Chalamkhao PK.Saenchai put his name in the hat to be considered one of the top strawweight Muay Thai contenders with a unanimous decision win over Pettong Kiatsongrit. He was the better man throughout and shut down an aggressive opponent over nine minutes. If there is a search for Joseph Lasiri’s next title defense, don’t be surprised to hear Chalamkhao’s name batted around.

Yodlekpet Or.Atchariya made his presence known in his ONE debut with a stoppage victory in the second round. Although Romania’s Silviu Vitez was competitive in the first round, a stiff elbow forced a stoppage in the second round and let everyone know “The Destroyer” has arrived on the global stage.

Marie “Snow Leopard” Ruumet took care of business in her catchweight Muay Thai battle with Thai-Ngan Le. The Estonian outworked her Thai counterpart over the course of three rounds and continued to show the fans why she is one of the most fun athletes on the planet. Ruumet kept the action going and picked up a critical win to start her 2023 campaign.
