ONE Friday Fights 2 kept the momentum rolling this past Friday, January 27, when Lumpinee Boxing Stadium once again saw a prolific display of Muay Thai and MMA.

ONE Championship’s sequel to its “Friday Fights” series showcased many exciting fights at the iconic arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

Let’s look at the three biggest takeaways from ONE Friday Fights 2.

Kulabdam Doubles-Down On Sangmanee Victories

Following his incredible one-round blitzing of Sangmanee PK.Saenchai back in August 2020, Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai delivered the goods yet again to put himself into ONE’s bantamweight Muay Thai rankings discussion.

The collision this time around wasn’t as simple as their initial encounter, though. The contest would last all three rounds with Sangmanee offering a much better account of himself over the course of nine minutes.

Despite the better offering from Sangmanee, “Left Meteorite” maintained control of the bout, utilizing his signature combinations and plethora of leg kicks to slow down the attacks of “The Million Dollar Baby.”

The controlled approach was enough to earn Kulabdam the nod from the judges, giving him his second victory over Sangmanee.

Chalamkhao Thrills In ONE Debut

When it comes to Chalamkhao PK.Saenchai, you can forget about debut jitters.

The young prodigy asserted himself directly into the strawweight division this past Friday when he picked apart Pettong Kiatsongrit over the course of three rounds in ONE Friday Fights 2’s co-main event.

Chalamkhao set the precedent for new arrivals in ONE and already has fans talking about a potential collision with ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Champion Joseph Lasiri.

The 20-year-old has entered the promotion with high praise and, should he continue to follow suit, he could be well on his way to becoming the breakout star of the year.

Yodlekpet Arrives In Emphatic Fashion

Four-time Muay Thai World Champion Yodlekpet Or.Atchariya announced his arrival last week in stunning fashion, living up to his moniker of “The Destroyer.”

Yodlekpet breezed through Silviu Vitez, dispatching the Romanian by TKO in the second round in 140-pound catchweight action.

The Thai scrapper set up the finish with a sharp elbow that pierced its way through Vitez’s guard, damaging his head before the medical team at ringside deemed his foe unable to continue.

“The Destroyer’s” inaugural performance in ONE rewarded him with a US$10,000 bonus for his efforts and made him one of the most exciting new arrivals in the promotion’s ever-evolving Muay Thai division.
