    I think the only time we've seen high profile international Thai's fight each other was Sittichai vs Superbon. Only other fight I can think is Yod vs Khem but the fight took place in Thailand. In recent times at least.

    Not saying you're wrong, but could you explain? Would both of them demand too much money to fight the other because of the risk?

    Lam fight I guess but there wasn't any hype. Sittichai fought Anuwat while still being a stadium guy he wasn't an international star 8 years ago. Same thing with Kaew he hadn't gone full blown international yet when he fought Jomthong.

    Once Thais dedicate to fighting foreigners they very rarely if ever fight other Thais doing the same.

    If you are casual Chinese fans, would you watch Chinese vs Thai or Thai vs Thai?
    It is all about TV ratings, and neither Yod nor Yodwicha is an established name in China.

    So the Kunlun Final 16 should be on Aug 5. Means Grigorian isn't going to be there.

    9 names who should be in:
    Nagbe
    Drai
    Moiseev
    Larsen
    Tuinov
    Toutouh
    Feng Xingli
    Zuev
    Superbon


    Pashporin is fighting on the event, could also be in a reserve fight or a superfight who knows. For a while it has seemed like they've had trouble locking down great final picks though so I'd assume Pashporin is getting a straight spot in the tournament.

    Other names that have been rumoured Ristie, Yodwicha, RvR...
    Yodwicha/RvR (+Yodsanklai) have fights elsewhere 1&2 weeks before the Kunlun date so those would seem risky and unlikely even before thinking about any contract issues :)

    From past usuals even Jomthong is in that Wu Lin Feng tournament and definitely busy unless they somehow manage to snatch him away from it completely.

    Interesting to see who they end up getting in there. The field so far isn't what they'd like it to be and prior years they have figured out some nice names when they've needed them.

    Even Petrosyan and Allazov are fighting in 10 days, but after that at least they'd have 3 weeks to that Kunlun date so maybe if they're not too hurt afterwards one of them could be in? :D

    Kiria I would think is in.
    Maybe someone like Ozcan?

    Some of my thinking from earlier in the year gone to shit for various reasons :p
    Hope they still manage to make it a nice Final 16 but definitely not gone exactly how they or I thought earlier on :|

    Would like to see how Tuinov does against superbon. Maybe a thai lesson would be good for him at this point of his career.

    Might be too soon for Yodwicha but not gonna act like im not excited if hes in. Some good opponents for him and we can see how good of a kickboxer he really is. He might get a reality check tho. Risite has been MIA for ages so meh. I'd be surprised if RvR is in unless Glory judges are judging. I think Yod is done with tournaments. Too old and warn out like my current muaythai shorts.

    Jomthong needs to go on a PED cycle. Maybe extra testosterone running through his veins will motivate him a little.

    Looking forward to this one. Petro looks PED ready. Jomthong should take notes.

    And ain't no way in hell is Petro fighting in that tournament. Not even sure Allazov will. They've been cherry picking which promotions to fight under but they have my respect for taking this fight against each other. Almost makes up for it.

    Interested to see how Andy does after his long lay off. Good match up.

    hahah yeah maybe so

    Kunlun would want that kind of fighters though and at this point might be pushed enough to pay for even Petro to come? :D

    They'd need 6 more guys on top of these:

    Nagbe
    Drai
    Moiseev
    Larsen
    Tuinov
    Toutouh
    Feng Xingli
    Zuev
    Superbon
    Ristie

    Kiria should be in...but 5 more guys when Sitti/Marat/Jom aren't coming...
    and since they're getting straight spots they should be pretty good/have some angle to justify them being there. Could put Ozcan, Risco, Semeleer based on ranking I guess even when none of them are really the kind of known in China Kunlun would want. Still need 2 more and if they're "randoms" instead of Petro/Allazov types...

    I think Semeleer too big for 155. He might as well move up to 170.

    Damn Ristie is now 36 years old with 3 years layoff. This is either comeback of the year or getting brutally knocked out of the year.

    I think Ristie has good chances of getting an early KO against superbon. If he gets tired Superbon will fuck him up
