We’ve got ourselves a SUPER FIGHT! 🤯 Sitthichai returns to Muay Thai against pound-for-pound star Tawanchai atop a LOADED card on 27 August! @killerbeemma #ONEBattleground3 #WeAreONE #ONEChampionship pic.twitter.com/g3cJRqOabe

The top of the marquee attraction has shifted a bit here in lieu of COVID 19 issues.
Saemapetch Fairtex had to drop out of the bout after one of his cornermen tested positive for the coronavirus per Asian MMA.
Sittichai Sitsongpeenong pivots to Muay Thai and takes on Tawanchai PK.Saenchai Muaythaigym. He takes the place of Fairtex after his kickboxing bout with Tayfun Ozcan fell out due to injury last week.
Sittichai has been competing in kickboxing for the last seven years.
But the decorated Lumpinee and Thailand champion has an elite level resume in Muay Thai. Experience that smoothly facilitates taking on this sort of task on short notice.
Also of note in an attention-grabbing Atomweight affair, Bi Nguyen tests skills against Jenelyn Olsim.
Olsim had a pair of contests on the ONE Warrior Series developmental circuit. She went .500 there before winning her main roster debut in her last outing.
On the heels of that Maira Mazar victory, the Team Lakay product will now make her first fighting foray as an Atomweight.
Nguyen returns to the ONE Circle after her polarizing decision win over Ritu Phogat at ONE: Dangal.
Killer Bee looks to put together back-to-back victories and advance even further in the divisional hierarchy.
