Leo Monteiro vs Sittichai Sitsongpeenong (video)


Here is a fight from the recent Toyota 8 man tournament in the 67 kilo division. 

You may recognize Leo from the MPL's first event. The Brazillian fighting out of Thailand has a number of titles, including the Chaweng stadium championship from Samui, as well as the Z1 WMC Malaysia tournament title. 

Sittichai is someone I've posted about a lot. This slick southpaw is a Lumpinee and Rajadamnern ranked fighter who consistently performs against the best both in Thailand and abroad. 


While both are top guys, the winner of this bout becomes obvious through accuracy, consistency and power. To me, these are the three things that allowed the winner to pull ahead.

It's important to note that I'm not speaking of sheer activity or even aggression. When I say consistency, I refer to the pace of the strikes, in addition to their accuracy and power. You might call it tactical or technical aggression.
