Two-division Lion Fight World Champion “Smokin’” Jo Nattawut, 29, of Thailand was one of the winners at “ONE: Clash of Legends” at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on February 16, 2019. It was his third win in ONE Championship’s striking-only league ONE Super Series.

“ONE: Clash of Legends” is the first ONE Championship event in Thailand in 2019 and it featured five Muay Thai contests and seven mixed martial arts bouts. In the seventh bout of the evening, Nattawut faced Samy “AK47” Sana, 29, of France in a Muay Thai bout in the featherweight division.

Atsushi Onari served as the referee of the featherweight bout between Nattawut and Sana. Early in the match, the French-Algerian contender’s height and reach proved to be a problem for his Thai opponent.

But in the final two rounds, Nattawut rallied back with a torrent of thunderous low kicks. After three three-minute rounds, the bout was left in the hands of the judges.

In the end, Onari raised the hand of Nattawut. The Thai contender was declared the winner via unanimous decision.

Including Thailand and France, 14 countries were represented at “ONE: Clash of Legends.” The other countries were Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, South Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States.
