Sagetdao Petpayathai To Continue His Martial Arts 'Rebirth' In Bangkok

Sagetdao _66a2834

Sagetdao Petpayathai is in the mood to get back on the winning track in his homeland at ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES.

After a blistering start to his mixed martial arts career, which brought three consecutive knockouts, the Evolve representative went the distance with Ma Jia Wen in June. Unfortunately, the multi-time Lumpinee and Rajadamnern Stadium Muay Thai World Champion lost via decision.

Now, his chance for redemption has arrived. His next bout has been confirmed to be in October, at Bangkok’s blockbuster ONE: KINGDOM OF HEROES.

At an open workout in Bangkok, Thailand, Sagetdao told the international media he was determined to make sure he would not go through a similar experience to his last match-up.

“This is a great opportunity for me to redeem myself. My last performance, I wasn’t at my best, and I feel I wasn’t able to showcase what I can really do in there,” he said.

“Now, the focus has been on sharpening my talent and making sure I learn from my mistakes in my last bout.”

Though there are opportunities for a man with his talents to compete in his ‘natural’ environment of ONE Super Series, the 31-year-old wants to succeed in his mixed martial arts career.

He added his aim is to showcase his legendary Muay Thai ability in match-ups under ONE’s global rules.

“To be able to showcase the beauty of my discipline, and combine it with the new skills I have learned in the cage, it’s a rebirth for me as a fighter.

“In my next bout, I hope to show everyone that I will just keep getting better with experience. My goal here is to become one of the very best.”
