Top-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Saemapetch finally avenged his loss to number two contender Rittewada, who was the victor of their first matchup in Nov 2021, reports the Bangkok Post.

The Fairtex athlete was gunning for revenge and landed a stunning knockout with an overhand left that spun Rittewada to the ground and effectively ended the fight in round two. Saemapetch’s performance also earned him a US$50,000 (B1.8 million) bonus.

The co-main event of ONE 160 was a barnburner between Thanh Le and number one-ranked contender Tang Kai. The two exchanged powerful strikes for the majority of their match, with Tang withstanding the power Le delivered in the earlier rounds. The Chinese MMA fighter eventually won, improving his record to 14-2 and becoming the new ONE featherweight world champion.

In the main event, division kingpin Ok Rae Yoon and number one contender Christian Lee battled for the ONE lightweight world championship in a match that didn’t go the distance. “The Warrior” Lee attacked Ok from start to finish, delivering a technical knockout in the first minute of the second round and receiving a US$50,000 bonus.

In addition, Tommy Langaker and Martin Batur also brought home well-deserved US$50,000 bonuses for their performances.
