Saenchai @saenchaithailand is the greatest pound for pound striker in this era. Up until recently, only a very small part of the western world recognized this. You can thank Joe Rogan and Conor McGregor for this change, but he’s still not been given the recognition he deserves.
There are levels to Muay Thai, and Saenchai is at the very top. He’s beaten everyone there is to beat, and has often given up 10-30+ pounds against opponents. Right now, he’s riding a 45 fight win streak and approaching 40 years old, while still taking on some of the best western Muay Thai fighters today. His record against western Muay Thai fighters is ~ 140-1.
You may think someone like Saenchai has been paid handsomely for his efforts and greatness. But the truth is, even the purse of a top Muay Thai fighter is much lower than the average UFC fighter, and that’s not even considering sponsorships. Saenchai is 1 in a billion, imagine a brilliant boxer like Vasyl Lomachenko or your pound for pound great in MMA living an ordinary life style. Yup, that’s the life of a great Muay Thai fighter.
Hopefully this will change one day. There are major players starting to pave the way now, and it’s a dream of mine to contribute to this quest, but there’s a long way to go. In the mean time, you can help a bit and support Saenchai by checking out his “Championship Secrets” course, which is on discount during Thanksgiving week.
