Must be one of the worst muaythai fighters I have ever seen.... Flashy moves even though they seemed to lack power...
I put the STOMP on kids!!

Did the thai guy actually know he can fight back.
Most of those kicks could be avoided with a single jab. The guy didnt use thai's advantage, to go berserk: catch the head and knee, leg kicks, push kicks, trapping him in a corner and smashing his face.
The thai guy looks like a deer in headlights, real agraid and he freeses up

yeah I agree, it looks wierd. On the other hand, it's a HL where they only show one guy's hits.

Nice kicks, and although the Thai fighter went to the ground, he never looked dazed... at least not in my opinion.

As Gurre said, it's just a highlight... for all we know those could have been the only strikes the TKD guy managed to land, heh.

The thai fighter did look a little nervous, which is more than likely why he didn't show a lot of agression... I mean, what type of normally composed thai fighter wouldn't attempt to throw a couple of knees to their opponent when tied up?

from the clip there isnt a lot of evidence tht the guy was a Thai boxer after all anyone can put a pair of shorts on. This was also on a TKD website so maybe it is a bit one sided.

wow, yeah that's how it should be done. The TKD guy has no defence for the legkicks, and he looks scared. But this time the TKD guy didn't do much...

WTF that guy isn't a thai boxer he must be a tkd guy dressed as a thai boxer. That fight was fixed to show the superiority of the TKD. Βulshit. He didn't even know how to punch or to cover his face.


Do you remember then Genki KTFO that tkd olympic gold medalist with a spinning backfist in K1????? And Genki is even top kick boxer....imagine what guy like Zambidis can do to a TKD athlete.

Dude, that was King's cup. Punches to the face aren't allowed.

And yes he was a thai boxer because they match styles like that.
