On Friday 7th February, ONE Championship returned to Jakarta in Indonesia for another stacked card featuring three epic Muay Thai bouts.
Savvas Michael was gracious in defeat to Taiki Naito, Josh Tonna and Andy Howson showed each other nothing but respect, and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy claimed an inaugural ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World championship.
Here’s how they reacted to their results on social media;

I really can't imagine what am I going to be in life without being martial artists. ⠀ ⠀ There is a strong possibility to say that my life can survive because of doing martial arts.⠀ ⠀ I came from the poverty village in northeast part of Thailand near Laos boarder where the children could find an illegal drug easily.⠀ ⠀ I was raised by my grandmother since my father and mother decided to stay apart. Fighting Muaythai is only an option that I could escape from the problems.⠀ ⠀ Petchyindee is a piece of precious jigsaw which makes my life perfect by having the bosses as my father and the trainers as my brother. ⠀ ⠀ Again without fighting under One Championship, I would probably say goodbye to my journey because in the past 5 years I really couldn't find opponents anymore in Thailand. ⠀ ⠀ Dear One Championship, you are another greatest piece of the jigsaw that revives my martial arts life again.⠀ ⠀ I am working on improving myself day by day. Thank you everyone for supporting me. 2020 will be an awesome journey ⠀ ⠀ @onechampionship @petchyindee @pryde.official @yodchatri @teddybear.pyd @bbethv @virat.pyd
