Four Superstars Earn US$50,000 Performance Bonuses At ONE Fight Night 19

Saemapetch Fairtex Mohamed Younes Rabah ONE Fight Night 19 5

The world’s largest martial arts organization returned to the historic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, for an action-packed U.S. primetime card on Friday, February 16.

Among the spectacular performances at ONE Fight Night 19: Haggerty vs. Lobo on Prime Video, four athletes stood out above the rest to earn themselves some extra cash.

ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong awarded US$50,000 performance bonuses to two-sport ONE World Champion Jonathan “The General” Haggerty, #4-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Saemapetch Fairtex, promotional newcomer Martyna Kierczynska, and Thai brawler Thongpoon PK Saenchai.

In the main event, Haggerty overcame some early trouble to roar back with a highlight-reel knockout of Brazilian finisher and #3-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Felipe “Demolition Man” Lobo.

With the sensational third-round stoppage, the Brit retained his ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Title and secured an extra US$50,000 – his third consecutive performance bonus.

The co-main event saw the always-exciting Saemapetch avenge a controversial defeat to Mohamed Younes Rabah and, to make the win even sweeter, take home a performance bonus.

The Thai’s missile of a left hand was on point from the opening bell, knocking down the previously undefeated Algerian three times in the opening round for an emphatic victory.

Polish standout Kierczynska enjoyed a triumphant promotional debut and earned an extra US$50,000 thanks to her dominant showing against Thai fan favorite Nat “Wondergirl” Jaroonsak.

The 21-year-old blasted “Wondergirl” with a high-volume attack and heavy combinations before finally overwhelming her midway through the second round, stunning the Bangkok faithful in attendance.

Thongpoon secured the evening’s first performance bonus with his one-round demolition of Timur Chuikov in their strawweight Muay Thai clash.

The flashy and flamboyant Thai used a ruthlessly aggressive boxing attack to send his foe to the canvas three times in less than two minutes, punctuating the final knockdown with a thunderous right hand.
