ONE Championship boss Chatri Sityodtong wants to see a rematch between Rodtang Jitmuangnon and Superlek Kiatmookao in Qatar, as debate raged over a controversial main event in Bangkok on Friday.
Superlek beat Rodtang by unanimous decision inside a fevered Lumpinee Stadium at ONE Friday Fights 34, with the result seemingly hingeing on a knockdown from the former in the second round.
“The Iron Man” – whose flyweight Muay Thai title was no longer on the line after Superlek missed weight by 5lbs on Thursday – protested as the referee gave him a standing count.
