We worked the normal combos, then we worked on feeling our opponent out.
Jab, jab, cross.
While doing the above combo, we are watching our opponent.
We can tell a lot about how they react. If they shuffle backward running from us, we can do this combo a few times and then at the end, add a powerhouse right kick while angling out to about 30'.
If they clench up and hide, then we can use the Muay Thai grab, knee with right knee, and then swing their head to our right. If the opponent leaves face open, powerhouse kick to the face, if they do not, powerhouse kick to the legs.
So far Muay Thai is the best stand up I have been a part of. I can definately tell why UFC fighters study this style.
