Did you know that the character Sagat from Street Fighter was based on a real life Muay Thai fighter? The long limbed boss was inspired by former Rajadamnern and Lumpinee champion Sagat Petchyindee.

But it doesn’t look like Sagat is Buakaw’s favourite character. The legendary Muay Thai fighter is clearly a big Ryu fan.
