“I am Sparta” – Jonathan Haggerty’s trademark teep kick sends Rodtang soaring in slow motion.

The infamous teep kick that Jonathan Haggerty has been known to throw around the ring has knocked out a number of the most skilled competitors in ONE Championship, including the Muay Thai superstar Rodtang.

Seven months after his amazing first-round knockout of Nong-O Hama, ‘The General’ will return to the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok on November 3 to compete for the ONE bantamweight Muay Thai world championship. Fabricio Andrade is the current bantamweight MMA world champion, and this time around, Haggerty will be competing against him for the vacant bantamweight kickboxing belt. Haggerty hopes to add kickboxing gold to his collection of accolades.

Ahead of their confrontation inside the Mecca of Muay Thai, ONE Championship takes a look back at ONE of Jonathan Haggerty’s most effective weapons while he was competing inside the ring.

“Jonathan Haggerty ties them up and puts them on ROPES ” When “The General” faces Fabricio Andrade on November 3 for the ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Championship at ONE Fight Night 16 on primevideo, will it be possible for him to become a two-time ONE World Champion?

Fans from across the world took to the comments section on Instagram to laud Haggerty’s impressive frontkick in the style of a Spartan warrior.
