Two Athletes Take Home US$50,000 Performance Bonuses At ONE Fight Night 7
A pair of superstars earned a well-deserved US$50,000 performance bonus each for their handiwork at ONE Fight Night 7: Lineker vs. Andrade II inside the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday, February 24.
ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong awarded bonuses to BJJ black belt Tommy Langaker and defending featherweight Muay Thai king Tawanchai PK Saenchai after their electrifying performances.
In the co-main event, Tawanchai hardly broke a sweat during his first ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Title defense.
The Thai phenom stopped challenger Jamal Yusupov inside one minute to earn a performance bonus and add an unforgettable moment to his highlight reel.
Tawanchai scored a rare leg-kick knockout just 49 seconds into the fight thanks to a devastating, femur-snapping shot that left “Yeniceri” unable to walk, much less fight on.
Langaker took home the first bonus of the night after needing less than three minutes to dispatch multiple-time Sambo World Champion Uali Kurzhev in their lightweight submission grappling showdown.
The Norwegian attacked relentlessly from the opening bell and worked his way into a deep leg entanglement to secure a beautiful heel hook finish and a US$50,000 check.
