In August, Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Jonathan Haggerty went to war for Haggerty’s ONE Championship flyweight Muay Thai title. Haggerty applied the pressure early on, but the challenger surged back as the rounds progressed. It was a close fight, but Rodtang ultimately took the nod and left with the crown.
Five months later, the two men collided again with Rodtang the champion and Haggerty the challenger. It served as the headlining contest of ONE Championship: A New Tomorrow.
The Muay Thai championship bout capped off a 12-fight card that also featured Stamp Fairtex’s continuing quest to conquer a third combat sport under the ONE banner. Stamp already holds gold in kickboxing and Muay Thai with the promotion, but now she’s on the hunt for an MMA belt.
The lineup also featured such notables as Sangmanee Sathian Muaythai, Thanh Le, Ryogo Takahashi, Liam Harrison, Muangthai PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym, Joey Pierotti and Ayaka Miura.
The action kicked off early Friday morning, Jan. 10, with the main card airing live on B/R Live at 8:30 a.m. ET.
