Rodtang Jitmuangnon has another bout booked. The Thai star will be fighting two times in the next three months and also needs to find time to fit a wedding in.

Earlier this week Rodtang announced he was engaged to Aida Looksaikongdin. A few days earlier he had been booked to face Superlek Kiatmoo 9 in a flyweight kickboxing title fight at ONE Fight Night 8.

Rodtang can add another date to his busy schedule. He will be defending his flyweight Muay Thai title at ONE Fight Night 10 which is booked for Colorado on May 5th.

Unknown quantity

Tabares will be making his ONE Championship debut and the Mexican is something of an unknown quantity. But Rodtang is very familiar to fight fans after winning 13 kickboxing and Muay Thai fights out of 13 for the promotion.

The bout is booked for just six weeks after his fight with Superlek. But Thai fighters are used to competing around ten times a year so this won’t bother Rodtang at all.

The sole loss of Rodtang’s ONE Championship career came in a mixed rules fight. He was submitted by Demetrious Johnson in the second round on the promotion’s anniversary event.

Other than that he has been completely dominant. Rodtang faces a tough test against Superlek at ONE Fight Night 8, it will be the first time he has faced a fellow Thai on one of these cards.

Superlek is a former Lumpinee champion and was more successful than Rodtang in the Thai stadiums. But since signing for ONE Championship Rodtang’s rise has been stellar.

Trilogy fight

As previously announced Demetrious Johnson will face Adriano Moraes for the third time in a fight which will headline ONE Championship’s US debut. The American will be putting his flyweight title on the line.

Johnson (24-4-1) is regarded as being the best flyweight of all time. He successfully defended his UFC 125lbs belt 11 times, a promotional record, before signing for ONE Championship in a swap with Ben Askren.

He won the flyweight Grand Prix to earn a shot at champion Adriano Moraes. But Johnson came up short first time around, getting stopped by the Brazilian in the second round at ONE on TNT in 2021.

Johnson would get his revenge at ONE on Prime Video 1 earlier this year. He finished Moreas with a flying knee in the second round to capture the second title of his career.

Moraes (20-4) saw his three fight winning streak ended that night. He will be looking to become the ONE Championship flyweight title holder for the fourth time.

UFC veteran

Meanwhile Ahmed Mujtaba has been matched with a UFC veteran at ONE Fight Night 10. The Pakistani will be travelling to Colorado to take on Sage Northcutt

Mujtaba (10-2) is coming off two extremely impressive first round stoppage wins. At ONE 163 last year he showcased his grappling skills to submit BJJ black belt Abraão Amorim with a triangle choke.

By contrast Northcutt (10-3) was knocked out in the opening round of his ONE Championship debut in 2019. Opponent Cosmo Alexandre has long since retired but the American has been out of action after suffering some serious facial injuries in that fight.

Northcutt had been one of the UFC’s biggest stars and was on a three fight winning streak when he left the promotion. His decision to sign with ONE Championship made headlines in the MMA world and he will be dropping back down to lightweight for this fight.

Atomweight fight

An atomweight fight has been added to the ONE Fight Night 10 card. Stamp Fairtex will be taking on Alyse Anderson at the 1stBank Centre on May 5th.

Last year Stamp (9-2) won the promotion’s atomweight Grand Prix and earned a title shot but was submitted in the second round by Angela Lee. Anderson (6-2) is coming off a come from behind submission win over Asha Roka at ONE 157.

Stamp took part in a strawweight kickboxing bout last month, beating Supergirl Jaroonsakgym by decision. But she will be returning to MMA and appears to have put her ambitions to win a belt in another sport on the backburner.
