Nong-O Gaiyanghadao

2020 has offered up many challenges, but one of the bright spots for ONE Championship has been its bantamweight Muay Thai division. At ONE: Collision Course, they will help close the year in style with the highly-anticipated ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Championship meeting between Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and Rodlek PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym.


After months of quarantines, lockdowns, and restrictions, ONE finally returned in the heat of summer with a star-studded ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament guaranteeing its winner a title shot. Although Rodlek lost in his opening round bout, fortune smiled upon the Thai star allowing him to re-enter as a replacement.

Rodlek took the opportunity by the horns and won a unanimous decision over Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai at ONE: A New Breed.

Winning the tournament was difficult enough, but now Rodlek meets Nong-O for the gold. One of, if not the, most dominant champion in martial arts today.

The Thai champion has been on an incredible streak, and in his last outing against Saemapetch Fairtex, he earned a fourth-round KO that electrified the world.

The title for this explosive event is aptly named because these two have been on a collision course, and it all comes to a head in Singapore on Friday.

Bruce Lee

A campaign has begun on the petition website change.org to change the name of Lee County, Fla. to "Bruce Lee County." The area was originally named after the civil war general, Robert E. Lee. But now a movement has been started by a group of local artists known as Artsemble Underground which, according to an NBC News report, is owned by Brian Weaver who said living in a county named after a confederate general does not make him proud.

Norma Dumont vs. Aspen Ladd full Fight video highlights - MMA Fighting

Norma Dumont fought cautious but smart taking a largely uneventful decision over Aspen Ladd in the main event of UFC Fight Night 195 Saturday in Las Vegas. Ladd, who hadn't been in the cage since December 2019, was coming back from a severe knee injury compounded by weight cutting problems. After failing to make weight for a bantamweight match-up two weeks ago, she stepped into the featherweight bout against Dumont on short notice and it all seemed to show. She did little the first three rounds allowing Dumont to build up a lead with little more than her jab. Though Ladd came alive a bit in the last two rounds, Dumont still managed to claim a comfortable unanimous decision.
