Fighting out of Thailand, Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon, 21, is an experienced martial artist. He and his teammate Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnon, 24, are among the athletes recently added to the ONE Super Series roster of ONE Championship.
Rodtang holds a professional Muay Thai record of 252 wins, 40 losses and 10 draws and two reigns as an Omnoi Stadium Muay Thai Champion. He will be coming into ONE Super Series, eager to bounce back after a controversial loss to Tenshin Nasukawa, 20, of Japan at “RISE 125” on June 17, 2018.
Proudly representing the famed Jitmuangnon Gym in Bangkok, Rodtang will make his ONE Championship debut at “ONE: Conquest of Heroes” at the Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia on September 22, 2018. He will compete a ONE Super Series Muay Thai flyweight contest against Sergio “Samurai” Weilzen, 30, of Suriname.
“I am honored to be part of this world-class martial arts organization,” Rodtang conveyed. “With ONE Championship opening its doors for other martial artists like me to join and showcase our talent on a global stage, it means a lot to me as an athlete. This is a new challenge and I love challenges.”
“I’m really excited to make my debut in Jakarta against a tough martial artist such as Sergio Wielzen,” Rodtang said of his Weilzen, who is a two-time W5 World Champion. “Sergio is a decorated champion, and I’m sure he will bring out the best in me as I will with him.”
As ONE Championship continues to cement its place as the premier martial arts organization in the world, more and more talents are taking notice and directing their career paths to the promotion. It is no doubt that the Singapore-based promotion is already the undisputed home of the world’s best martial artist.
Rodtang and Yodpanomrung are now joining Muay Thai and kickboxing stars like Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan, Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and many others in the ONE Super Series roster. Meanwhile, here is a clip featuring one of Petrosyan’s recent bouts:
