ONE Championship delivered yet another highlight-reel-worthy finish that has to be seen to be believed.
In addition to its monthly events featured on Amazon Prime Video, ONE has taken up residency inside Bangkok’s legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium since January. The weekly Friday Fights series has showcased some of the best up-and-coming talent in the world, giving fans a decades worth of highlights in the span of a few months.
ONE Friday Fights 26 delivered on the goods yet again with an absolutely insane matchup between Iran’s Mohammed Siasarani and Thailand’s Satanfah Sitsonpeenong. Just past the halfway point of the first round, Satanfah uncorked a massive right hand that caught Siasarani on the button, causing him to faceplant on the canvas. Just when it looked to be all over, Siasarani miraculously bounced back up, answering the referee’s 10-count.
Going in for the kill, Satanfah threw a flying front kick that hit nothing, but wind. It was then that Siasarani unloaded his own right hand, connecting clean and sending Satanfah crashing to the canvas. Satanfah struggled to get back to his feet, but eventually answered the referee’s count. From there, Siasarani swarmed his opponent, unleashing an onslaught of strikes to score what many online are calling the comeback of the year.

ONE Championship fans immediately compared the comeback to Liam ‘Hitman’ Harrison’s stunning first-round rally against Muangthai PK.Saenchai at ONE 156 last year.
Unfortunately, Mohammed Siasarani’s post-fight celebration didn’t land quite as well as his right hand, but we’ll forgive him since he delivered one of the best knockouts of the year.
THIS IS WHY ONE CHAMPIONSHIP IS THE BEST
