About

Unsurprisingly, Kayin State’s Saw Ba Oo first embarked on his martial arts journey through the national striking art of lethwei. However, his mother disapproved at first, which the young boy got around by competing in secret. Due to his obvious passion for the sport, his mother relented, and he now trains with his parents’ blessings.

Already with several ONE Championship bouts under his belt, Saw Ba Oo made his professional cage debut at the promotion’s inaugural Myanmar event, ONE: KINGDOM OF WARRIORS, in 2015. That night, he made it to the finals of the ONE Myanmar Lightweight Tournament with a first-round TKO of Dawna Aung, but was ultimately unable to capture the title.

He stayed determined, however, and made a successful return to the cage in October 2016 at ONE: STATE OF WARRIORS with another TKO victory, this time over Kyal Sin Phyo.
