Thailand. Muay Thai fighter Bandasak Chaiyasan has been suspended by the World Muay Thai Council following his May 16th victory via head kick KO in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
X-Ray images showing titanium shin implants were discovered and the Council took action. Sin implants even if used to repair a shin injury violate the International Muay Thai Federation’s Rules and Guidelines.
The fighter claims that the implants were used to help him recover from an injury but many people are doubting his story, as he was active in Muay Thai fights in the past year.
Chaiyasan’s opponent Noppadon Chalor said:
“I have never felt anything like that. I have been fighting for 7 years and I have never felt anything like that kick.” –
Anderson Silva suffered a broken shin bone last year and also kept the titanium rod in place. This is legal under the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts.
