Yodkritsada Sor Sommai and Thepthaksin Sor Sornsing went to war in the main event of ONE Friday fights 10 at Lumpinee stadium on Friday night. This catchweight contest was set for 132lbs and saw both men go toe to toe for the whole three rounds.
Thepthaksin looked to outwork Yodkritsada early on, landing with sharp punches and solid kicks. His opponent has the traditional clinch and knee style and began slowly warming into the fight, but with the three round format, just didn’t get going in time.
Thepthaksin snapped his head back several times in the second round with some fast punch combinations and managed to open up more than one cut on Yodkritsada’s face.
Yodkritsada came back strongly in the final round, as the pace started to show in Thepthaksin, but the younger fighter held on to take the decision win and earn a $10,000 USD bonus.

Best of the rest
Anton Petrov made a strong debut statement when he demolished the tough and experienced Luca Lombardo. Both started aggressively, opening up with hard hands and elbows but the Bulgarian’s power soon became apparent as he dropped his opponent for an eight count.
Shortly after a huge elbow from Petrov opened a up long, nasty cut on the Italian fighters forehead and the fight was called off. The fight was fought at a catchweight of 160lbs but the Bulgarian looks like he could be a force to be reckoned with in the featherweight division.
In the only MMA fight of the night Ivan Parshikov took on Yu Karino. The Japanese bantamweight started fast taking the fight to the ground and looking for a triangle but his opponent was too slick on the ground.
Parshikov escaped and was able to finish the fight by knee bar with the stoppage coming at the 0:50 mark. He improves to 10-3 while Karino drops to 8-3.
