Rodtang Jitmuangnon

ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang "The Iron Man" Jitmuangnon will compete at ONE Championship's latest offering, ONE: Fists Of Fury, on Friday, February 26, to take on Alejandro Rivas in a kickboxing contest.

With the flyweight gold on the line in the main event between champion Ilias Ennahachi and Superlek Kiatmoo9, #1-ranked contender Rodtang will do his best to defend his ranking and claim next with an emphatic showing.

However, the rising Spaniard is coming to knock him off his pedestal and shock the world.


For the Thai star, 2021 is looking to be a strong year. Rodtang has his match with Rivas set and is also on the bill for the inaugural ONE On TNT card against Jacob Smith in a non-title Muay Thai affair.

If "The Iron Man" gets caught looking ahead, Rivas could play the spoiler's role on the stacked card from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Rivas has made waves in his young career, and in his ONE debut, he will draw perhaps the best pound-for-pound striker on the planet today. The spotlight will shine down and give him the biggest opportunity of his career to put the world on notice.

Many martial artists have been following the incident, investigation, and the ongoing ugly litigation of the tragic Rust movie set shooting that resulted in one death and one injury by the hand of actor Alec Baldwin on at 1:51 p.m. on October 22, 2021. The reason for paying close attention to this incident is that many martial arts schools around the world include firearms training in their curriculum, something I recommended to Black Belt Magazine readers going back to 1999, at various levels: non-firing replicas (such as rubber, plastic, or wooden training guns for take-aways), paintball guns and airsoft guns for realistic scenarios, and real firearms on a live-fire gun range for self-defense. However, along with the use of any firearm for self-defense training, be non-firing ones or the real thing, comes specific safety protocols that must be followed, or else you can end up being the next "Rust story."
