Marie “Snow Leopard” Ruumet, 20, of Estonia has earned her first victory in ONE Championship‘s striking-only league ONE Super Series. The Estonian martial artist was one of the “ONE: No Surrender 3” winners.

Featuring four Muay Thai and two MMA matches, “ONE: No Surrender 3” took place in Bangkok, Thailand on August 21, 2020. In the second bout of the evening, Ruumet fought Ayaka “Little Tiger” Miyauchi (宮内彩香), 37, of Japan in a Muay Thai contest in the featherweight division.

Kregklai Klaokleng served as the referee. Ruumet was effective with her reach and timing, staying tall while attacking Miyauchi with roundhouse kicks, step through elbows and a stream of powerful knees in the clinch.

Although Miyauchi never backed down, Ruumet’s constant pressure continued through rounds two and three and proved too much for the Japanese athlete to overcome. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of the Estonian contender to win by unanimous decision.

 

Winning at “ONE: No Surrender improved the professional Muay Thai record of Ruumet to 29 wins and 9 losses. On the other hand, Miyauchi now has 35 wins and 20 losses.
