Cebuano mixed martial artist Jimmy 'The Silencer" dropped his fifth-straight fight after getting stopped by decorated Thai kickboxer Sagetdao 'Deadly Star' Petpayathai in the first round at ONE Championship: Warriors of the World at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.
Yabo stood and traded with Petpayathai, absorbing some solid kicks, before getting trapped in the former Lumpinee champion's clinch.
From there, Petpayathai unloaded a vicious knee that sent Yabo crumbling to the mat and the referee stepped in to stop the fight.
The stoppage came in at the 2:44 mark of the first round.
Yabo drops to 5-6 in his MMA career, while Petpayathai remains perfect in his three MMA bouts so far.
