A strawweight bout between Lito Adiwang and Danial Williams has been added to ONE Fight Night 19. The two will face off at Lumpinee Stadium on February 17th.

Adiwang (15-5) recently made a successful comeback after a year spent on the sidelines following knee surgery. He won two fights out of two in 2023 and a third win would put the Filipino back in the title mix at strawweight.

Williams (6-2) didn’t get to compete in MMA at all in 2023. He was busy challenging for titles in kickboxing, facing Superlek for the flyweight belt and Jonathan DiBella for the strawweight title.

He lost both but Williams, who also has a decision loss to Rodtang Jitmuangnon on his record, demonstrated he can face the best in the world in a striking match. He returns to MMA to take on an opponent who was in the top five before suffering a serious knee injury during his first fight with Jeremy Miado.


Bantamweight title

As previously announced the fight card at Lumpinee Stadium will be headlined by a bantamweight Muay Thai bout between champion Jonathan Haggerty and challenger Felipe Lobo. The Englishman also holds the kickboxing title and is on a six fight winning streak.

The event will take place on Saturday morning (local time) and be broadcast live in North America by Prime Video.

Immediate rematch

The card looks to consist primarily of Muay Thai fights. One of them is a rematch that has possibly been ordered to clear up some controversy.

The ending to the first fight between Saemapetch Fairtex and Mohamed Younes Rabah stirred up a lot of debate. The Algerian appeared to secure a first round finish courtesy of an illegal knee.

Saemapetch made a fast start to that fight, which took place at ONE Fight Night 17 in December. He dropped Rabah with a left hook just 90 seconds into the opening round at Lumpinee Stadium.

Rabah bounced back to knock down the Thai veteran. But the knee which finished the fight appeared to land when Saemapetch was already grounded.

All American

Also on to the card is an all American featherweight fight. Luke Lessei came up short against Jo Nattawut at ONE Fight Night 17 but put on a very impressive display.

He has been matched with compatriot Eddie Abasolo. The former boxer is coming off a decision loss to Sittichai Sitsongpeenong at ONE Friday Fights 22.
