Superlek Kiatmoo9 ONE Championship

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.

Superlek's defense allowed him to take over the bout and negate Khaled's offense in the final six minutes. "The Kicking Machine" kicked his way to a decision.

Supergirl Jaroonsak Muaythai made his ONE debut in emphatic fashion with a blistering knockout of Milagros Lopez. The 16-year-old followed in her sister's, Wondergirl Fairtex, footsteps by scoring a quick first-round KO in their first ONE outings.

In mixed martial arts action, Witchayakorn Niamthanom, Abu Muslim Alikhanov, and Brogan Stewart-Ng showed fans how dangerous submissions are as they finished all of their opponents by tap out. Niamthanom and Stewart-Ng won by rear-naked choke, and Alikhanov finished with an ankle lock.
