Rodtang Jitmuangnon’s fight style has catapulted him to the status of a great star thanks in large part to his historic run in ONE Championship.
Even if being the undisputed champion in the flyweight division of Muay Thai is an impressive feat, the fact that the champion is able to put on a show for the spectators each and every time has elevated his status as a transcendent figure in the sport.
When the reigning champion of a class is competing, it is almost impossible not to be entertained, and his relentless fighting style and taunting are just two additional reasons why he is a must-watch fighter.
As a part of his technique, he walks down opponents, swallows their greatest shots, and shrugs them off before shooting back with deadly effect. This is one of the reasons why his style is so popular with fans.
Rodtang was asked about his capacity to take harm when he stepped within the circle during an interview with CUTZRADIO. He responded by saying that the adrenaline makes him feel as though he is unstoppable.
The Thai megastar was quoted as saying:
“When I fight, I have a rush of excitement, and I never worry about being injured. My body has a tendency to try to absorb more impact during fights, which can lead to my injuring myself. I want to get knocked out in a fight so badly.”

When the flyweight Muay Thai king makes his return at ONE Friday Fights 34 on September 22, he will be facing the flyweight kickboxing champion Superlek in a dream match-up that fans have been waiting a long time to see. He will need to be able to withstand some huge strikes in order to win.
When going up against ‘The Kicking Machine,’ who is widely regarded as one of the most talented attackers in the world at the present time, there is no question that his speed and pressure will be tremendous benefits.
The 34th edition of ONE Friday Fights will be shown live and for free on the YouTube channel of ONE Championship.
