Prajanchai PK Saenchai (R) (ONE Championship)

ONE Championship ‘Battleground’ Results: Prajanchai Dethrones Sam-A, N Sang Scores Knockout

On Friday, July 30, ONE Championship hosted ONE Championship: Battleground from Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore.

The main event put the spotlight on two of the best Muay Thai fighters in the world. Strawweight champion Sam-A Gaiyanghado looked to defend his belt against promotional newcomer Prajanchai. Their main difference comes in age. At 37 years old, Sam-A hoped to hold off another young challenger with the title on the line.

In the co-headliner, Aung La N Sang took on Leandro Ataides. After being a two-division champ, N Sang lost both of his titles to Reinier de Ridder in a span of six months. On the contrary, Ataides finds himself in a similar position. Ataides had won three straight fights before losing his last match-up against De Ridder. Both fighters want to get revenge on the champion, but only one can take the next step forward.


The card aired on B/R Live at 8:30 a.m. ET.
