Sagetdao Petpayathai: My Life as a Fighter
One of The Greatest and Most Aggressive Fighters of All Time
Upon first exposure to Muay Thai at age 7, Sagetdao was hooked on the march-forward, fight-only-to-win style of Muay Khao. However, though he looked up to this style, he could not live up to it.
He asked his uncle who introduced him to Muay Thai if dear uncle could take a step further and introduce him to a Muay Thai camp. Though his wish was granted, Sagetdao performed poorly. He resembled the Muay Khao attitude and style in the first 2 rounds of his fights but gassed in the latter 3 rounds. He lost often, leading the camp owner asking Sagetdao to quit.
He lost an opportunity at his current camp but regained one at Sit Don King when the owner asked to train Sagetdao. Sagetdao trained hard and the gym and played hard outside of it. He liked everyone, and everyone liked him. He even had opportunities to play soccer and kick volleyball after training. Sagetdao found a new home at the Sit Do King gym.
It was Sagetdao’s cinderella story. Well, it was only the first two-thirds. After barely winning his last fight, Sagetdao’s story was approaching midnight. He was transferred again to another camp. This time to his true home: Petpayathai
Sagetdao finally found his footing at Petpayathai and went on to beat big name after big name. He’s beaten Nongbee Kiatyongyuth, Singdam Kiatmuu9, Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, Anuwat Kaewsamrit, Saenchai, Petchboonchu FA Group and more. He has claimed every single title there is in Muay Thai and has gone to win Fighter of the Year awards from both Thailand Sporting Authority and Lumpinee.
Sagetdao is now an instructor at Evolve MMA. He went from being unwanted to being one of the greatest of all time.
