Kingad, however, dictated the pace until the third and final round to notch a unanimous decision in front of an electric crowd.

In the main event, Fabricio Andrade defeated John  Lineker for the vacated Bantamweight World title by way of corner stoppage.

After three rounds of heavy-hitting blows, Andrade’s corner threw the towel before the start of the fourth salvo due to eye damage, preventing a more serious injury for the fighter with hands of stone.

The co-main event saw Tawanchai PK.Saenchai successfully defend his Featherweight Muay Thai championship against Jamal “Yeniceri” Yusupov in convincing fashion.

Yusupov ate a leg kick in the 49-second mark of the first frame and immediately buckled down to one knee, prompting the official to stop the match.
