Top Female Muay Thai Fighters and Fights - Full Fight Video Thread

Recommended Posts

Only a clip, but featuring Daoprasuk who for many years was considered the best female fighter in Thailand. 

Daoprasuk Sakchaichot Vs Jankrajang pralasarkam 

found this summation:

The main event was an all Thai affair and had the added attraction of 120,000 baht up for grabs for the winner from a bet between the two camps. Daoprasuk started the fight the more aggressive of the two, coming forward, looking to take the fight into the clinch. Jantgrajang looks to keep the fight on the outside and score with stylish roundkicks. Jantgrajang continues scoring well in round 2.Towards the end of the round Daoprasuk gets her in the clinch and locks her arms around Jantgrajang’swaist, Daoprasuk unleashes a big barrage of knees as Jantgrajang struggles to get out of her grip. Jantranjang manages to comeback with a few knees of her own only for Daoprasuk to spin her off balance to the canvas. Daoprasuk switched tactics in round 3 letting Jantgrajang bring the fight to her. Jantrajang now forced to come forward couldn’t find the range to land with her kicks and Daoprasuk pun-ished her with fast counter kicks. Jantgrajang was forced to push forward again in the final round, but Daoprasuk was too sharp, picking her off with kicks and then landing with another big bar-rage in the clinch. Daoprasuk winner on points.

I've posted this elsewhere, but adding it here. This is rare fight footage. Very little video of Erika Kamimura is around. Japan's Erika has been thought of as the best low-weight female Muay Thai fighter in the world until she retired about a year or more ago. She has unusual power for her size. Here she fights Loma Sitajou who is probably a weight class under her at the time. Erika held the 105 lb WPMF title, Loma easily fought at 100 lbs.

I've fought and lost to Loma twice and she is very difficult to deal with in the clinch, the best clinch fighter I've faced near my weight, by far. In this fight it's basically her clinch vs. Erika's power combinations. Loma is currently on the Thai National team.

Scratch that, I did find a video!

 

What a find that is! Can't wait watch it. Sylvie's faced Loma twice and she's been a real puzzle, very underrated as a fighter. Maybe the best 45 kg fighter in Thailand.

[edit: what dominance. Shows that you can can be a complete, explosive kickboxer, but if you don't understand clinch at all in Muay Thai you stand very little chance. Really interesting fight.]

Ya, the announcer's comment that its as if she is in their with Ronda Rousey is pretty accurate. She was throwing that girl around at will.

 

I skipped thru the whole video checking every few minutes to see if I could find the Lomanee fight but I didnt see it. Hopefully it shows up somewhere on the internet.

Any plans to rematch Loma or Lomanee? The Lomanee fight was so long ago and you have improved so much, I think you would take her this time around.

 

I would LOVE to fight either of them again, multiple times. I don't think I'll fight Lommanee again. I asked her in private message about fighting again and she seemed like she didn't really want to, and I've asked Yokkao about it, but they don't seem interested - she's not fought for them since my fight with her. The only way it would happen probably is if a large sidebet was raised, and even then probably not. I don't have the money so it would take outside interest, and she doesn't fight a lot, she would have to be convinced. I am a very different fighter than when I fought her. At the time I didn't even know how to clinch or guard. Not saying she wouldn't be difficult. She's one of the best fighters in the world at a weight class two above mine, but it would be a wonderful challenge.

Loma though is a real possibility. My head trainer knows how much I want to fight her, and is even asking Max Muay Thai if they would take the fight this month. Outside Max though, again it comes down to sidebets. I think she would fight me if there was substantial money involved.

I've fought Thanonchanok (blue) twice, the last time it was really, really close, and I really want to fight her again. Each of these fighters are a few weight classes above me, but they are quality I'm aiming at. I've been trying to book a fight with Hongkaw (red) and almost had one, but it was rained out in Hua Hin. Lots of Thai posturing and attitude in this fight, which is its own kind of battle. While Thanonchanok is not my style of fighting, and I can't believe she hasn't yet learned how to clinch, she is someone I aspire to in that when you take photos of her fighting she is an absolute poster of technique and ease. I'm a Thanonchanok fan.

Thanonchanok held the WPMF 49 kg title for more than 2 years.

The Ughi fight is very difficult to watch. Not because of the beat down, but the uncomfortable stance and guard. I tried to rewatch that fight the other night.

There are some amazing things about that fight, one of them being that despite being completely outclassed in the ring Chantal actually has a moment when she could have finished Jorina, she just wasn't committed to her clinch. She very nearly had a knee to Jorina's head. I'm not sure why she didn't just try to clinch up Jorina, continually. She actually may have won that fight because Jorina didn't seem to know how to clinch, and clinch is Chantal's one dependable attack. Maybe it was that Santai tried to change her fight style in training camp (a guess)? It's a mystery.

Lommanee vs Cocopuff 

Round 1:

 

Round 2: 

 

Round 3:

 

Cocopuff's team felt that she won this fight, but when I watched it Lommanee shows why she is an expert at controlling the outcome of a fight. Makes for a great rematch (scheduled for Feb 21 - 2016).

Lommanee I rank as the 2nd best fighter 48 kg and under in the world.

Fani Peloumpi vs Zaza Sor. Aree - One Round Knockout Tournament, March 21 2016

SPOILER: I thought this fight was an amazing performance by Fani. Zaza tried to draw her into her retreat and score game and Fani perfectly played it with control of distance. She also won all the clinch positions against Zaza who has a reputation in clinch, and even in the end, after the 8 count, Fani refused to dance off and stayed aggressive when she didn't have to, risking a cut which could have changed the fight.

    • Recently, Sak Yant has been referred to as “Muay Thai Tattoo.”  Actually, because of its protective and blessed meanings, it was often associated with warriors, combatants, and anyone looking for its protective powers.   But why are so few Thai fighters getting Sak Yant in comparison to their Western Nak Muay counterparts?  Is it not derived from the ancient practice as depicted in movies involving ancient Thai warriors?  In order to understand this in the context of modern Thai culture, you have to separate the “Sak" from the “Yant."  Sak means tattoo.  Yant is the actual blessed protective scripture.  Yant could actually be inscribed on surfaces other than skin.  In Theravada Buddhism, which in Thai culture is actually mixed with older indigenous beliefs, the Yant is often placed on amulets and cloth.  It has always been in existence, and Thai fighters are often wearing amulets with Yant inscribed somewhere on them.  Its connection with the ancient warriors was transferred from skin to another media, not abandoned. Yant can even be on Buddha amulets.  In contrast, Sak is very intertwined with societal norms and to a large extent fashion.  In the modern era, Sak or tattoo only became mainstream recently.  Prior to this it was associated with gangsters and the less desirable elements of society.  Even in the United States, establishments like West Point only recently allowed its cadets to have tattoos because military officers could not have tattoos while lower-ranked enlisted soldiers were allowed to.  I myself have a lot of tattoos (including Sak Yant) and my Thai mom, when she was alive, never did like them.  She often told me that since I have an advanced degree, I should not get tattoos.  This was the society that she grew up in.   So it’s easy to understand why even when Golden Era fighters got Sak Yant on rare occasions, it was minimal in contrast to the full upper torso.  Many Muay Thai boxers like others in society did not promote deviation from social norms.  Fast forward to now, and tattoos are ubiquitous and no longer tantamount to stigma. Yet, the other variable influencing choice of Sak is fashion.  Unless you’re a complete follower of the practice as can be observed at the annual Sak Yant Tattoo Festival, many Thais (fighters or not) are often influenced by foreign fashion.  So once tattoos were more accepted, the choice was still primarily other foreign styles as opposed to traditional Thai.  Then a global Western star, Angelina Jolie, made huge headlines with her Sak Yant in Thailand.  Suddenly Thai celebrities were in line getting the Thai traditional tattoo in the same “Ha-Taew” fashion as the Western star.  Ajarn Noo Kanpai who tattooed Angelina became highly sought "overnight."  In contrast, it was increasingly more fashionable, exotic and/or a spiritual connection for foreign Nak Muays to adopt the traditional protective tattoos likes the ancient Thai warriors.  Many have said it gave them more connection to Muay Thai.  As it becomes more and more common among Western Nak Muays, perhaps the Thai fighters will come back around and have the Yant back on their skin, as can be seen on Sudsakorn and Saiyok.  In short, the Yant never left the lineage (being on cloth, amulet, etc.), but the Sak did… until maybe now.  If you're not interested in the Yant portion of it, just get a Sak of something meaningful to you.
    • Malaria map above. It's only really present in border areas, which are all mountainous and sparsely populated (I think).  So, no you'll almost certainly not need to take antimalarials. Dengue is transmitted by a different species of mosquito to ones that carry malaria. They bite during the day and dengue can be caught in urban areas.  If you're worried about it, just cover up and use repellent.    
    • Since a 10 month, Im living consistently  on a LCHF diet. A relatively liberal one allowing me up to 50g carbs a day, still keeping ketose.  And I do experimentate quite friskly with resistant starch.  Yet  I have no difficulty to remain in ketose,   Thus, as far as I know, unbroken ketose during all these months.    I suppose my two good hours of exercise almost every day helps me.   A month ago I did bought a bottle of Trocadero Zero;  a sort of fruity Coke soda,  sweetened with aspartam and acesulfam-K.  But no carbs.    I drank 3 small glasses, less than half a liter. Next morning, my scale was a half kilogramme up (1 pound).  Next evening the scale showed additional two pounds more!  Broken scale??  But I did remembered, the other time I did bought Trocadero Zero,  I too gained a pound...  So it was no sheer coincidence!   Whattsa matter?  A bad batch containing sugar?  Or a batch where they put on wrong label?? And it was really regular Trocadero with sugar?   Both bottles were bought in my local shop. I mailed to "my brother in LCHF";  really my son living in another city, whom too is on LCHF...  He told me; the batch was prob OK, but several "Gurus" had reported some people do react on aspartam + Acesulfam-K... They get blood sugar spikes...  And may add a pound or two for a couple of days...   OK.  I leave the Trocadero to my wife whom is holding a common low carb diet, but no keto.  And proceed with my usual keto diet.... Three days later I got dizzy a couple of days.  Ie exact the symptom I got when my ketosis began once upon a time... Ergo:  Warning for artificially sweeteners!   Esp Aspartam + Acesulfam-K, but possibly also others artificial sweeteners. This  barely 500 ml  of sweetened soda threw me out of ketosis!!!    If I did drank  500 ml of the regular sugar Trocadero or Coke, it would hardly throw me out of ketosis!   Lessons?   1.  Do avoid artificial sweeteners*.  They may be OK for people whom just want to avoid sugar for diet reasons to spare on the calories,  but they is no good  for us ketosians! IF you really are dying for a sweetened soda, its probably less bad to drink the regular thing...  Ie this soda sweetened by sugar...     2.   Do not try to be sneaky, and drink juices sweetened with artificial sweeteners*...  Juice may be healthy, but this is a bad compromise. Its probably much better if you eat a little of real fruit... A half apple?   You will get all the vitamines while they are still fresh, and also the healthy pulp and fibers, and other parts in fruit - but not always present in premade juice...  You must of course beware the usual 50g carb limit.    Observe fibers is free quota; they dont need to count in the carbos, as they pass directly through the intestines.     *Remark:  There are some OK sweeteners.  Stevia is wellknown to be OK, possibly even healthy.  Monk fruit, and some others are OK too.  The brand of Nicks  is making good sweeteners for consuments to cook on.  Sweets and even ice-cream... There are surely others good producents.  But unless you know for sure a sweetener is OK, do avoid it.

    • Hey dude, Not sure how to answer to be honest. On clean/hygiene issues, kinda depends what you’re comparing it to? Or what your standard for clean is. If memory serves, there are 2 or 3 toilet & shower rooms, and yeah they flush, and yeah there are doors. But actually, nobody uses them. Basically, past those 3 doors you walk on a little and there’s this outdoor porch type area. In the middle you got a giant concrete, square tank type thing, height of your belt, about 6 feet wide & 6 long. Filled to the brim with cold water and loads of those small plastic buckets floating on top. After training you all go out back and stand around that square tank, pick up a bucket, fill it, lift it, and throw it all over yourself a bunch of times. I’m not kidding about any of this, and after training when you feel dead - especially in that heat - the bucket shower feels tremendous. Like, genuinely, a million times better than the traditional shower. Loved it. As for infections etc… dude you’re gonna catch some shit eventually, it's basically inevitable. Almost consider it the cost of doing business. Not to get too much into this, but real quick – never got corona, but got sick with something else and needed surgery. Was fucked up for ages afterwards, and still not yet back to where I was before. But that wasn’t the gym’s fault at all, and not from a hygiene problem.   
    • I lived 3 years in areas with lots of malaria (South Central Africa) 2 years in Bangkok, Thailand. Now Myanmar since 1 plus year. I've never taken any medication and been lucky. But depends on where you are and the kind of malaria being spread. Dengue seems common though, I know several people who had it (urban and rural areas). So measures against mosquito bites are always a good advice. From someone who have had some bad luck with some nasty parasites, deworming pill might be a good option. I take one every 6-month.  .
    • I don't know much about the bathrooms, maybe someone can add to that. But this hour long video shows the gym and training, filmed since this thread was started:
