Lamsonkram's more legit than Eliot Ness, a bonafida Thai baddass.

In fact he's more legit than the show was making out, they only mentioned his WBC & WMC titles, but in the MT world it's the Lumpinee and Rajadamnern Stadium belts that are the true world champoinship belts. Lam is a 2 time Rajadamnern Champ, S-1 Champ (the Muay Thai version of K-1 Max), fought and beaten some of the best in his weight including fellow Thai giant Kaoklai (the guy that left his shin indent on Mighty Mo's forehead, remember......).

Past his prime, but can still give anyone a serious s****! Is he legit, well just look at his record: 300-45-7

He's unusually big for a Thai, so spent most of his later career fighting (playing with ) forigners outside Thailand, which makes him a very good choice for GSP. Hopefully he can put some speed and snap into GSPs kicks, which look a bit clumsy and slow. I hope for him he can get more well paid work like this training top UFC fighters.
