Did you know the Street Fighter Sagat is based off a real life phenom named Sagat Petchyindee?
Here's something perhaps even more crazy - Sagat had a huge influence in MMA. Tristar Gym/coach Zahabi? studied under Sagat personally, for months at a time when only few foreigners were accepted.
At the highest levels of MMA, Georges St-Pierre? and Rory MacDonald? used many of the techniques learned from Sagat. Luckily for us, Firas is doing amazing tutorials on the Tristar Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/tristargymcanada
