choi...guys that outweighed him by a ton.
