ONE Championship (ONE) returned to the Singapore Indoor Stadium with a world-class showcase of martial arts action at ONE 157: Petchmorakot vs. Vienot. The stacked 13-bout card was highlighted by two Muay Thai World Title fights, the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix quarterfinals, and a pair of submission grappling matches.
In the main event, reigning ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee overcame tough challenger Jimmy Vienot to retain his golden belt. It was an intense back-and-forth battle from the opening bell, as Vienot utilized his height and reach advantage to trouble the Thai warrior early. Vienot continued his relentless pace in the second and third rounds, which made it difficult for Petchmorakot to find his rhythm. In the fourth frame, however, the defending World Champion turned to his dangerous hands, boxing Vienot into a backpedal and dropping the Frenchman with a devastating counter right hook. Vienot survived, which led to a tightly contested fifth round. But in the end, Petchmorakot earned the split-decision victory, successfully defended his World Title, and pocketed a US$50,000 bonus from ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
Performance bonus winners: Petchmorakot Petchyindee, Joseph Lasiri, Rodtang Jitmuangnon, Tye Ruotolo
