Number one-rated bantamweight Muay Thai contender Nico Carrillo maintained his immaculate run in ONE Championship after beating the former king of the division, Nong-O Hama, during their clash at ONE Friday Fights 46 in December 2023.

Carrillo engineered a come-from-behind victory against Nong-O and unleashed a powerful left elbow straight into Nong-O's face that floored the legend. This sequence was reposted by ONE Championship on Instagram with the caption:

""King of the North" is here to TAKE OVER 🤯 Can the Scottish star score another win when he takes on Saemapetch on July 5 at ONE Fight Night 23 on @primevideo? 👊 @nicocarrillo_kotn"

That powerful strike was the final blow of the match, as the Thai icon failed to beat the count. This secured Carillo's third successive stoppage victory under the world's largest martial arts organization.
