On June 27, 2018, 20 ONE Championship athletes had their face-off at the “ONE: Spirit of a Warrior” press conference at the Pullman Yangon Centrepoint Hotel in Yangon, Myanmar. Graced by ONE Championship chief commercial officer Jack Lim and Telenor Myanmar chief financial officer Yin Yin Htay, the event was conducted by ONE Championship in collaboration with Telenor Myanmar.
On June 29, 2018, the 10 bouts on the “ONE: Spirit of a Warrior” card fired up the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium in Yangon. The fourth bout of the evening was between Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado, 25, of the Philippines and Kritsada “Dream Man” Kongsrichai, 26, of Thailand.
Miado and Kongsrichai battled it out in the strawweight division. Currently reigning as ONE Strawweight World Champion is Yoshitaka “Nobita” Naito, 34, of Japan.
After pulling off a shocking knockout of former strawweight kingpin Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke on March 2, 2018, Miado had his huge wave of momentum halted by the streaking Kongsrichai. The Thai contender authored one of the most dominant performances of the night, wearing out his Filipino opponent with slams to the mat and punishing ground-and-pound.
Prohibiting Miado from fully utilizing his advantage in the stand-up with his grappling proficiency, the 13-time Thai national wrestling champion easily cruised to a unanimous decision victory. Here are the official “ONE: Spirit of a Warrior” results:
