The ONE Championship fight card happening on May 22 will be one for the books. The explosive 16-bout card will focus mostly on the striking arts, mainly Muay Thai.
The event will be headlined by two Muay Thai title fights, a pair of submission grappling contests, and four quarterfinal bouts at ONE's first-ever flyweight Muay Thai Grand Prix.
Expect ONE 157: Petchmorakot vs. Vienot to deliver action from start to finish. The ONE Championship fight card will also feature contests in MMA and kickboxing.
In the main event, ONE featherweight Muay Thai champ Petchmorakot Petchyindee will defend the strap against former Lumpinee champion Jimmy Vienot. In the co-main event spot, the ONE strawweight Muay Thai belt will be on the line as Prajanchai PK.Saenchai will face the Italian hurricane, Joseph Lasiri.
Also, ONE's first-ever flyweight Muay Thai Grand Prix tournament starts in grand fashion as dominant champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon takes on UK's no.1 Jacob Smith.
Moreover, competing in the tournament will be former champ and Rodtang's rival, Jonathan 'The General' Haggerty, as he squares off against former title challenger Walter Goncalves.
Another highly anticipated feature on the main card will be the ONE debut of jiu-jitsu rising stars Tye and Kade Ruotolo as they lock horns with two of the best ever, Garry Tonon and Shinya Aoki, respectively.
