I'm sorry if this has been posted before but what do you think about the quality of the fighters in this vid? The MT fighter looks lazy and sloppy, with maybe decent kicks. I really like the kicks and defensive skills of the Karate guy but I think his hand striking skills are lacking a bit. Any thoughts?

I liked it. The karateya looked more focused.
The clinch wasn't good. (No knees, punches or kicks.)
The handtechniques of the MT fighter lacked.
The low kicks didn't look that hard at all, good technique I guess.

Great clip.

No surprises, the big guy won. It looks like he out-weighed the Muay Thai guy by 40-50 lbs. That's why boxing and Muay Thai have weight divisions. Here's another example of the big guy winning:

Not only that, but he didn't let any speed difference give an advantage to the MT guy except for that lazy spinning crescent kick. The karateka wised up after that.
