  1. I didn’t like Buakaw’s performance in his las two fights, against two chinese fighters. I don’ understand why in these fights he didn’t use his technique/skill and he just exchanges shot for shot.

  2. The Chinese fighter was a complicated opponent for Buakaw. Yi has a very good Muay Thai technics which really surprised Buakaw in the first round when he still was cold. The Second round was all Buakaw and the third one was almost even. However, Buakaw was a little bit better winning but for a really small margin

  3. I thought Buakaw lost that match; though, I didn’t like the way Tony Weeks kept on breaking up the fighters too quickly. He should have let them grapple for a little longer as it was a muay thai fight, not a kickboxing match. I think Buakaw would have shined a little more if that weren’t the case.

  4. Wow Buakaw is getting old, he can do a lot better? TBH it was a close fight and if yi long had won i would have not been surprised. Both have great fighting spirit and great power. So my last word is: REMATCH! :D

  5. Thai fighters are taught to fight at high level since they are children. This is what makes them great fighters. However a lot of their techniques are rather telegraphic. I think Yi Longs Kung fu training confused Buakaw (this is his second fight with Sanshou/Kung fu and in both he has had problems). Both fighters did enough to win, I would have scored it a draw, If I had to pick one, I though that Yi long did better. Clearly if Kung fu fighters train at the same intensity and realistic as Thai fighters, they would shine more often. This was a great day for both Martial arts styles
