Muay Thai Legend Sends Warning Message To Conor McGregor

One of the greatest Muay Thai fighters to ever live has just called out Conor McGregor, this could be insane!

Muay Thai great Saenchai is interested in making a move to MMA. Saenchai is known for his incredible leg dexterity and flashy technique. Having fought in over 300 fights including bare knuckle bouts and single-night tournaments, the Thai legend has won championship titles in 6 different weight classes. He recently uploaded a video to his Facebook account in which he discussed a move to MMA competition and critiqued UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.

“His punches are hard and accurate, his kicks are not that great.” Said Saenchai of the Irishman. “If he were to fight a real Muay Thai fighter, then he would have no chance of winning. He can’t beat ‘Thai’ Muay Thai.”

When asked how McGregor would fare against him, Saenchai quickly responded: “Well, bring it on, I would win. I would definitely win.”

Saenchai expressed the desire for a new challenge outside of Muay Thai, and seems destined to compete in MMA. He has received an invitation to train with GSP at Tristar gym in Canada. Tristar head coach Firas Zahabi confirmed that he has been in contact with Saenchai and will host the Muay Thai legend in the future.

Another Muay Thai Superstar has been mentioned for potential MMA bout in the past. Buakaw Banchamek spent time training jiu jitsu, judo and wrestling during a short retirement in 2012 before returning to the Muay Thai ring 5 months later.

The 2-time K1 Max champion has been photographed training jiu jitsu again recently, leading to speculation that he will be making a move to MMA in the near future. After winning his most recent fight in China, Buakaw accepted a challenge to fight Yi Long in a mixed martial arts fight. A date has not been determined. Buakaw defeated Yi Long by decision in a kickboxing match this past August.
