          Wrestling depends on your ability to move your opponent. Striking is a much different ordeal. Your size is always an advantage, but it doesn’t make up for a lack of skill. (To be fair, I don’t know how short these thai gentlemen are. Their ability to kick your ass depends on their ability to even reach it.)

                This is an example of why the highest level of competition doesn't always make for the most interesting viewing. It's kind of lame when you have to be a garden gnome for every advantage. If you're fighting for 5th place at nationals, you can go for creative shit and do more than the one or two moves you've been going over for 10 years.

          you don't know shit about fighting
          Weight classes exist for a reason, to stop professional fighters from fucking up other professional fighters that are much lighter than them. That's different from a trained fighter fucking up "I've never thrown a punch in my life". You only have a height and size advantage if you know how to use it.

          Perhaps in wrestling where size and strength is more important, because you physically have to move the other person and their bodyweight, can a much bigger person win against someone more experianced than you. In Mauy Thai, they will just kick the shit out of your shins and unless you've developed bone strength and pain tolerance for this specifically, you will get fucked.

    Short answer: Weight classes
    Long answer: Cardio but also weight classes

    Traditional Muay Thai fighters train much more than fighters of any other dicipline and they do so trying to gain whatever muscles they can while maintaining their weight classes.

    Just to make you understand how little Muay Thai fighters weigh, the MIDDLE class is 72.5kg. There are 12 weight classes beneath that weight and only 4 classes above. It's only in the classes above you'll see ripped fighters.
