All it took is one punch.
Pinoy mixed martial artist Jeremy "The Jaguar" Miado scored his first, and biggest win inside the ONE Championship cage Saturday evening in Bangkok, Thailand after knocking out hometown favorite and former ONE champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke in the co-main event of ONE: Iron Will.
Miado, 7-2 in his MMA career, landed a vicious wild right hook that landed flush on DSA's chin, knocking the Thai star out cold in the first round.

While the knockout itself was impressive, making it even more noteworthy is the fact that Amnuaysirichoke was one of the biggest Muay Thai legends to ever transition into MMA. Being a three-time Lumpinee champion, he knows quite a bit about the standup game.
"It’s my first victory in ONE Championship. I can’t explain what I am feeling right now. All the hard work in the gym has finally paid off. I am really grateful.” Miado said following the match. “It is truly an honor to face a talented competitor and a former world champion like Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke. I am so satisfied as to how I performed. However, I still need to fix a few things as I continue to climb the strawweight ladder of ONE Championship. I am excited about how the future will unfold as I continue my career in ONE Championship.”
