Friday the 17th May will be a night to remember for many muaythai fans around the world as the ONE championship saw two massive upsets with superstars Yodsaenklai and Giorgio Petrosyan both losing to unexpected opponents.
ONE Championship, Enter the Dragon headed to Singapore’s Indoor Stadium, and had a solid card as usual but with the main attraction being for the 8 man World Grand Prix Tournament and featured some of the best muaythai athletes from around the world all competing for a million dollar prize money.
Yodsaenklai Fairtex went head to head with Samy Sana from France in what was an epic fight with both athletes continuously going forward. Samy landed a head kick which clearly wobbled Yodsaenklai and following that he dominated the fight and confirmed that there is a new cat in muaythai town.
Following the epic fight and Yodsaenklai’s defeat came Giorgio Petrosyan versus Petchmorakot Petchyindee. Fans had Petrosyan down as the firm favourite, but the knees of Petchmorakot gained more weight in the eyes of the judges and the referee lifted the hand of an emotional Petchmorakot.
