The full fight card for ONE Friday Fights 18 is out. As previously announced reigning ONE Championship strawweight Muay Thai champion Smilla Sundell has been booked to face Milana Bjelogrlic in a non title fight at Lumpinee Stadium on Friday
Teenage champion Sundell has waited over a year to make the first defence of the title she won by beating Jackie Buntan at ONE 156. Her opponent will be making her promotional debut and is based at Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket.
This catchweight contest is set for 128lbs, slightly above the strawweight limit and will be contested under kickboxing rules:
In the main event Tyson Harrison takes on Pongsiri PK Saenchai in a bantamweight bout. The Australian is coming off a stoppage win over Rambo Mor Rattanabandit at ONE Friday Fights 11, a performance which earned him a $10,000 USD bonus.
Pongsiri has been on the roster since 2020 and previously challenged for the featherweight Muay Thai title. He is coming off a decision win over Ferzan Cicek at ONE Friday Fights 2.
