The benefits of learning and Muay Thai rules

Most Muay Thai fights consist of 5 3-minute rounds with 2 minutes of rest between each round. As the fight begins, both fighters will try to knock out their opponent using their fists, feet, elbows, knees, and legs to win the fight. 


If someone knocks out their opponent, the fight ends and the referee stops the fight due to the inability of the opponent to continue. 


But if no one is knocked out until the end of the game and it continues, at the end of 5 rounds, the points will be counted and one of the fighters will be announced as the winner. If the scores are even, a draw will be made to determine the winner.
