    Muay Thai, the next big thing opposite MMA?

    MMA has made the Boxing Industry look pathetic both
    on and off the ring. :boxing: This killing machine grossly made
    huge amounts of money taking the evangelical approach
    over the last 10 years. Well, what are your thoughts on
    Muay Thai Rising up to the MMA level ? MMA is comprised
    mostly of Muay Thai/Kickboxing techniques, so Muay Thai
    should be as popular if not more known worldwide right ?
    With Muay thai fights illustrating some of the most deadliest
    skills, people may point their eyes and money, to what gives
    them the most entertainment.
    Would love to hear your thoughts on this...
    Muay Thai Rocks !!

    Like boxing though, Muay Thai is a one dimensional sport ( not as much AS boxing mind you because you have kicks and knees ), where as in MMA you have a whole smorgasbord of fighters, styles, techniques, etc that keeps it ahead of the competition.

    Hard to say, but my guess would be that for the USA it will not be the next big thing. If kickboxing didn't catch on after all these years of trying, then I don't see this doing well either. K-1 had a TV deal (kinda) and that didn't take off. Granted, their marketing was half-hearted at best. Now the WCL is the closest thing to MT/kickboxing the US has on TV and it only has a nitch audience. I don't think the average American would care to differentiate between the WCL and what MT has to offer, except cool shorts.

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

    We would have to have a lot of Muay Thai PHDs before that would ever happen...

    Muay Thai?

    Muay Thai... Maybe. Probably San Shou since Cung Le is shining right now.

    I am sure you all have seen the Cung Le and Frank Shamrock fight right? Frank got his booty kicked.

    you ever see a muay thai fight from thailand? its boring as **** sometimes because all the fighters have superior conditioning, motivation(all of them all dirt poor) and toughness. once in a while you'll see a fighter get killed by a elbow, elbows are only allowed in thailand even then they want it to be used after the 4th round. i doubt it will ever be a success here in the us
