In another epic clash between two stand-up artists, Filipino Jeremy Miado was on the losing end this time around, as Thai legend Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke got the better of him, Friday evening during ONE: Call to Greatness at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The stoppage came at the 2:28 mark of the second stanza, after a turtled-up Miado could not stop the knees rained on him by DSA.
Miado – who knocked DSA out last March 24, 2018 – fell to 8-4 with the loss, while the fighter known as Kru Rong went up to 10-4.
Right from the get-go, the two athletes exchanged fists and fire. Miado was able to connect early, even busting DSA up with a huge overhand right with 2:36 left in the bout.
Seeing blood, the Filipino known as Jaguar revved up his aggression, taking Sor Amnuaysirichoke down afterwards. The Thai was able to reverse it, however, getting the mount and going for a half-nelson hold to stifle Miado.
Miado was visibly gassed in the second round, as Sor Amnuaysirichoke fired off combinations. The Filipino tried to stop the flurry by going for a take down, but DSA timed it perfectly, sprawling the attempt.
With Miado turtled up, the Muay Thai artists poured in knees that reached a count of 20 before the official stopped the bout.
The Miado-Sor Amnuaysirichoke series now stands at 1-1, both via vicious finishes. A third bout is expected to settle the score.
