Some of the most devastating knockout artists on the planet will be in Bangkok, Thailand, when ONE Championship resumes its flagship event schedule at ONE: NO SURRENDER on Friday, 31 July.
The Home Of Martial Arts is clearly roaring back in style, and fans can expect to see these world-class athletes look for the finish in the Thai capital.
With that in mind, here are three of the best knockouts in ONE Championship from the heroes who are scheduled to compete at ONE: NO SURRENDER.
Petchdam’s Knockout Debut
Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy introduced the global fan base – and Josh “Timebomb” Tonna – to his thunderous left roundhouse during his promotional debut at ONE: PURSUIT OF POWER in June 2018.
In the opening round, the Thai southpaw battered his adversary’s ribs and arms with his signature kicks, and he also threw a few elbows and exchanged knees with Tonna in the clinch.
The Petcyhindee Academy standout continued to utilize his favorite weapon in the second frame. Then, following a brief injury timeout for an inadvertent groin kick, he found the opening he was looking for.
Petchdam hopped forward and threw his left roundhouse kick just as the Australian lowered his stance. The Thai’s shin connected with the right side of Tonna’s body, and simultaneously, his knee smashed the Aussie’s head, dropping him to the canvas for the knockout.
At ONE: NO SURRENDER, Petchdam will challenge ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon for the gold.

Yodsanklai’s Triple-Uppercut Stunner
“The Boxing Computer” Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex participated in the first Muay Thai main event in ONE history at ONE: DESTINY OF CHAMPIONS back in December 2018, and he produced a conclusion that was worthy of the occasion.
In his battle with Australia’s Luis “Soot Raaeng Geert” Regis, the legendary Thai stalked his opponent and threatened with his famed left cross and roundhouse kick.
Regis mixed up his attack and threw everything he could at the Fairtex representative, including punches, spin kicks, and even a step-in knee, but nothing could derail his iconic rival’s momentum.
The end came in the final minute of the opening round. Yodsanklai had his opponent’s back against the Circle Wall, and he jumped forward with a perfect jab-cross, stunning the Australian.
“The Boxing Computer” then fired off three consecutive uppercuts – instantly dropping Regis to the mat and turning off his lights.
Yodsanklai will certainly look to use his powerful punches against compatriot and ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy in the co-main event of ONE: NO SURRENDER.

When Stamp Fairtex made her mixed martial arts debut on Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series in July 2018, she captured everyone’s attention with a single kick.
Just seconds after the opening bell, the Muay Thai stylist and her opponent, India’s Rashi Shinde, circled each other and tried to find their range.
The Fairtex representative quickly hit a leg kick and then stepped away to continue sizing up her opponent.
Noticing the Indian’s left hand was low, Stamp threw a strong-side roundhouse kick at Shinde’s head, which instantly dropped her to the ground and forced the referee to stop the contest.
It took the future ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Champion just 19 seconds to earn the win.
Stamp will now look for another quick victory when she faces her undefeated countrywoman, Sunisa “Thunderstorm” Srisen, at ONE: NO SURRENDER.
