    The Mauy Thai fighter in that clip looks like an amateur. I don't know anything about Silat, so I'm not going to comment on that. Anyway, pointless thread is pointless.

    That's actually just a really bad MMA fight.

    Welcome to MAP. Kezamx please don't just post links to videos. We ask that all members posting videos include an explanation of what they show.

    Perhaps Kezamx needs a new "Vlogger" tag? :)

    Be that as it may, MAP doesn't endorse people just coming here to post links to videos and little else. If you'd like to stay and talk silat, you'll be welcome. If you're only going to use MAP as a place to display videos, we'll need to talk. Does that make sense?

    I do like seeing guys in MMA who come from backgrounds that are less common in that environment. I actually did an article a couple of years ago looking at less-common martial arts backgrounds, and Silat was one of them. Hopefully, with the expansion of MMA into SE Asia, we'll see more Silat practitioners in an MMA setting. I'd like to see how that plays out.

    That said, beating two guys doesn't make someone a "hreat" fighter. 2-0 in MMA is a good start, it's worthy of praise, but dude's not going to be mentioned in the same breath as Sakuraba, Couture, Fedor, etc.

    Does he ever fight anyone good? Or does he just fight beginners?

    1:35 he loses against anyone who has actually grappled.

    The problem is he was fighting a Thai boxer who wasn't even that good at Muay Thai - so yes he beat someone, but not someone of any level and not something by ANY stretch to call him a "great fighter" on

    Furthermore his win was actually from a 101 submission grappling move not Silat - so again it's nice to see different styles but this is not even close to being validation of anything other than the value of cross training

    But it's nice to see that he does pull out some Silat in a pressured environment without and it's clear he spars it.

    Although the title 'silat vs muay thai' perhaps is too political, I do like that decent videos of silat fighters are shown in here. We know that fighters like couture are more high level, but I find that a lame argument. This is a silat specific forum, so it's nice to see some good show of a silat fighter against a muay thai fighter.

    It's generous calling that guy a muay thai fighter.

    And finishing with BJJ...or wrestling if you are being generous.

    Silat may have influenced his strategy, but technically his success with was techniques found elsewhere in abundance

    I'll address this since I was the one that brought in Couture. The "argument" was that the guy in the video was "great", despite having all of a 2-0 record against sub-par competition, as made by the OP. I was pointing out the difference between such a fighter and a true "great" of the sport of MMA, since performance in MMA is also a relevant subject here. Performance in MMA is, in fact, the very reason for posting the video, is it not?

    Come on guys, anyone starts at a certain level, and that is not elite level. this video might as well (probably) be from a local mma event in asia. And only since the Muay Thai guy was being passive (his kicks weren't that bad, not good either) this video is 'fake', and useless? I saw some decent footwork of the silat guy.

    I thought there were some silat lovers/practitioners over here in this forum, but it appears otherwise. If you have some better videos, please post them so we have better quality material to discuss..
