ONE Championship shared a cageside view of Rodtang Jitmuangnon's vicious combination landed on Jacob Smith.

In May 2022, 'The Iron Man' put his undefeated promotional Muay Thai record on the line when he was matched up against Smith in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix quarterfinals. The action-packed matchup took place inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium during ONE 157.

Smith was making his promotional debut at the time and hoped to make a statement by taking out the Thai superstar. Unfortunately for him, Rodtang proved too much for the former British Muay Thai champion, as he battered him before emerging victorious by unanimous decision.

ONE recently posted a highlight on Instagram of 'The Iron Man' unloading a brutal combination on Smith, which can be seen below.

Since then, Smith has gone 1-1 under the ONE banner, including a knockout win against Walter Goncalves and a unanimous decision loss against Denis Puric last time out. Meanwhile, the reigning ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion has gone 2-1 in Muay Thai and defeated Jiduo Yibu in kickboxing.


What's next for Rodtang in ONE Championship?

On June 7, ONE Championship will travel to the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand for an action-packed event, ONE 167. The main event and co-main event feature world title matchups, but many fans are excited for a fight earlier in the night that features Rodtang.

In the flyweight kickboxing division, 'The Iron Man' looks to extend his promotional record in the sport to 3-0. To do so, the Thai superstar must get through the always-dangerous Denis Puric, who made a statement by defeating Jacob Smith in Muay Thai last time out.

Following his win at ONE Fight Night 21, Puric called for a flyweight Muay Thai world title shot against Rodtang. Instead, 'The Bosnian Menace' will face him in kickboxing, which could lead to a rematch in "The Art of Eight Limbs."

ONE 167 can be seen live and for free by American and Canadian viewers with an active Amazon Prime Video subscription.
