ONE Championship returned to the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand Friday. There, it hosted Warriors of Light, a hybrid card featuring MMA, Muay Thai, and kickboxing action with two title fights.
The first saw Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao retain his title, with a unanimous decision win over Japan’s Hiroaki Suzuki. It was a dominant performance by Nong-O, who defended his title for the first time. He moved to 4-0 in the promotion with the victory.
In the co-main event, meanwhile, Petchdam Petchyindee Academy claimed the inaugural ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship after a hard-fought battle with Algeria’s Elias Mahmoudi. The fight made it all the way to the fifth and final round before an illegal strike rendered Mahmoudi unable to continue. The scorecards, however, had it for Patchdam.
