Some history and breakdown of traditional Muay Thai

RE: Some history and breakdown of traditional Muay Thai
Thais are pretty complete standup fighters

the only weakness I see is that they are quite slow to get into the groove and they can get blitzed at times by a spazzing opponent

Kyokushin is also good, but overall I think Thai boxing is the ultimate standup art

^ that strategy worked for Tenshin against Wanchalong

but i'm guessing it usually doesn't work

Lol

I remember this fight watching it as it happened. Buakaw was such a savage back then. But i gotta say the asian fighters back then (and now i guess) where well known for there heart and fighting spirit.

I remember matches from Mushashi who absolutely got killed round after round but never gave up

True Warrior/Samurai spirit they don't teach you in a MMA gym

yeah Kohi was the K1 max japan champ at the time. no slouch

but Buakaw was ridiculous

i can't believe Masato beat him

K1 had corrupt judging and refs

This is true. They can often underestimate the hand power of non-Thais, and the long outstretched arms are sometimes a disaster against looping power-shots like lead-hooks or overhands.

Some will just go with punches to the head, the same way Wrestle-Boxers just eat leg-kicks. You can see that in the Baukaw vid I posted on page 2, but Baukaw just accepts that he's going to take a series of concussive shots, holds his composure, and reclaims the ground.

RE: Some history and breakdown of traditional Muay Thai
yeah and Kiatsongrit famously got his jaw broken by Rick Roufus in the 1st round.. only to come back to destroy him

but he could have been KOed

They always start off slow.. even when they know the western fighters will BLITZ

Yeah he got robbed but Masato was also the real deal though

Buakaw, Zambidi, Sauer, Masato, Petrosyan and Kraus

These where the elite of the elite in the K1 Max

Check out this fight. Absolutely insane in terms of speed, technique and visciousnes

Albert Kraus vs Andy Souwer 2

He may be on something but with his build it might not be necessary. His training seems to be mainly bodybuilding to look impressive on posters, cause that's what he's selling now and not impressive ring performance. He looks muscle heavy, slow and not particularly powerful. I don't watch his new fights at all. For me Buakaw Por Pramuk and Buakaw Banchamek are two different people.

As for K1 judging and the Masato fights, I think this is the reason Masato has a victory over Buakaw. Imagine the psychological aspect of kicking Masato around like a sack of potatoes for 3 rounds and having that declared a draw. Now compare Buakaw getting knocked down by Andre Dida (a legit knockdown) and by Masato in their second fight (not exactly legit considering buakaw was off balance). In the Dida fight Buakaw sticks to his game and gets a draw after 3 rounds. In the second Masato fight he goes head hunting because the only way he will get a draw after 3 rounds, is if he ko's Masato, so he doesn't follow his game plan and legit loses instead of losing a bs decision.

As for his physical superiority, well he was physically superior, even though he was underweight for his class. He was 152 pounds where in some cases Andy Souwer was as high as 172 (Souwer did say that that was too high for him and that his optimal was more like 167).

He had superior speed and stamina though his power lacked at times.
