MAX Muay Thai held their last event of the year, MAX Muay Thai The Final Chapter in Thailand today, which saw a huge main event featuring Buakaw Banchamek vs. Enriko Kehl, which always struck me as odd knowing that both Buakaw and Kehl will be fighting for K-1 on December 28th in separate fights, but hey, the more fights featuring these two the better, I say. There was also a 4-man tournament featuring Sagetdao, Andrei Kubelin, Victor Ngabe and Dylan Salvador.
Buakaw and Kehl fought a very tough fight, with Kehl looking good at first, but Buakaw really running away with the fight as it went on, opening up a nasty cut on Kehl's forehead which almost stopped the fight, but the doctors decided that he could continue. Kehl still landed some solid blows throughout, but Buakaw seemed to be on form and had an answer for everything Kehl threw at him.
