Celest Hansen is coming off the first loss of her ONE Championship career. But it doesn’t sound like the Australian is too down in the dumbs after dropping a decision to Yau Pui Yu.

She shared a photo of herself on a deserted beach in Phuket. Hansen, who normally fights out of the Fairtex Gym in Pattaya, appears to be visiting the island on the opposite side of Thailand on holiday.

Underneath the photo Hansen declared that,

I love my big juicy ass.

Spirited effort

Coming into the fight with Yau Pui Yu at ONE Friday Fights 27 she had won two out of two on the weekly series. Hansen won a Road to ONE tournament at Lumpinee Stadium to earn a contract with the promotion.

A win over the fighter from Hong Kong would have established Hansen as one of the top female strawweight fighters on the roster. But Yu won by decision despite a spirited effort from the Australian.

It will be some consolation to Hansen to know that she lost to an opponent who has defeated all comers on ONE Championship’s Friday night events. Yu has won four out of four and could be in contention for a show at the strawweight title.

Lights are calling

Pattaya has plenty of beach front for Hansen to pose in too. But it sounds like she misses Phuket,

“I’m so happy to be back in Phuket, my home. There’s times I wish I could still live here, I have so many friends and things to do, I never feel lonely, but life has different plans, I know In the future I can return, but for now the lights are calling my name.”

One thing Phuket doesn’t have is the Fairtex Gym. Hansen’s career has been launched from the facility in Pattaya that promotes fights as well as training some of the best fighters in the country.

A few year’s ago female fighters were not allowed to step foot inside the Lumpinee Stadium ring. Hansen was one of the first and she has become a regular at Thailand’s most famous Muay Thai venue.

So while the loss to Yui was a setback it is unlikely to prove to be terminal for her future career prospects. The Australian will surely be back in the Lumpinee Stadium ring before too long but right now she is enjoying her holiday.
