Take lek, for example, which means small in Thai . Many fighters who are small in stature have the word lek in their fight names, such as #1-ranked flyweight contender “The Kicking Machine” Superlek Kiatmoo9. When he first started Muay Thai, he was small but strong, so the owner of Kiatmoo9 named him Superlek.
Regardless how this fight goes, I don’t think Rodtang is going to have a very long career. Dude takes way too many clean shots. That shit is going to cut a few years off of his career.
I would agree but the only thing thats going to stop him is bodily injuries. These thai genetically are not prone to get CTE.
Google CTE and genetics/epigenetics
They also spar VERY lightly
Agree with you that his style will take years off his career, but to be fair Rodtang has already had over 300 fights.
Superlek. Liam Harrison agrees.
Holy shit, one more week!!!
I havent looked, but is this an early fight? I will be at BKFC event on the 22nd. Id hate to miss this one.
Will be continental Asia prime time I imagine
Yeah, it seems like that’s common for most of these Thai’s. Let’s just say he’s likely not going to have the career longevity of a Nong-O, Saenchai, or Superlek. And while the same could be said for many other fighters, I just think his career in particular will be cut significantly shorter as a result of letting everyone tee off on him. It’s gonna be an ugly loss one of these days and the beginning of the end.
Im more excited for this then the shitty JBJ vs old man Stipe fight
Me? No. Watch those dude spar, its like play fighting
