Wondergirl Jaroonsakgym is set to make her MMA debut next month. The Muay Thai veteran takes on Zeba Bano at ONE 157.
The event is booked for the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 20th. Wondergirl began working on her ground game before her acrimonious split with Fairtex and appears to hold a blue belt in BJJ:

She has been able to continue working on her submission skills at Marrok Force in Bangkok. The gym is home to Denice Zamboanga, who also used to train at Fairtex, and has an MMA program.
Her opponent comes into the contest with a very impressive record. Bano is listed as 6-0 although the bouts in question almost all appear to have been organized by her gym in India.
From the limited footage available it seems her opponents were not particularly well prepared. That definitely won’t be the case with Wondergirl who has world class striking skills and has been preparing for her MMA debut for years.

As previously announced Petchmorakot Petchyindee will defend his featherweight Muay Thai title against Jimmy Vienot at ONE 157. Meanwhile Prajanchay PKSaenchaigym will be making the first defence of his strawweight Muay Thai title against Joseph Lasiri.
The event consists predominantly of Muay Thai bouts and will feature the quarter finals of the flyweight Grand Prix. But two lightweight submission grappling bouts have been booked with Garry Tonon taking on Tye Ruotolo and Shinya Aoki going up against Kade Ruotolo.
The sole kickboxing bout currently on the card pits the hard hitting Rade Opacic against Guto Inocente. Also added to the event is an alternate bout for the flyweight Grand Prix with Panpayak Jitmuangnon taking on Josue Cruz.
