Saemapetch Fairtek ONE Championship

ONE: No Surrender II comes your way on August 14 from Bangkok, and the main event features a pair of outstanding strikers looking to advance in the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament for their shot at Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and the ONE Bantamweight World Championship.


Saemapetch Fairtex had his shot last year and came up short, but the experience of competing against Nong-O and finding success against him in the heart of the battle fuels his fire to climb back atop the ladder. Standing in his way is Rodlek PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym.

The two warriors have collided in competition three previous times in Thailand, but never on the global platform that ONE Championship provides. Rodlek holds the series edge at 2-1.

The winner will advance to meet the winner of the ONE: No Surrender III main event, Sangmanee Klong Suanpluresort, or Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai.

This ONE Super Series match-up will be a compelling piece of Muay Thai technique as Rodlek's propensity to always move forward will be met with Saemapetch's crisp counterstriking technique.

In this video, ONE commentators and martial arts aficionados Michael Schiavello and Mitch Chilson breakdown the bout between the two Thai athletes. They detail the history between the two, their striking styles, and explain how this contest may look.

Sean Strickland turned in a solid, workman-like performance to extend his UFC win streak to five defeating Uriah Hall by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC on ESPN 28 Saturday in Las Vegas. The pair had been in the cage as training partners before but, when it counted, Strickland had the edge with the harder punches and the superior clinch and ground games.

Hall looked like he had trouble getting off all evening, occasionally showing flashes of his exciting stand up skills but at other times seeming a little lackluster. Strickland dominated much of the middleweight bout with solid jabs and thudding overhand rights. Whenever his opponent did seek to make something happen, Strickland seemed largely unfazed. By the end of the fight he appeared to be walking through Hall's punches and simply shoving Hall back against the fence to control the action.
