Seksan Or Kwanmuang finally earned a US$100,000 main roster ONE Championship contract with a fifth-straight win – and a fifth consecutive performance bonus – at Lumpinee Stadium.

The 34-year-old Thai stopped Isaac Araya in the main event of ONE Friday Fights 29 in Bangkok.

“The Man Who Yields To No One” twice dropped his opponent in the second round, with the Spaniard failing to answer the referee’s count the second time.

“This is my goal, my objective, I always come to bring the best fight. I will yield to no one and I want the world to know how well I can fight,” Seksan told ONE commentator Mitch Chilson in a post-fight interview in the ring.
