Is is possible to stand angled and be a defensive fighter using Muy Thai?
I know that in MMA, Silva is very defensive, but he doesn't use a typical Muy Thai stance.
It seems like pure Muy Thai is who can take the most punishment wins. It's like being Brandon Rios in boxing.
Sure Brandon Rios can beat some guys, but put him in with Mayweather or Pacquaio, and he gets the **** beat out of him.
