Luke Lessei describes the odd experience of face-to-face competition with ‘idol’ Jo Nattawut in his ONE debut as “full circle.”

Luke Lessei’s highly anticipated debut in the ONE Championship, which will take place on December 8 at ONE Fight Night 17, will not only provide him with the chance to exhibit his skills on a stage that is recognized all over the world, but it will also be an experience that cannot be described as real for him.

In the co-main event of the all-Muay Thai card, Lessei is slated to face Jo Nattawut inside the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. It is a coincidence that Nattawut was one of Lessei’s idols when he was younger.

In a recent post that was released by ONE Championship, he disclosed the information regarding the situation in advance of his debut fight which would be held under the umbrella of the largest martial arts organization in the world.

“The people you look up to become your competitors. Jo Nattawut was a show that I used to watch when I was in high school. Coming full circle, he is my very first bout in the ONE Championship.

The American athlete, who is 27 years old, demonstrated that it is possible for an athlete to eventually compete against their heroes if they continue to put in a lot of effort and continue to get more skilled in their field.

The famous Lumpinee Boxing Stadium will serve as the location for the live broadcast of ONE Fight Night 17: Kryklia vs. Roberts exclusively on Prime Video. All Prime Video subscribers in North America have access to the complete card at no additional cost.
