What exactly happened to Buakaw?

It's obvious he hasn't been fighting nearly as well as he used to, does anyone know why? Back in high school he was my favorite K-1 fighter, but he's been disappointing me for a while now. What happened?

More than anything I think its just the accumulated effects of having so many fights. Muay Thai is brutal and those guys all fight some freaking wars. His body has taken some beatings in the past and its starting to affect him now.

He just hasn't been the same since the Masato loss. After that he got KO'd by Sato in an awkward fight, and went onto lose to Kraus.

I'd say he's just probably spent and should refresh himself and get fired up again.

He did get dicked over in the Kraus fight though.

I agree with both BJ and Plazz, Buakaw just needs to get re-focused which reading his interview about fighting Dida it seems he has.

218 fights at only 26 will do that to ya though.

Yeah that is an assload of fights he's been through. I do hope he finds that edge again, he was so much fun to watch a couple years ago.
