ONE Championship was back in action on Friday, September 11, in Bangkok, Thailand with ONE: A NEW BREED II.

The six-bout card was full of exciting action and was capped off by a thrilling bantamweight Muay Thai bout between Pongsiri PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym and Sean "Clubber" Clancy. Pongsiri did enough to get the win, but Clancy's third-round performance will win him a legion of fans.

In the co-main event, Superlek Kiatmoo9 defended his #2-ranking in the flyweight kickboxing division by utilizing his knowledge and experience to take a decision against a very game Fahdi Khaled.
