Lerdsila: The Most Evasive Muay Thai Champion Today

Download videos:
hd720 medium

Lerdsila, nick named the "Eel," "Mayweather of Muay Thai," is one of the most spectacular competitors today. Like many of his Jockey Gym campmates (Saenchai, Somrak, Silapathai), he is evasive and tricky. Personally, I think he's more evasive than the others, and a hybrid of the three legends mentioned above! Today, he coaches and fights out of the famous Phuket Top Team, where he trains alongside his head coach Pipa from Jockey gym. He's also competing in the prestigious One Championship, who is now regularly hosting world class MMA fights alongside world class striking matches in Muay Thai and Kickboxing.

Nice work - I will share with Lerdsila. He will be flattered for the awesome clip.
Straight FLOW STATE!
What 10,000 hours of Dark Souls looks like...

And people say muay thai lacks speed and finesse. All brute force. Youve proven them wrong Kenshin
For me dodging the leg sweep at 1:43 is one of the most amazing things I've seen. Effortless, and balance is preserved despite having NO contact with the ground and being wrapped up by his opponent.

What a nightmare to fight vs, a guy with elite defence and offence, taunting and mocking you while he's avoiding every thing you throw at him.
When Lerdsila calls a fight a game, you know he's badass
Evil Seeds Grow Naturally
He's basically what Bruce Lee fanboys wish Bruce Lee would be like if he had competed. Super evasive, relaxed, playful and with feet like a young Bill Wallace. There's even a similar display of showmanship and charisma. Just, Lerdsila happens to be the real deal.

Haven't seen this guy before. Good stuff, man.
Michael Power
After watching Kenshin's videos I am now convinced muay Thai are the best fighters of all outside elite mma. And I prefer them. They are exceptional practicioners of strike and clinch/throw fighting. Devastating. And so practiced. Who else goes 100, 200 or even more fights! They are giants of men.
Wing Mark
Wait a minute. They call Lomachenko the matrix. What do they call this guy??
This is the best he could say "it's not about winning or losing, i just want to have fun with it" sadly people i trained with never really understand that i was smilling all the time and just having fun :) Grettings from Poland, keep up Your great work.
Dismissive drive-by posting in a sensitive topic.
It's like his brain has a higher frequency. Dude must see in slow motion.
Martial Lee - Vegan Roundhouse Kicks
Incredible fighting, I love his personal evasive style!
The Explorer
Amazing. He mastered ultra instinct.
John Biggs
I love the quality of elite level Muay Thai fighters you breakdown, a lot of people throw around being an elite level striker, without even knowing about Authentic Muay Thai. I'm a huge fan, and an aspiring fighter, your breakdowns have helped me tremendously.
I just love this channel! Please keep up the good work, as an amateur fighter It helps me a lot to develope. I often use stuff I see in your breakdowns. Probably gonna get your book in the next months too. Kind regards from germany and thank you!
@4:42 Jesus...so sick!
would you look into making a video of Watcharachai Kaewsamrit... 2000 Raja Fighter of the year and HE HAD BEATEN Lerdsila before ;) he flys under the the radar to "farangs" but when i talk to other Thais about Watcharachai they all call him a superstar. he had a run from 99-01 where they though he was unbeatable.. in 2000 had 14 title defenses at Rajadamnern stadium and also a muay femur style guy.. just not so flashy, but HIGHLY technical. love your work, keep doing big things
I see him as more of a Pernell Whitaker of Muay Thai. Someone like Giorgio Petrosyan who uses both naturally gifted reflexes for minute evasive movements (not like Pernell and Lerdsila here), mixed with built-in defense in his strikes and overall technique, and maintaining a key foundation in adhering to defensive responsibilities is what makes fighters like Mayweather and Giorgio a slightly more robust defensive fighter. But for those who rely on an even higher level of god-given reflexive talent that sit there with essentially their hands down and some clever angling are what I consider to be more Sweet Pea Whitaker style fighters. This guy is more like a Sweet Pea kinda fighter, to me. And to me, Samart has elements of this evasive fighter, but more in line with an Ali ;) Not just because they're the biggest icons of their respective sport, but Samart seems to lean towards having god given reflexes, but don't shy away to be more offense-oriented and not necessarily counter-fighters by nature, at the cost of getting hit more (which sounds like Ali and Samart).
Waiting for a ultra instinct comment

Thank you Lawrence, I have fwd/shared this upload with Lerdsila who recently arrived from China and currently in Thailand with a few friends of mine. I am sure that he will appreciate this video you have uploaded for him. Besides being an amazing MuayThai technician, he is one the most nicest and down to earth guys I have met in MuayThai. I had the honor to train, spar and party with him when he was out in California coaching the fighters team. Once again Lawrence, thank you.

Kamlesh Mehra
This boy is a fighting genius. Amazing reflexes and very confident.
A one legged jump over a low kick... thats a new one on me
AJ Steele
seems the lighter guys always have the better cleaner technique out of inadvertent necessity
John Boylan
1:46 is a thing of beauty.
His KO when he fought the MMA guy in Lion Fights was terrifying to watch
Sebben Sebben and Sebben
Finally Lerdsila!!
He is just AMAZING TO WATCH, fancy and technical fighter.
Lawrence van der Zande
Crazy! I'm definitely going to study his fights. Thanks for sharing this!
Muay Thai Thai fighters at the top of the game are a different breed.
PiNG is life
Slamming hard strikes on an opponent is impressive in its own right. However, to control an opponent using accuracy, timing, and tactics is, to me, a level above and is what motivates me to really observe and study the art. Thank you for introducing this fighter to me.
I don't understand why many of these skillful fighters don't get noticed, the ones that are noticed right now are a bit skillful but not like these guys
1:43 One-legged hop over a sweep attempt, while the other leg is trapped. That's just amazing to see.
Chris Nelson
The Floyd mayweather of muay thai
He would lose against an opponent with a firearm.
Rock TheDestroyer
4:11 bullying that poor guy lol

Ronaldinho of muaythai. Amazing fighter.
Diego Garay
por favor haz videos en español, seria genial, me encanta tu canal
One FC might be the best fight organisation in the world now. They do grappling, striking, and MMA. Perfect.
Caleb Herbert
Lmao could you imagine having to fight a guy like that
AJ lawless
I totally agree why waist precious stamina clinching or grappling when you can just put your opponent on his ass example watch the fight between Gracie and sakuraba when the gracies threw in the towl
TheNewsRoom W/ Spidey
*_Lerd & Pipa will ALWAYS be THE legendary fighters of MT_* 👊🤨🦶💥 _Also, add Tony Jaa & u have my “TriPhuktA” / “TrifecThai”, any day of the week_ ❗️ 😏💨🤜 💥🇹🇭💥
scooby doo where are you
i have been watching videos from this channel of and on,and i have to say the technical stuff talked about is well out of my league. but holy shit this guy is another level,i know enough to know this is extra special.
Acquerio Oroevia
Most frustrating type of fighters to fight against. When you train so hard and they slip easy, makes you frustrated. He probably one of the most hated fighters in Muay Thai.
Now this is high level striking, Mcgregor not so much.
Lawrence I haven't checked in with the videos you been putting out lately, but goddamit you are THE analyst when it comes to kick-fighting sports. Love your stuff and you introduce us to some amazing talent and education here!

Midean Stone
Well that does it for me, up to this point i was convinced jon jones was the greatest fighter of all time, but this guy is magnitudes better than anyone ive seen in my 38 years on this earth.
Jose G
Nice video as always! I remember the fiest video i saw from yours was the changpuek kiatsongrit vs roufus video, would you ever go to the joe rogan podcast? Afterall obviously he respects and likes your work not to mention it could be very fun to speak about the best strikers in mma and ufc. Oh yeah and what music do listen to? These days BTS is a really tight group, i recommend BTS - Fire btw
Nesam Skolovala
Good job with breakdowns and analysis,Lawrence,keep up with good work 😊 I just wanted to know which music is at the beginning of the video? 😊
joshia maxenski
Great breakdown n highlight like always! Love ur ebook too, can’t wait for ur next ebook!
Ghost Squad
As usual another great video, thanx for the upload
Stainly Stewart
This man is in the height of the game.
Nick D
Great stuff! Educational! Thanks!
charlie xiong
I watch many of his fights too. Most of the time his opponents can not really find him in the ring.
Sanji Vinsmoke
As always, great content you have shown us. This guy should be consider to be part of the Smash Bros Ultimate fighter rooster for his perfect evasive techniques. Keep up your great work Lawrence!!!

"Eel" man in Thai we called "Pla - Lhai" (Pla = fish , Lhai = Sway , slippery)

really miss this channel
Lerdsila more evasive than Somrak ? Curious ahaha
ฟูจิ ฟูจิจิ
hi callmegus
Well im really surprised. If u check wiki. His pants boost : dodge +60, speed +70, critical chance +30, and critical damage + 80 ... Don't mess with Legendary pants
What a gangsta
Amazing Video , Thanks for your amazing Work.
Steve Garbarini
One of the best I've ever seen. He's gifted which you cannot teach & then he took his lessons of the skill sets required which brings the gift to bear fruit.
great vid thanks
Trevor Arlee
I know this cat dabbles in boxing
Great breakdown!!! The composition and editing is also superb. Can I please get the name of the soundtracks?
Tim Bynum
That was a great video and great break down though I am not a speed reader so I had to pause to read the entirety. Mahalo nui!
Fletcher Hubsch
Hey Lawrence! First of all super big fan! Im glad to see you posting so much! Secondly I was curious how does one go about improving their vision? Ive done boxing for three years and recently started muay thai. Im really trying to build that tactial, technical style and while I feel confident making reads on the offensive I am struggling defensivly.
kolkat c
I think somrak is better just as slippery and evasive but also Olympic boxing gold medalist
Good lord. If I was Dana White I would try and sign this guy to the UFC. Sign him, train him in grappling for a year or so and send him to the octagon. You want to make lots of money, the UFC needs more star power. This guy could give you star power. And contrary to what was written at the beginning of this video he is not using fancy bio mechanics reading or anything. That’s BS. What he’s doing is just using his natural God given reflexes and reactionary talent.
Chris Nelson
Really good stuff
Script Kiddy
Jesus Christ that guy is straight out of The Matrix...

Muythai with good defence is the best....

He has great hand-eye coordination, but hands down... we saw how that eventually worked out for Anderson Silva.
ah oh, I can hear all the keyboard warriors / casual fight fans screaming "hands up"
