Rodlek PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym, 30, of Thailand was one of the winners at “ONE: A New Breed.” The Thai martial artist earned his third victory in the Singapore-based martial arts promotion ONE Championship.
Featuring three MMA and four Muay Thai fights, “ONE: A New Breed” took place in Bangkok, Thailand on August 28, 2020. In the co-main event of the evening, Rodlek fought his countryman “Left Meteorite” Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai, 21, in the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai tournament final round.
Kulabdam started the bout firing his vaunted left hand while Rodlek opted to box and counter.
In the second round, Rodlek turned up the pressure after getting cut on the forehead and did an uppercut and left hook combination that sent Kulabdam crashing to the canvas. The latter was able to beat the count but the former continued to punish him with sharp strikes.
In the third round, Rodlek dropped Kulabdam again, this time with a knee to the midsection and the former then cruised the remainder of the bout to win by wide unanimous decision. Here are the details:
