ONE Super Series is making its debut in the ONE Championship cage on April 20, 2018 at “ONE: Heroes of Honor” at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Among those who are excited about this is Muay Thai legend Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke.
“I think it’s great that ONE has started the ONE Super Series,” Amnuaysirichoke said. “It’s great that Muay Thai will be showcased on ONE’s global stage.”
On the ONE Super Series card, Giorgio Petrosyan will battle it out with Jo Nattawut. Nong-O Gaiyanghadao will face Fabio Pinca while Brad Riddell will compete against Regian Eersel.
“I’m excited for all the fans to be able to see the martial art that I grew up with and fell in love with as a child,” the former ONE Strawweight World Champion stated. “I’m excited to have the opportunity to compete in both sports with ONE and look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead.”
Before “ONE: Heroes of Honor,” Amnuaysirichoke is returning to the ONE Championship cage. He will take on Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado of the Philippines at “ONE: Iron Will” at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on March 24, 2018.
Amnuaysirichoke is looking forward to redeem himself. In his last bout, which took place on December 9, 2017 at “ONE: Warriors of the World,” he was submitted by Riku Shibuya of Japan via guillotine choke.
“I was disappointed to have lost my last bout,” Amnuaysirichoke said. “However, no matter if I win or lose, I’m always determined to get back in the cage to improve and get better. I made an error on the ground and got caught. It’s something for me to work on and get better at.”
Headlining “ONE: Iron Will” is reigning ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes (21-3) of Brazil who defends his title against ONE Featherweight and Lightweight World Champion Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen (10-1) of Sydney, Australia. Preliminary bouts start at 7:00 PM local time while main card bouts start at 8:30 PM local time.
