I know there are a few muay thai fans on here, doubt any casual fans have heard of Saenchai but he is the king of muay thai. P4P #1, easily the fighter of our generation. One of the greatest of all time etc.
He has come out and will be switching to MMA, training at Tristar with GSP and co, and he wants to fight McGregor.
Does anyone think he can make it in MMA? His striking would be second to none, his clinch work is out of this world, ragdolls guys much bigger than him, so I feel he would pick up enough of the ground game to be able to defend himself (much like McGregor I guess), but I am at best a casual UFC fan and have never grappled, so will happily admit I don’t know what I am talking about.
