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.
