That’s what we like Muay Thai for!
Fans and experts would probably be less stunned if they took some time to browse through Hester’s previous fights. In August 2010 he stepped in the ring at Bangkok Fight Night 10 and did just the same. Hester’s rival dropped him to the mat as the footage starts, and if it was an MMA bout he could unleash ground and pound or try a submission. As everything above-said is illegal in Muay Thai, the guy in yellow trunks couldn’t elaborate his advantage which was crucial. Hester did not just got back on his feet – it’s clearly seen that his shots are more powerful and vicious. It took him only twenty seconds to return fire and drop his opponent. Fifteen seconds more – and knee to the head sends Hester’s rival to the mat again! Actually, the only intrigue since that moment was how long it will take Hester to put an end.
The answer came pretty soon. Hester noticed that his opponent was keeping his left hand way too low and landed a devastating superman elbow. It doesn’t matter how many times trainers tell to keep the guard high – there will always be someone who forgets it.
