It's impossible to not like Saenchai.

Did anyone see that Baukaw became a Monk last year?

I used to not like Baukaw because I thought his achievements were all due to physical superiority -- like he was a cyborg or terminator that won on superior attributes alone.
Now that I'm a little older and wiser I see what his style was all about.

Buakaw was in a league of it's own. He did get beaten but he was and still is a incredible fighter

i've seen him fight for a long time i guess, starting the K1 max in the early 2000's or so. Where Saenchai is a bit of the joker build fragile but speedy. Buakaw is indeed built like a Muay Thai tank. All due to his grueling training regime! The guy works really hard for it and has excellent technique and is ruthless in the ring





Those fights between him and Masato, Sauer, Kraus and Zambidi's where f*cking legendary

There is a cool video where he shuts down Mike Zambidi's, a worldclass Kickboxer with blistering handspeed and feared by the top 5 K1 Max fighters. There you can see how high is fight IQ really is

I'll look it up and post it

I believe he became a monk for a period or so, i read something about honouring the king this way? Either way, he has an impressive character

Ask for the blue pill. The rabbit hole isn't that nice

Wow he hit the wall. Really strange.

I guess age and 360 fights will do that to you but it just seems like it happened all at once.

wow. prob the best standup fighter in history

this is why I don't buy the size diff. bs with Floyd. An elite striker can handle shots from a slightly bigger fighter.

RE: Some history and breakdown of traditional Muay Thai
The thing about these Thais is they have no holes in their game.

They spent their childhood sparring everyday, their late teens fighting twice a week for pennies, then their early twenties becoming the champion. Their number of fights is in the hundreds.
By their thirties, they're past their prime, practically in retirement and just taking exciting K1 superfights, but they have so much experience nothing that their opponent does ever surprises them.

Compare that to an MMA Heavyweight Champ who has had like 8-12 pro fights, and how easily they all get KO'd by the title contender.

Watch Bakauw get blitzed by a fast aggressive Brazilian, only to weather the storm, come back and beat him down.
