I think you mean Phil Petit from Manitoba, CA, the IKF North American Muay Thai champion in his weight class (i.e. not a tomato can). I'm not sure if you realize this, but san shou/san da and muay thai fighters crossover between the two sports fairly frequently.Quote:

-- Scott Sheeley, who was part of the US National San Shou Kickboxing Team in 1997, fought to the semi-finals in the worlds, finishing his last fight with a broken arm. His current pro record is 30-9 (2 of those losses are to Le).
-- Mike Altman, IKF Cruiserweight World Champion in San Shou
-- Nashun Gerile (Mongolian King), all-China San Da champion.
-- Laimon M. Keita, an international Shidokan Karate champion. He beat him by decision under san shou rules in 2000, and also submitted him with a heel hook at Le's first pro fight in '98, a Shidokan match (the first time Le had fought under those rules).
The guy's a good fighter, sorry if that bothers you for some reason.
