Smilla Sundell became the youngest title-holder in ONE Championship history after a dominant unanimous decision over Jackie Buntan on Friday night in Singapore. The Asian martial arts promotion’s inaugural strawweight Muay Thai champion at just 17 years old, Sundell left the game Filipino-American badly bruised, with her left eye almost swollen shut, and two hematomas on her forehead. Based out of the famed Fairtex gym in Pattaya, Thailand, the Swedish prodigy was lost for words and overcome with emotion after being told she had picked up a US$50,000 performance bonus for her efforts at Singapore Indoor Stadium. “It feels great, I’m so happy right now – it’s my biggest dream coming true,” Sundell told ONE commentator Mitch Chilson in a post-fight interview.

Oh my god. Thank you, thank you.” Buntan stayed in the fight early on, but going into the championship rounds her face was a mess while the much longer, rangier Sundell continued to punish her with relentless pressure. “The Hurricane” – who made her ONE debut in February with an impressive TKO of Diandra Martin – was setting everything up with her jab. Buntan was always on her bike, circling away as she tried to time a spinning elbow, but Sundell was wise to it and never let up. “It went as I thought it would,” Sundell added. “I like to push my opponent. I did what I was supposed to do.” “Fairtex – we did it. Thank you so much for all the support and love,” she added.
