As the anticipation builds for ONE Championship's groundbreaking event in Qatar, fight enthusiasts are in for an extraordinary treat with the return of Muay Thai legend Nong-O Hama. Set to face Vladimir Kuzmin at ONE 166: Qatar, this clash of titans promises to be a spectacle, broadcasting live from the prestigious Lusail Sports Arena on March 1.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest Muay Thai competitors in history, Nong-O Hama boasts an impressive track record, having clinched ten consecutive victories in ONE Championship. This remarkable feat includes eight consecutive World Title wins, punctuated by five consecutive knockout triumphs, solidifying his status as an unmatched force in the division.

However, Nong-O faced setbacks in 2023, relinquishing his throne to Jonathan Haggerty and suffering another defeat against Nico Carrillo in December. Undeterred, the Thai icon holds the #2 spot in the rankings, and his path to redemption will be challenged by the formidable Vladimir Kuzmin.

With a 2-2 record in the world's largest martial arts organization, Russian standout Kuzmin has proven himself as a relentless striker, pushing elite competitors like Jonathan Haggerty and Muangthai PK Saenchai to their limits. Despite losing only by a majority decision and a split decision, respectively, Kuzmin sees this bout as an opportunity to elevate his recognition in the martial arts world.

For Nong-O Hama, it's a chance at redemption, a journey back to the pinnacle of glory. For Kuzmin, it's an opportunity to make a significant statement with a victory over a name as illustrious as Nong-O. 

As the two warriors prepare to step into the ring at ONE 166: Qatar, fans can expect nothing short of a thrilling showcase of skill, determination, and the heart of true martial artists.
