    In regards to that video, I dont think anyone is debating on who has better boxing skills between a boxer and a thai fighter. I think the general consensus was that muay thai is a more well rounded and complete fighting style simply because they allow the kicks, knees, elbows, and clinch fighting.

    Im going to assume that boxers are better at boxing- take a thai or MMA fighter into a boxing ring and a boxer is probably going to light him up, but when the boxer knows the other fighter has other options on his feet, such as a MMA or muay thai match, I think its going to dramtically change the striking battle

    It's like my Mexican teammate at work. When he orders the pad thai, it's never spicy enough. 'no, muy thai, por favor'
    I'm told that real Thai food has unthinkable levels of spiciness compared to what we get in these parts.

    Boxing existed long before the white men even thought of sailing to that big continent later named "america" and kill the indians. There are records of boxing matches being held in ancient Greece. Boxing as it is today though, with the rules and all, was invented by the English. So it should be "English boxing" much rather than American.

    True, and the headache I have now after last night is proof of that...

    I wrote all about my encounter with a tough boxer in this thread: http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...ewpost&t=46690

    You were told correct. I love spicy food, specially India, and I used to flaunt my love for thai spice... until one dreaded day. Good gawd!!!! There is a thai restaurant in South Miami that seems to have the real enchilada, or I should say, teh r34l red curry. I though my tongue turned to charcoal.

    I ended up taking on more water than food. I have not seen any real Indian or Mex dish yet that is so murderous. Bow to the "muy" thai curry bitches!!!

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
