Championship is officially back from its forced hiatus due to
the COVID-19 outbreak.
The promotion came back with an abbreviated card of
One Championship: No Surrender, which took place at the Impact
Arena in Bangkok, Thailand. The main event featured a Muay Thai
clash between One flyweight champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon and
challenger Petchdam Petchyindee Academy. The encounter went on for
five rounds, but it was soon visible that Rodtang’s skills were
superior. While the challenger did his best, Rodtang proved to be
just too much to deal with throughout the fight. With his victory
by unanimous decision, the champ secured his third title
In the co-main event, Phetmorakot Petchyindee Academy put his
featherweight Muay Thai belt on the line against Yodsanklai IWE
Fairtex. Phetmorakot used his legendary accuracy to keep his
opponent at a distance, and the ruthless aggression of Yodsanklai
did not help this time. Eventually, the judges rewarded Phetmorakot
with a decision victory.
In the rubber match of their epic trilogy, Superbon Banchamek
handled Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong via unanimous decision after
three rounds of kickboxing in the One featherweight division.
In some MMA action, Nong Stamp
(5-0) managed to keep her record perfect after smashing One
Srisan (3-1). Right out of the gate, the flamboyant “Stamp
Fairtex” put pressure on her opponent, landing kicks practically at
will. Stamp also found success with many vicious shots from the
clinch. Halfway through the first round, “Stamp Fairtex” threw her
opponent on the canvas and quickly took Srisan’s back, where she
started to land a few shots. Srisan held on tightly with a
headlock, but the referee decided he saw enough and called the end
of the fight at the 3:59 mark in the opening stanza.
In the first MMA fight on the card, Fabricio
Andrade (3-2) made a statement against longtime vet Mark
Abelardo (19-7) in his One debut. Andrade showed off a surgical
striking, punishing his opponent with his crisp jab. Abelardo tried
repeatedly to take the action to the ground, but the Brazilian
proved that he could hold his own as far as grappling goes. Early
into the second round, the Brazilian fighter took his opponent’s
back and locked a vicious rear-naked choke that put Abelardo to
sleep at the 1:11 mark.
The card opened with Superlek Kiatmuu9 edging Panpayak Jitmuangnon
via decision in a 155-pound Muay Thai clash.
