Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke celebrated his 37th birthday last week, but the Thai straweight shows no sign of slowing down as he maintained his perfect professional record with a hard-fought decision win over Yago Bryan at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Friday.

Their fight headlined “ONE: Pride of Lions,” but Dejdamrong’s ONE 115-pound title was not on the line because Bryan missed weight. The event was originally headlined by a welterweight title rematch between Ben Askren and Luis Santos, but that fight was cancelled after the Brazilian missed weight and then refused to negotiate with the champion for a catchweight contest, leaving ONE Championship CEO Victor Cui upset with the Santos’ lack of professionalism.

“It’s incredibly unprofessional for Sapo to be so unprepared and completely not make weight for this fight,” a “disgusted” Cui told MMAWeekly.com. “Askren put in the hard work, made weight, and it really is unbelievable to see Sapo be so unprofessional and have a complete disregard of what it means to be a professional fighter competing at the highest levels of MMA.”
