Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“This is an exciting fight because it is so personal. There was a bit of history between Wiratchai and the Panjabutra camp dating back from the Naksu days and they weren’t impressed by what they perceived as showboating during his win over DK. I like Wiratchai as a fighter, he is comfortable fighting on the floor or on his feet and obviously enjoys being in the cage, but he’s up against a tough opponent from up country who would love nothing more than to put a beating on the poster boy from Bangkok.”
