“Get Up” Muay Thai Fighter Destroys BJJ Practitioner in MMA Bout

Muay Thai is no joke. Widely known as the most devastating striking art, professional MMA bouts have 5 minute rounds so it requires an extremely high level of fitness.

In a spectacular showcase of striking prowess, Thai sensation Yodkaikaew Fairtex delivered a stunning performance against American BJJ practitioner Alex Schild in a mixed martial arts bout under the ONE Championship banner. The fight, which took place in 2019, was part of the events leading up to ONE 158 on June 3rd.

Yodkaikaew, often referred to by his nickname “Y2K,” is renowned for his aggressive Muay Thai style, which was fully on display as he overpowered Schild, a skilled Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter. The match highlighted the striking-versus-grappling dynamic often seen in MMA, with Y2K’s stand-up skills proving too much for Schild’s groundwork.

The bout ended decisively, securing Yodkaikaew’s position as a formidable force in the ONE Championship’s flyweight division.
