ONE Championship No Surrender 2

ONE Championship returned to Bangkok for ONE: No Surrender II on Friday, August 14. Once again, it was another six-bout main card featuring ONE Super Series and mixed martial arts action.

As ONE gets back into a full schedule, the athletes competing attempted to make strong statements and move up in their respective divisions. None more important than the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament main event where the winner of the tournament is guaranteed a title shot against Nong-O Gaiyanghadao.

Mehdi Zatout moved passed Leo Pinto in the co-main event to keep his win streak going. The youthful Pinto could not overcome Zatout's experience, but had his own moments throughout the contest. Zatout's victory could put him closer to breaking through on the ONE Athlete Rankings.

40-year-old Akihiro Fujisawa, a ONE Warrior Series Contract Winner, rebuked Father Time with a first-round knockout. The martial arts veteran had been on a losing skid, but the emphatic knockout erased the bad taste in his mouth and put him back in the win column with a memorable finish.
