After the conclusion of the 140-pound Muay Thai superfight that took place last Friday inside of the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, ONE Championship has produced a good divide among fans of combat sports and personalities from around the world.
After three rounds of intense combat, the match, which has been called “one of the biggest fights in the history of Muay Thai,” was decided in favor of the ONE flyweight kickboxing world champion. Some spectators were pleased with the outcome, while others felt that the ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion should have prevailed, and yet others considered that the fight should have ended in a draw.
In a little less than a week after the back-and-forth on social media, the largest martial arts organization in the world has ignited another discussion among fans by asking them who the reigning ONE flyweight Muay Thai world champion should face next. This time, the question was posed in the context of determining who should challenge the champion for the title.
The caption on the post on Instagram read:
“Rodtang is moving forward with full force Who will succeed Robert Downey Jr. as “The Iron Man?” #ONEChampionship #MartialArts #MuayThai” “@rodtang_jimungnon”
The comments area became the site of more conversations as a result. Fans such as @spectre_e6, @yazhiboi, and @chanestela, as well as AEW star Malakai Black, shared their thoughts on the matter. A rematch between Rodtang and Superlek, a trilogy fight between Rodtang and Jonathan Haggerty, or even a megafight between Rodtang and Takeru were all proposed as possible outcomes of the ongoing discussion.
“Haggerty, Haggerty, you’re dealing with a different beast right now. I feel like that was the sharpest I’ve seen him fight, and I’d love for him to take that into a rematch with Rodtang.” He has shown an enormous amount of change with that most recent fight. I feel like it was the sharpest I’ve seen him fight.

There is an abundance of choice available in ONE Championship as a result of the stacked and high-quality roster of competitors. Any fight that Rodtang has with one of the aforementioned opponents is guaranteed to be a knockout and an absolute must-see.
