Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado became the lone bright spot for the Philippines in "ONE: Iron Will" after pulling off a stunner against one of Thailand’s most decorated striker at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand Saturday night.

Miado pieced together a potent combination to knock the lights out of former ONE strawweight champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke in the first round of the card’s co-headliner.

The Jaguar used his longer reach and superior speed against the shorter Amnuaysirichoke who was caught by a well-time right hook to the jaw.

The hit was good enough to send the Thai unconscious to the canvas.

With the victory, Miado snapped a 2-fight setback to improve his record to 7 wins and 2 losses. 

Amnuaysirichoke, a 3-time Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai world champion with over 25 years of competitive experience, fell to his 4th MMA defeat in 12 fights.

Miado’s victory made up for the losses of fellow Filipinos Richard Corminal and Robin Catalan in the same card.
