    I thought Mark Glover's Thai was fucking incredible against One-Two Pastou.

    Indeed my serious answer would second razor rob. His muay thai is fantastic. Few years back, might have said yves edwards. Love that fella.

    What is 'True Muay Thai'?

    Just because the Dutch tend to use there hands more doesnt make it a different style.
    Pacqiaou(?) and Mayweather have completely different styles but both are boxers.
    BJJ White belt, 2 stripes.

    General badmotherfucker.

    dutch style kickboxing was as much Kyokushin karate mixed with boxing as it was muay thai, or so i am told. traditionally muay thai dosnt have alot of punchs at all apart from streight punchs and swings and if you watch some of the old fights its just two guys standing in the middle of the ring trading blows until one drops. Today there alot closer as thay have adapted to each other.

    jon jones has phil nurses style through and through....put him in a pair of thai shorts and hes a lanky version of phil !

    best thai though (non ufc) ramba m16 somdet....even in his MMA he throughs killer bodykicks....
    He rarely throws the power roundhouse though usually just the left kick.

    If your going to go with people like that then malaipet should be up there although I think he's mainly cross trained in groundfighting not TDD.

    Josh thomson is probably not the chief MT guy in mma but he used lots of nice strikes in his first fight with gilbert melendez that you rarely see like front kicks to the body and head.

    I kind of agree this can get nauseatingly semantic.

    I'd say if you look at the way yod hits the pads at 15 seconds in you can see he doesn't focus on keeping a tight boxing guard or anything like that just focuses on thumping the pads as hard as he physically can;

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUAUoHtsc48

    If he had cross-trained boxing like many K-1 fighters and buakaw did for max then returning his hand to his face and keeping a tight boxing guard might be higher on his list of priorities.

    The results speak for themselves because yod knocks a lot of guys out with his hands.

    Manhoefs leg kicks in that fight immediately made me want to take Muay Thai seriously.
