ONE Championship build-up to is first event since beginning of the year!

ONE Championship brings high-level striking to the forefront of the global stage on July 31 with two incredible title tilts at ONE: No Surrender. Ahead of the action, Asia's largest sports media property released two videos to help fans understand the build-up to the bouts.

ONE commentators Michael Schiavello and Mitch Chilson offered their insight into the marquee match-ups.

Rodtang "The Iron Man" Jitmuangnon will defend his ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Championship against Petchdam "The Baby Shark" Petchyindee Academy in the main event. The two warriors have met twice before outside of ONE, and they split the series.

What makes the main event clash even more high stakes is that it will be the first time the two meet wearing four-ounce gloves.

In the co-main event, ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy will tangle with a legend in the sport, "The Boxing Computer" Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex.

It is a golden opportunity for Yodsanklai to recapture past glory and upset the champ. Still, Petchmorakot can use the platform of the worldwide audience to showcase his dominance against an all-time great.

ONE: No Surrender takes place in Bangkok and will be aired live and free in the United States via the B/R Live app.

Check out these two epic videos below!

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

In the early 2010's, Ken Warner (otherwise known as ZenInc on YouTube) always shared his "Top Five" on Facebook after major sport karate events. Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend. Special thanks to Ken Warner for his contributions to documenting sport karate history. Without further ado, here is Jackson's Five for the Diamond Nationals.

In a match-up of elite middleweights contested at light heavyweight, Marvin Vettori outfought Paulo Costa over five rounds to take a unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 196 Saturday in Las Vegas. Originally scheduled for 186 pounds, Costa announced he weighed 211 on Wednesday and wouldn't even be trying to make 186 so the bout was reset for 195 pounds. But when Costa said that was still no good, the UFC and the Nevada Athletic Commission gave him his way as Vettori agreed to fight at 205.
