The penultimate bonus winner of the night was 21-year-old Rak Erawan, who defeated Chusap Sor Salachee with a swarm of punches just over a minute into their 116-pound catchweight fight.
Thongpoon PK Saenchai also received a bonus from Chatri after deflating Tomorrow Kiatsongrit with punches just 24 seconds in a 118-pound catchweight bout. The 25-year-old, who has his name tattooed across his chest, thanked the ONE boss profusely in his post-fight interview.
The first bonus winner of the night was Yod-IQ PK Saenchai, who won his bantamweight Muay Thai bout with Samuel Bielen by second-round TKO. The 20-year-old laid out plans to use the money to build himself a house.

Sangtiennoi, who defeated Sherzod Kabutov by unanimous-decision in a 136-pound catchweight Muay Thai contest, and Russia's Ivan Parshikov who submitted Japan's Yu Karino in less than a minute in a bantamweight MMA bout - though neither man earned a bonus.
