All the fighters mentioned are good, but the greatest Muay thai fighters of all time considered by most who know their muay thai (especially in Thailand) is either the current Lumpini Champion "Saenchai sor Kingstar" whom often fights against opponents much bigger than him and still beats them all easily using technical style and traditional muay boran techniques.

And in the past there was Samart Payakaroon who is like the Muhamed Ali of Thailand, he also had a good international boxing record (most consider him to be the greatest).

And 3rd on my list is Jomhod Kiatdisak. He was a very aggressive fighter who ran things in the 90s, he even gave Rammon Dekker a Muay thai lesson chasing him around the ring for the whole fight. He carried fighting until he was 38, and lost to Pramuk, but I think things would prob be different had the fight been ten years earlier. fight.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_jFwgeL0xE

Over great fighters are Saekson janjira, Anuwat Kaewsamrit and current Lumpini welter weight champ, WBC champ and contender asia winner Yodsaenglai Fairtex

Dont forget about Erik, Kurt, and David sloan. Also the crazy ass Tong Po is no one to mess with. I would say the best would be David Sloan though followed by Kurt.
You dont win fights with the tip tap shit

On a serious note, the guy who played Eric "Dennis Alexio", was one of the best ISKA Kickboxers of all time.

Jomhod is an animal, i watched him fight Cyrus Washington in Phuket at the beginning of the year, here's a vid. Keep in mind Jomhod is 41 at this stage.


And a nice little Cyrus Washington highlight vid cos i love the way he uses his TKD in Muay Thai fights.

These guys are my top 5(in no particular order)
1. Badr Hari for obvious reasons
2. Jose Aldo for the gorgeous hematomas he gave Uriah Faber
3. Shogun.. he has the heart and vicious fighting style that muay thai is all about
4. Boajnsky/Cro cop/hunt/aerts/hoost - all pretty much the same
5. anderson silva - hw is a prodigy

This man should be included in the conversation.


I wish I could throw kicks like that.
First thing I saw was that axe kick...I was like that's ANDY HUG...RIP! He had wicked kicks...especially that spin kick he did tripping his opponents.

Since everyone has got good picks (Buakaw, Gokhan Seki) I'll go with Don "The Dragon" Wilson...lolz!

Oh did anybody mention Petrosyan! He has the MOST wicked counters, impregnable defense atm and timing.

Look at his technique and how crisp it is while hitting the Thai Pads! Shit makes me cringe...wish I hit like that...every shot is a KO.
