ONE Championship’s Battleground III marked its final card of August, and boasted an all-Thailand Muay Thai battle as its main event on Friday.
That headliner saw Sitthichai taking on Tawanchai in a featherweight Muay Thai showdown, after both fighters had their original opponents fall through. A former Lumpinee Stadium Welterweight Champion and Glory Lightweight Champion, Sitthichai was looking to bounce back after suffering a third loss at the hands of Superbon Banchamek.
One of the higher-stakes fights, however, came earlier on in the night. In an women’s atomweight MMA bout, Bi Nguyen was matched up with Jenelyn Olsim — with the winner promised an alternate slot in the upcoming atomweight grand prix.
Nguyen, a former KOTC fighter, was entering the bout off the biggest win of her career, which saw her win a split decision against Indian wrestling standout Ritu Phogat, who had previously been undefeated.
Also on the Battlground III card, Tial Thang, a student of ONE Championship star Aung La N Sang.
ONE Championship’s Battleground III broadcast kicks off at 8AM ET. Where available, a stream of all the action is available above. Full results can be found below.
