Smilla Sundell Folds Natalia Diachkova With Body Shot In ONE Fight Night 22 Main Event

ONE Championship, boasting the title of the largest martial arts organization globally, made its grand return to the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium with ONE Fight Night 22: Sundell vs. Diachkova.

In a stunning turn of events, 19-year-old Smilla Sundell, dubbed “The Hurricane,” clinched a dramatic comeback win against Natalia Diachkova. Diachkova kicked off the fight with a barrage of punches that initially put Sundell on the defensive, her face quickly showing the battle’s toll. Despite the onslaught, Sundell lived up to her nickname by ramping up her attack in the second round, landing a debilitating left hook to Diachkova’s body that cornered her, defenseless. Sundell’s relentless assault continued with a flurry of left hooks and knees, prompting referee Olivier Coste to end the misery.

Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Akbar Abdullaev celebrated his third consecutive victory in ONE Championship by defeating Halil Amir in a clash of unbeaten featherweight MMA talents. The fight was a grueling grappling contest, with both fighters vying for dominance. Abdullaev, unfazed by Amir’s taekwondo skills, managed to close the gap for takedowns. The momentum shifted in the second round when Abdullaev unleashed a powerful combination, culminating in a knockout left hook, sealing Amir’s fate just moments before the round ended.
