the fight between Dale Apollo Cook and Kiatsongrit changed everyone's view about American kickboxing

it did not work compared to Muay Thai

RE: Joe Lewis showing some reflection in the Lessons of Sifu Lee!
I would imagine that in the above video example 'experience' was the most important element. Like the Brazilians in the early years of UFC, the Thais had been doing it longer.

now we see techniques working that did not work before. With experience comes confidence and a relaxed fighting character which allows one to use his techniques that worked when sparring at the club.

we can contemplate this in the evolution of a street-fighter. 1st fight = a nervous mess, no technique. A seasoned street-fighter = relaxed and creative character. If Street Fighting had belts then a blue-belt StreetFighter is probably = to a Red Belt BJJ Tongue

RE: Joe Lewis showing some reflection in the Lessons of Sifu Lee!
the Benny Western Kickboxing style spinning kick observed here was effectively brutal!

and some member commentary(not sure of its historic accuracy):


"This fight was epic... for more reasons than it was the first time a westerner fought a Thai kickboxer... half the audience was Thai the other half was Latino and after the fight they all got into it... there was chaos everywhere... Chuck Norris was there with his wife supporting his friend Benny and when the fighting broke out he was trying to peacefully get his wife out of harms way and someone threw a wild punch that hit her... Norris beat a path through the audience to get her out, taking out anyone who got in his way...
This video only shows a little of the fight... Benny kicked some ass himself and this fight was argued for years after it was over as to who really won... he did have trouble adapting to the Thai's style but caught on quick.. he used his front snap kick to counter the Thai's leg kicks and did the same with his knees.. he even threw some elbow counters... I didn't get to go to the fight because it sold out so fast, but I have seen the entire fight on 8mm and saw the interviews afterwards with Benny as well as read them in Black Belt magazine"-----

RE: Joe Lewis showing some reflection in the Lessons of Sifu Lee!
in the above video there are two fights. The first fight features Benny vs. what seems to be Japanese(MuayThai style)? The brutal spinning kick is between 1:40/1:45 minutes mark I believe

was Dale "Apollo" Cook even in the same league as Joe Lewis, Superfoot Wallace, or 'the Jet' Urquidez?

so in the Urquidez video we can observe the impact of experience on evolution. If the fight against the Thai(?) was the first fight and the Japanese the second fight(feature 1st on the video) then we observe how Urquidez became more familiar and relaxed allowing him to employ his powerful techniques.
