Allycia Hellen Rodrigues

A new ONE Championship World Champion was crowned in Bangkok at ONE: A New Breed on Friday, August 28. Allycia Hallen Rodrigues announced herself to the world in an upset of Stamp Fairtex in the evening's main event.

The remainder of the card did not disappoint. The event opened with five straight finishes before the two main event bouts.

The Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament also concluded and produced the next challenger for Nong-O Gaiyanghadao's ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Championship. What else did you miss? Let's have a look at the recap of ONE: A New Breed.


Main Event: Stamp Fairtex vs. Allycia Hellen Rodrigues

Rodrigues Winner by Majority Decision

Round 5 - 3:00

Much like how Janet Todd dethroned Stamp off her kickboxing perch, Rodrigues did the same to take the Muay Thai crown. Rodrigues started slow, but picked up the pace and closed strongly in the final three rounds. The close contest was not a clean sweep, but the Brazilian did enough to earn the majority decision victory and begin a new era in the atomweight division.

In other bouts, Denice Zamboanga made short work of Watsapinya Kaewkhong to keep her top-spot in the atomweight rankings with an eye firmly on Angela Lee's title. Her brother, Drex, also picked up a submission victory earlier in the night.

In the strawweight Muay Thai division, Wondergirl Fairtex continued her rise with a TKO victory. It was an exciting event producing new stars and new challengers. Not much more could be asked out of the seven-bout event from Bangkok.

Takakeisho claimed the November Grand Sumo Tournament Sunday with a playoff victory over Terunofuji. The pair had already met in the final scheduled match of the 15-day long event with Terunofuji throwing Takakeisho to the ground to win the bout and force the playoff as both men finished with a 13-2 record.

But Takakeisho, 24, came out hitting in the playoff forcing Terunofuji out of the ring to capture the championship, his second Emperor's cup since achieving ozeki status, sumo's second highest rank. The tournament, which had to be moved from Fukuoka to Tokyo due to coronavirus concerns, was contested without grand champions Hakuho and Kakuryu who withdrew due to injuries.
