MAX Muay Thai IV: Sendai took place this past weekend in Japan. The main event featured a fourth match between Buakaw Banchamek and Yoshihiro Sato. Buakaw has won two of the three previous meetings, although the most recent victory had gone to Sato by KO in 2008.
Sato looked good in the first round, but after that it became all Buakaw. It was evident that Sato could not match Buakaw in the clinch and Buakaw implemented various sweeps and throws throughout the fight. When the fight was over it was ruled a decision victory for Buakaw.
In the MAX Muay Thai tournament final Jingreedtong defeated Dylan Salvador by decision to take home the tournament crown.
