Pornsanae Sitmonchai is a Thai Muay Thai fighter. He is known for his low kicks and aggressive fighting style.


Pornsanae began training at his home at age 11 and started fighting shortly after. At age 13 he began training at the Sitmonchai gym.[1] He gained popularity in the early 2000s at both Lumpinee Stadium and Rajadamnern Stadium because of his walk forward fighting style. Some of his most famous fights are against Sam-A Kaiyanghadaogym. Despite losing 4 straight to Sam-A, Pornsaneh got a 5th chance to beat him and he did so by winning a split decision.[2] After losing a decision to Kongsak Sitboonmee in December 2010 Pornsaneh took a break from fighting and spent time at a Buddhist temple and at his farm.[3] In August 2011 he returned to the ring and was KO'd by Palangtip Nor Sripuang. In May 2012 he fought for the first time outside of Thailand when he traveled to the Netherlands to face Ilias El Hajoui.[4] On October 13 he once again left Thailand this time to fight in Australia with Michael Thompson. The fight was a modified Thai rules fight with 4 ounce gloves and was contested in an MMA cage.[5]

He fought Yosuke Morii to a split draw on the scorecards of 49-48, 48-49 and 48-48 at RISE/M-1 ~Infinity.II~ in Tokyo, Japan on January 6, 2013.[6][7][8]

He TKO'd Yokwitaya Petsimean in two on February 7, 2013.[9][10]

He beat Kwankao Chor. Rajapatsadu-Esarn by decision in a rematch on February 22, 2013.[11][12]

In one of the most entertaining fights of the year, Pornsaneh knocked out Saksuriya Gaiyanghadao with a second round high kick at Lumpinee on May 17, 2013.[13]

Pornsaneh lost to Yetkin Ozkul by unanimous decision after a five-round war at Best of Siam 4 in Paris, France on June 20, 2013.[14][15][16]

He best Rungravee Sasiprapa at Siam Warriors in Cork,Ireland on October 12, 2013 with a KO by way of elbow.[17]

He lost to Genji Umeno by fourth-round TKO due to a cut caused by an elbow at Rikix: No Kick, No Life 2014 in Tokyo, Japan on February 11, 2014.[18][19]

Pornsanae rematched Yetkin Özkul in a fight for the WBC Muaythai World Lightweight (-61.2 kg/135 lb) Championship at Le Choc des Légendes 2014 in Saint-Ouen, Seine-Saint-Denis, France on March 8, 2014, losing by third-round TKO.[20] There was considerable controversy surrounding the match as the Sitmonchai camp claimed post-fight that Pornsanae had only been informed of the title on the line in the days leading up to the fight and that Özkul had been prevented from making the contracted weight due to stomach problems and instead weighed in around 72 kg/160 lb, although no official weigh-ins took place. Sitmonchai reluctantly accepted the fight due to their dependency on the promoter to pay them and get them back to Thailand.[21][22]
