      They've been good friends for decades - literally. They did this because of the money involved of, who is better - Buakaw obv. is but Saenchai is more liked by the public. It is good to see, but not surprising - as the end video briefly shows Buakaw went to the hospital to see Saenchai immediately after the fight.

      Saenchai's style relies on his timing and speed, and as over 45 guy, those go way faster than you'd like. Buakaw is tremendously technical, but his style doesn't need the speed and reaction time Saenchai's does. My hypothesis anyway.

    I think a lot of people are missing the reason why Buakaw overwhelmed Saenchai. Saenchai isn't used to people walking through his offense like that, and Buakaw took the fight where he was strongest with strategy and skill. They're both elite fighters, and while strength obviously does matter, that's not even the main factor here.
    In Jiu-jitsu, I'm able to give some of the higher belts problems because they're unfamiliar with some of the catch wrestling techniques I use, and my guard is really hard to pass. Other people are able to exploit my game by taking me where I'm not comfortable, even though I've trained longer than them. Personal style is a bigger factor than many realize. Everyone's got weaknesses, and even if you're incredibly well rounded, they can and will be exploited.

    • @prashugrashu
      @prashugrashu 6 หลายเดือนก่อน

      I think I understand what you are trying to say. If someone doesn't have that direct experience, though, this concept is hard to believe as it goes against what people are taught in the sense that x skills are greater than x-1 skills (replace skills with whatever grade/measurement you want). What you are saying is that x skills isn't always greater than x-1 skills, there are many other parameters in play which haven't been measured yet.

    • @willwailes9298
      @willwailes9298 6 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      @someguywholivesandbreathes4755 Not exactly. People with the exact same skill level can have different strengths and weaknesses. Someone less skilled than you can have strengths that exploit your weaknesses. Even that might be an oversimplification. Relationships differ from person to person. MMA has a lot of that. Israel Adesanya was a tough opponent for Alex Perreira, Perriera destroyed Sean Strickland easily, and Strickland destroyed Adesanya. All 3 are elite level athletes, but their styles are different, and their relationships with one another are drastically different.

    • @willwailes9298
      @willwailes9298 6 หลายเดือนก่อน +2

      @someguywholivesandbreathes4755 Different martial arts is a more extreme version of the same thing. A TKD guy is going to want to fight in kicking range, and a boxer is going to want to fight in punching range. If the TKD guy keeps him in kicking range, the boxer has lost his primary weapons. If the boxer keeps the TKD guy in punching range, the TKD guy has lost his primary weapons.
      Saenchai is well rounded, but a lot of his attacks are from that kicking range. Buakaw moved forward while defending Saenchai's attacks, and took Saenchai where he wasn't comfortable. Saenchai tried to adjust, but Buakaw just ate the shots and continued walking him down.

    It's anaemic, immature and "shallow" to say either is 'better' than the other.
    These are both Muay Thai legends and they are also good friends. There's no way either will fight
    all out in any competition. To have them spar with one another for a good look at all aspects
    of Muay Thai is already a treat in itself.

      K1 banned multiple knees in the clinch because of Buakaw (there's a video about it if you look for Buakaw rule change) and banned pulling the head down because of Overeem.

      Buakow uses muay mat
      Sanchai uses muay femur

      @@nicholasgreen339 technique... tricks... call it what you want... It's true. If someone is overwhelmingly strong and absurdly resilient (which is even more humbling to deal with), everything you pull out the bag as far as skill goes will seem so much less effective - because it is less effective. I think it's crazy some people are like Baukaw.

    Epic video, thank you LK ! Obviously impossible to choose a side in this case, they are both incredible fighters with each their way to express their mastery. Glad they won't fight each other again though, I prefer watching them having fun together, and I think Buakaw was a going a little too hard on Saenchai. Cheers

      @@bunmeng007 I don't think it was that competitive of a fight when both are over 40 years old and both have achieved incredible careers. I expected a kind of rough sparring, but I was definitely surprised when Buakaw landed the headkick. He even apologized for it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed watching them fight, but as I said they are friends and they are fighters, you never know when the fighter instinct is going to kick in, and what is going to happen when it does. Fighting each other was good, having fun together for years to come is better. My 2 cents anyway, totally subjective and you can disagree no problem.

      @@LawrenceKenshin Yes the first 2 were not real fights as they were enjoying clowning around and having fun. They were throwing telegraphed playful very wide punches and kicks not even close to full power. But the last fight was real, with I think you said some kind of gentleman's agreement not to knock the other guy out with a head punch. But some of the kicks maybe would have produced at least a knockdown if they had landed flush. Their competitive nature showed in the later rounds. Two great Legends, two great friends!

    Both of these two have amazing skills, perhaps saenchai slightly more so (at least more theatrical skills), but, the skills in combination with the physique and raw power of Buakaw is soo impressive.
    It feels like Saenchais words were to the Thai spectators and from his heart - as far as I understand the history, Buakaw could have been a GOAT at lumpinee but got screwed, or at the very least, the bad split with por pramuk removed his chances in Thailand.

    With my classic muay Thai style. The knee comes through the heel. The toes stand through the fist. The middle arch of the foot is counter to the hips and waist. Inside foot is hips. Outside foot is waist. Not ready for real sparring until achieving inside outside footwork is fast enough for running.

    I don't know much about muay thai, but as far as I hear, Saenchai is considered far more decorated, fighting up in weight just to find competition, etc. Whereas Buakaw is a kickboxing legend and star from what he did in K-1, and perhaps more famous globally for the exposure that granted him.
