It was obviously a hot day in Bangkok today, we think it is probably a hot day in Bangkok every day. But rising ONE Championship star Nat Wondergirl took the opportunity to get outside and so some work on her tan.
The 23 year old is based in Bangkok and fights out of Marrok Force. She recently made a successful MMA debut having already enjoyed success as a Muay Thai fighter.
Her sister, Supergirl, is also on the ONE Championship roster. Wondergirl will be looking to build on her 1-0 record this year but today the That star was just taking it easy and catching some rays:

Wondergirl celebrated wildly after submitting Zeba Bano with a first round armbar at ONE 157 in May. She might have only made her MMA debut this year but the Muay Thai veteran has been studying the ground game for several years.
She holds a blue belt in BJJ and has reportedly won medals at several grappling tournaments in Thailand. It makes her an exciting prospect because she has more striking experience than anyone in the strawweight division.
Wondergirl will be looking to follow the example set by her former teammate Stamp Fairtex. She has taken the atomweight division by storm, winning the Grand Prix and challenging for the title.
"Wondergirl" 🇹🇭 is BACK!

Wondergirl will be hoping to have a similar impact in the strawweight division. She and Stamp used to train together at Fairtex but she left for Marrok Force after falling out with the Pattaya based gym.
The BJJ coach from Fairtex, DJ Jackson, also left the gym in acrimonious circumstances and is now working at Marrok Force. So Wondergirl will be training with some familiar faces.
There are plenty of potential opponents for Wondergirl in the strawweight division including Tiffany Teo, Michelle Nicolini, Dayane Cardoso and Ayaka Miura. Xiong Jing Nan holds the title but the photogenic Thai will probably need more than one win if she wants a shot at the champion.
She might not currently have a fight booked but Wondergirl looks in great shape and we can’t wait to see her in the cage again!
