If One: A New Breed 3 is any indication, it could be a great while until someone dethrones One Championship featherweight king Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy.
The defending champion put his muay Thai title on the line for the third time since winning it in 2019 against Magnus Andersson, with the two vying for the strap in the tape-delayed main event that aired on Sept. 18. It did not take long for Petchmorakot to establish dominance over his Swedish opponent through his far superior striking skills. Petchmorakot dictated the pace of the match until he decided to put an end to it in the third stanza. The Thai fighter first landed a violent left hand that visibly shook Andersson. Even though the Swedish contender made it through a standing count, he could do nothing to prevent Petchmorakot’s coup de grace in the form of a picture-perfect left hook.
The co-main event saw the fastest KO landed in One Super Series kickboxing's history in spectacular fashion. The bout pitted One newcomers Capitan Petchyindee Academy and Petchtanong Petchfergus against one another. It took a mere six seconds and one bomb of a right hand to put Petchtanong out before his head clattered against the canvas.
In the only MMA attraction on the bill, Sunisa Srisan upended Rika Ishige at the end of a tepid contest, where both women received yellow cards because of their inactivity. Srisan won a unanimous judges' verdict.
Elsewhere, Felipe Lobo edged Yodpanomrung Jitmuangnon via split decision in a muay Thai clash in One's bantamweight division, and Yurik Davtyan upset Bangpleenoi Petchyindee Academy a few seconds into the Round 2 with a vicious KO in their featherweight muay Thai battle.
