Buakaw Training Jiu jitsu – Could Buakaw be MMA bound ?

buakaw mma fight

As is now well documented and known – Buakaw has had and is still having on-going issues with his muay thai / K-1 fighting career.

Contractual issues with Por Pramuk gym, and trying to become an independent fighter under his own Banchamek name as opposed to Por Pramuk (who he has been with since his first k-1 appearance).

Recently Buakaw has trained some BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu)

Adam Kayoom of Q23/ATT Bangkok was lucky enough to play host to Buakaw’s visit to his academy.

Seeing Buakaw in a Gi is a strange yet exciting sight.

I know this is FAR from an MMA career…. but one has to get thinking……

Would a possible move to fighting MMA be a way to continue a fight career but not have to worry about the Por Pramuk contractual obligations ?

With so much having gone on with K-1 (the fall the rise the fall and the rise again) and the seemingly insecurity the recent Kickboxing scene.

Would Buakaw be smart in really focusing on making a move to a potentially lucrative MMA career?

K-1 fighters have often shown they can adapt there game to MMA (Overeem, Kharitonov, Pat Barry, Cro Cop, Hunt etc).

I could only imagine if Buakaw took to Jiu jitsu and wrestling for say….. 4/6 months – that he would be no world champion, but would deff. be able to fight some really solid MMA fights.

Lets take this wild fantasy a step further…. imagine a One FC signing for Buakaw and him being able to fight in his ‘region’ with the support of Thais, Singaporeans, Malaysians, Philippine and the surrounding countries. Yodsanan Sityodtong has made the move to MMA – could you imagine a Thai Vs Thai MMA fight – between a boxing world champion and a K-1 world champion ?!

I’m not sure about you guys, but this is an exciting thought for us here at Fight Sport Asia

    I really hope he doesnt transition to mma, i don’t want to see this legend get his name ruined by douchebag wrestlers who will just lay and pray him.

      Nolacola, I actually agree with you. I’d rather just see him continue his run against international Muay Thai competition, and finally retire as befits a legend.

    9999 The modest details, these kinds of as fabric bows or embroidery make it possible for them to offer a certain evaluate of panache on the most normal almost every outfit. We ended up like “ok, you can easily marry Harry!” Might possibly she in the future be Prince Harry’sthen? “Nah! No!”.
