The explosive ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament took place earlier this year, and Rodlek PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym capped off the festivities by winning the final.
Now, the Thai striker will receive his ultimate prize – a World Title clash with reigning ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao at ONE: COLLISION COURSE on 18 December.
The bout between the two “art of eight limbs” tacticians will headline the card at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, and it’s a matchup that’s sure to produce fireworks.
Nong-O has dominated ONE Championship since joining the promotion in April 2018.
In his debut, he outworked legendary striker Fabio Pinca over three rounds to score a unanimous decision.
Then in 2019 – two bouts after his successful entrance – Nong-O defeated Han Zihao to earn the belt, and he’s since defended the strap three times against the division’s best.
But Rodlek is an absolute monster; his chin can absorb bricks and his punches produce damaging effects. He proved that against “Left Meteorite” Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai in the tournament final.
If the challenger can find a way to land one of those haymakers on the elusive World Champion, we could see Nong-O’s durability tested for the first time in The Home Of Martial Arts.
Meanwhile, the co-main event for ONE: COLLISION COURSE has also been revealed.
In the prelude to the headliner, former ONE Featherweight World Champion Marat “Cobra” Gafurov will battle Lowen Tynanes in a lightweight mixed martial arts matchup.
