What kind of idiot tries to battle a TKD fighter in a long distance?!?!? TKD kicks are designed to fight from medium and long distances. The TKD guy was more intelligent then the other fighter, so he got the victory.  Well done.

Why is everyone bitching about a mai Tai fighter losing? Sorry to say but kickwise TKD is superior...even Bruce Lee chose TKD kickstyle over Mai Tai...Whats really sad is that this is WTF style meaning hes not allowed to punch to the head. Just imagine if he was lol.

Guys relax. The thai fighter wasnt very smart. The fact that he didnt keep his hands up. He shouldve expected snappy high kicks. He underestimated the enemy. Then lost. Thats how every fight goes. The smarter fighter wins. There is no dominant martial art. There is only the much more dominant fighter

WTF where are the sparring gloves? How is the MT fighter able to throw head punches if he's going to break his hand? If they wanna sparr they should get proper sparring gear, this isn't a street fight. - wtf is with that MT guard, some yankee stance derived from youtube tutorials? KEEP YOUR HANDS UP. - No hip rotation with the "kicks" @ 0:10, instead of kicking how about grabbing him in a clinch and throwing a few knees to his ribs. - MT fighters don't hop around unless they want to mess up their centre of balance.

wannabe muay thai "fighter".. dude didnt have his hands up properly and beside from that lame low kick attempt looked nothingl ike a muay thai fighter. his footwork wasnt muay thai, not a single proper teep attempt. all he had to do was put his hands up and walk the tkd guy into a corner and the fight wouldve been over. no space = death to tkd fighter. dont get me wrong some tkd is cool (ITF, that is), but seriously?!

+Levon Enfiajyan  sad thing is though that even those trannies would kick a tkd guys ass.  there was actually a really great muay thai fighter once who was a transsexual. they made a movie about him. I forgot what it was called.

This Omari Boyd one of the best Muay Thai / kick boxers in the world. I've been on Glory and all the top events. First time commenting on anything on yt but growing up doing karate and tkd, a top Muay Thai guy and a top tkd guy...... Muay Thai wins..... Depending on the rules.....tkd rules are weak!

+Tassya Stevens @ the :10 mark you can obviously tell there is no clinch/thai sweep allowed since the ref tried to separate the fighters and reset the match. TKD rules. Whatever the case, rules hindered the match to its full potential.

yes he did.. BUT  why did the kick to the face happen ?  well..  the " thai" fighter  did not keep his guard high..   he was slopy. but alltogether,  it was a well  placed kick bythe  tKD guy.. ill give him that :)

Why the fuck is the 'MT' guy trying to run charge in with a teep. That shit is asking to get KO'ed. Sweet kick from the TKD guy though. Well timed. But that's the least you'd expect when you get a good TKD to fight a shitty MT fighter. More idiocy in the comments here. This is nothing new. It's literally a matter of a smart fighter vs idiot.

Another nonsense series of comments on who is better or who is worse. Firstly you can't judge how good either proponent is in 30 secs. The 'Thai' fighter was unlucky. If he know anything about TKD he would see that this man was waiting to unload that spinning back kick - if he had only blocked it, or ducked it he would perhaps have been ready to take him out. The TKD guy played it smart - don't engage in clinches or a toe to toe - WTF do not have the tools to do this, nor are they trained as the ITF fighters are to fight in kickboxing competitions. WTF is all about the Olympics and that's what they do best. Running the man down with a front teep...again, it's down to experience - hopefully, he learnt his lesson and fought to win another day. Only three guys on here typing sense - you know who you are.

It's always the reverse back kick that wins it for TKD.  It's pretty easy to see coming, if you know what to look for.  Although, some fighters are fast enough where it doesn't really matter.  As soon as he switched his stance, the Muay Thai fighter should have started looking for it.  Personally, I never liked the idea of turning my back to my opponent (even for a fraction of a second).

What I saw was a TKD guy getting owned, he was about 2 seconds from getting his support leg destroyed, and then they broke it up and told him "no grabbing". They probably said no leg kicks either. In real life that could have ended the fight or immobilized the guy. Then he got in a lucky shot. Most of you TKD guys can't fight your way out of a wet paper bag. Try that crap again, same two guys, Thai rules. Your boy goes to the hospitol....but then you will never do it. PS, I have a Red belt in Tae Kwon Do, so I'm not a hater, just a realist.

And a BJJ\Judo guy would take down a pro MT only guy in about 5 seconds and proceed to brake his arms then choke him. I am not biased, trained MT before BJJ\Judo...
Report spam or abuse
I think the guy was Muay Thai for sure, but not that experienced. But what really got him was his emotion. I can see he was clearly frustrated and confused by the style of the TKD practitioner. The second roundhouse kick got him pissed and he set himself up by trying to imitate the movements of the TKD fighter. Had he simply stuck with what he learned and taken his time, he would have been safer and slowly but surely make his way in. It was intelligent TKD guy vs emotional Muay Thai.

muay thai is stronger and tkd is faster this kid didnt know that and rushed his opponent making him run into a kick but if he stayed back and tight guard and waited for a shot he could have won

I think people do that for every martial art though. And tkd is not the best martial art, kicks are strong but lacks punching skill and grappling. This is what I learnt from starting off with tkd and later got involved with boxing and wrestling right before I started high school. Every martial art out there has its strengths and weakness. Sorry if grammar is bad and if the paragraph is kinda all over the place and hard to understand

+Kaleb Wright Too many of our arts are actually watered down because the government doesn't like people to be able to wreck other people, we are supposed to be reliant on our police, however that can't always be done.  My karate has always held up to muay thai, but I haven't fought in a long time.     
Report spam or abuse
+Kaleb Wright & Aurumk1, I would like to tell you guys that both of you are wrong but I would also like to tell you two that both of you are right. I'm a Kyokushin/Shotokahn karate guy who does muay thai and since I've thrown Kyokushi/ TKD techniques so much on a bag I feel when I throw em in Muay Thai, I land them often but those techniques in an actual fight do not work when you throw them over and over again compared to a thai knee/jab/hook/round house/ etc. Karate/TKD techniques help SIGNIFICANTLY but throw those techniques more than your thai techniques they you waste "gas" and lose techniques and could end up getting KO'd in a REAL fight against a skilled fighter. I can't appreciate Martial Artists (not the art) that prey on fighters that have NO experience.

Text book spin kick!!! Best time to use this move is as a counter to your opponents kick as long as you are both in the same stance, if in opposite stance to opponent then a spinning sweep to the back leg as they kick works just aswell. Every martial artist should have a spin kick in their arsenal to counter a kick.

The Tkd athlete is at a much higher rank and experience compared to the so called "muay thai" fighter. It is obvious with the "muay thai" fighter he has no ring experience. With the sudden movements, and sporadic foot moves, he may just be a cocky guy who used his mouth more than logic. In that case, an experienced Muay Thai fighter would not have ran into such a back kick. Each martial art has it's own areas of expertise. For training TaeKwonDo for the last 16 years, there is not one "superior" martial art. But what can be gained, is training in several to become an excellent fighter with a deep and varied back ground. I know I can knock someone out if I have the distance, if i'm on the ground with a wrestler or BJJ i'm screwed. LOL

I agree raininbeast.  The TKD fighter, from his stance and facial expressions as well as those of the supposed Muay thai fighter said it all.  This TKD idiot, KNEW he was way more advanced but pushed anyway.  He is probably one of those idiot guys who Picks on younger more novice martial artists but would NEVER deal with AN MMA practitioner.

+Heki Kahni If you are aspiring to be a real martial artist you should know that avoiding injury and death while training martial arts is extremely important. Training on a hardwood floor not only means that you can get killed if you get knocked out and hit your head but that you will not be able to perform takedowns or knockdowns safley. TBH its likley to make your training less realistic not more.

For those who knock TKD as an effective tool in a "real fight"...pff..MMA stands for Mixed Martial Arts...meaning it is a mixture of every type of MARTIAL ART out there...including Taekwondo..So when you say Taekwondo is ineffective you are saying MMA is ineffective because they both go hand in hand..most of the top retired MMA greats like Bas Ruten started in TKD and added to what he already knew...he took alttle from everything and went with it....MMA.however  has been made out to be a boxing and wrestling roll on the floor ground pound there are rules which limit on what you can do in a cage..ring... ...thats not fighting....anybody can lay on somebody and punch the daylights out of him, when someone can stand vertical and fight and knock someone out with a punch or a kick without going to the ground ....that is a well trained fighter and not to be dealt with lightly....

Yeah. Look at MMA. It's been a story of style, technique and philosophy of fighting for the first 2 decades rather than the individual. Now it is more about the athlete because camps train similarly and there is less separation between 'style'.
