Featuring MMA, Muay Thai and kickboxing, “ONE: No Surrender” will take place in Bangkok, Thailand on July 31, 2020. It marks the first flagship event of ONE Championship after going on hiatus due to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its expanded return to closed-door, audience-free live events.
Because of the travel restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the “ONE: No Surrender” fight card will feature only athletes who are currently in Thailand. One of the MMA matches is a women’s atomweight contest between Srisen and Stamp.
