Namkabuan vs Nuanthoranee yet again (video)



Another technical fight between two legends. I'm amazed at how many different fights I've found of these two against each other.

As usual, they have an all out war

Buakaw Por. Pramuk vs. Jordan Tai ~ K-1 WORLD MAX 2004



I believe is this Buakaw's K-1 debut. Back then, the rules on clinching were not so strict and you could deliver more than one knee per grab.

He's fighting Jordan Tai, from the famous K-1 fighter Ray Sefo's team.

You can just tell by the commentator that no one has ever heard of Buakaw at this point

K-1 World Max 2010: Buakaw out...Pajonsuk and Sagadpet in!

Looks like Buakaw is officially off the K-1 circuit this year.

In his place, two other Thais have taken up the K-1 gloves.



I have posted about Pajonsuk before. He's no stranger to K-1 style rules, having fought on the European "It's showtime" promotions.



He's had mixed success, but would still make a great fit for the K-1 scene. He trains out of Super Pro in Samui, where he was part of a reality TV show (Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYubY_NeieU)


Sagadpet, like Buakaw, has been strictly full Thai rules prior to being thrown into K-1. He's a former Lumpini, Rajadamnern and Mitsunishi 8 tournament champion. It'll be interesting to see how he deals with the rule set.



Fun fact: Buakaw and Sagadpet have actually met in the ring before (Watch: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xfvuk_buakaw-vs-sakadpetch-sor-sakunpan_sport). He trains out of Ingram Gym.

Mymuaythai.com has more information on Sagatpet: http://www.mymuaythai.com/archives/sagatpetch-goes-to-max/#more-3331

From the first round of the "Thai Fight" reality show/tournament

VS

Watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IePAuMurHbg

Petchmongkong is a skilled Thai who defeated Saenchai in the past. He is one of the lightest fighters in the "Thai Fight" tournament (he normally fights no higher than 130-135, while the tournament features some fighters in the next weight class up)
