ONE Fight Night 9: Nong-O vs. Haggerty will feature another thrilling World Title match at Bangkok, Thailand’s famed Lumpinee Stadium. Nong-O Hama, a living legend and eight-time ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion, will battle Jonathan Haggerty, a former ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion, in the main event. Fight fans can expect an exciting firefight in this much awaited contest.
Nong-O is currently on a terrific winning streak and age seems to be just a number for the Thai legend. Nong-O, who is currently 36-years old is coming off of a third-round knockout over Russia’s Alaverdi Ramazanov at ONE Friday Fights 1 in January. With that terrific knockout, the Thai legend has improved his record to an impressive 10-0. Nong-O has successfully established himself as one of the most decorated Muay Thai fighters in the world and the greatest Muay Thai fighter in ONE Championship as since winning his first title in 2019, he has been on a tear and has defended his ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai title for a record seven times.
On the other hand, Great Britain’s Jonathan Haggerty is moving up in weight class to challenge for the bantamweight title. The previous flyweight title holder has shown that he deserves a title shot against Nong-O. In his last fight, he defeated Vladimir Kuzmin in the catchweight bout of 148 pounds and showcased the whole world that he ready for the bigger weight class. Haggerty also holds a win over Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and Joseph Lasiri. He has also gone toe to toe against Rodtang Jitmuangnon, who is considered one of the greatest Muay Thai fighters of all time.
Where to bet and who wins in the fight between Nong-O and Jonathan Haggerty?
Finding an MMA betting site offering One Championship betting is quite easy. While the focus of these websites tends to be on the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), betting markets on other big MMA organizations like Bellator and ONE Championship are almost always available.
Predicting the winner of the fight is much tougher. Most MMA Betting Sites give a slight edge to Nong-O, who is naturally the bigger fighter and also is the current kingpin of ONE’s Bantamweight division. Nong-O’s last loss in Muay Thai came back in 2015 and ever since then, the Thai legend has raked up consecutive wins and is a whole different fighter than he was eight years ago. Heading into this fight, Haggerty will have significant size disadvantage and Nong-O could very well get a stoppage win in this fight.
