Allycia Hellen Rodrigues is the new Queen of One Championship
28 August 2020 – Bangkok, Thailand: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), returned to the bustling capital of Thailand with another showcase of world-class martial arts at its finest. Taking place last Friday, 28 August, ONE: A NEW BREED, broadcast live in over 150 countries, featured some of the world’s most promising young martial arts stars, and battle-proven veterans who put together incredible performances inside the ONE Championship ring.
In the main event of the evening, ONE Super Series debutant Allycia Hellen Rodrigues of Brazil scored a shocking upset of now former world champion Stamp Fairtex of Thailand to win by a close decision. Stamp started off fast and strong, battering Rodrigues with pinpoint combinations, with the Brazilian just a touch behind on every exchange. In the second round, Stamp continued to pour on the pressure, catching Rodrigues with well-timed combinations. The momentum shifted slightly in a closely contested third round, as Rodrigues began to increase her output. In the fourth and fifth rounds, Rodrigues pulled ahead of the contest, punishing Stamp with sharp knees and elbows in the clinch. With Stamp fading late, Rodrigues took control of the matchup the rest of the way. In the end, Rodrigues came away with a majority decision to be crowned the new ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Champion.
In the evening’s co-main event, CH7 MuayThai World Champion Rodlek PK Saenchai emerged the winner of the ONE Bantamweight MuaThai Tournament following a commanding performance over countryman “Left Meteorite” Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai. Kulabdam started the bout firing his vaunted left hand, with Rodlek opting to box and counter. In the second round, Rodlek turned up the pressure after getting cut on the forehead. An uppercut and left hook combination sent Kulabdam crashing to the canvas. “Left Meteorite” was able to beat the count but Rodlek continued to punish him with sharp strikes. In the third round, Rodlek dropped Kulabdam again, this time with a knee to the midsection. Rodlek then cruised the remainder of the bout to win by wide unanimous decision. As the winner of the tournament, he will now move on to face ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao.
