    Yeah, and didn't K1 ban/gimp clinch knees as well? Surely there can be some kind of unified Sanda/MT ruleset that allows both clinch strikes and throws.

    I hope that ruleset turns out to be MMA. Which would lend even more reason for Thai fighters to start training grappling. Pro Muay Thai fighters would make awesome MMA fighters if they added takedown defense to their game at a minimum, or even better just added some grappling style to their training.

    They are catching on though. Fairtex Bang Plee now has a grappling instructor, BJJ brown belt Eric Gerber. And I know of at least one Muay Thai fighter, Rambaa Somdet, who has started competing in MMA. I know these are only isolated examples, but it's a start. China is still way ahead of Thailand in MMA, for sure.

    How about MT with all the standing grappling/wrestling restrictions removed or pro sanda with unlimited clinch time.

    That would be the best "MT vs Sanda" matchup IMO, since it allows the full range of MT and Sanda techniques, while not allowing anything else.

    It could be a good idea, but such a matchup would no longer be purely "Muay Thai vs Sanda". I mean GnP and triangle chokes aren't part of both arts.
