Rodtang Jitmuangnon defeated Petchdam Petchyindee Academy by majority decision Friday to retain the flyweight muay thai world championship in the main event of the ONE Championship "No Surrender" card at IMPACT Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

Rodtang has successfully defended the belt three times since winning it from Jonathan Haggerty last August. He knocked off Walter Goncalves in his first defense before beating Haggerty in a rematch.

The "Iron Man" owns a 263-42-10 career record after 12 wins in his last 13 fights.

Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy headlined the undercard with his victory by majority decision over Yodsanklai Fairtex to retain the featherweight muay thai world championship.

It marked the fourth straight win for Petchmorakot, who defeated Pongsiri PK Saenchaimuaythaigym in the inaugural featherweight title bout in February.

He improved his career record to 162-34-2 with Friday's effort.
