In pro wrestling bouncing off the ropes is an amazing idea that can set you up for entire arsenal of cool moves. In an actual Muay Thai fight bouncing off the ropes results in nothing but sleep and a great knockout visual for the fans. Nobody wants to keep their hands up when they bounce off the ropes, it just doesn’t look stylish.
From a Muay Thai fight somewhere we have a flying elbow knockout that lands with the force of not just the leaping bone strike but also the momentum of another dude bouncing himself off the ring ropes. Like grown ass man breaking his ankle inside a made for kid’s bounce house you have a brief glimmer of pure bliss before a jumping elbow shuts your lights off.
