Jeremy Miado proved his first win against Miao Li Tao was no fluke as he asserted his domination over the Chinese, knocking him out again during ONE: NextGen on October 28 in Singapore.
Miado rained a barrage of punches to the head of a hapless Miao 50 seconds into the the second round to force the referee to halt the fight and win by technical knockout.
The “Jaguar” relied on his punching, firing multiple combinations to dominate Miao in the first round. The hits took its toll as the Chinese absorbed a bloodied nose.
Miado also attempted a jumping knee during the round that barely missed its target.
It was a flying knee that connected straight to Miao’s chin that knocked him out cold in the first fight on November 2019.
The Filipino fighter sprang up to start the second looking to time his attacks. And when Miao choose to slug it out, he cash in on an opening to record his second abbreviated finish over his rival.
A lightning-quick left hook connected but Miao contested it was an eye poke. Referee Justin Roberts, however, deemed it a legal punch.
While Miao is busy protesting, Miado capitalized the opportunity to launch at his foe.
A hard straight right followed by a thunderous hook to the body forced Miao to turned his back on Miado, who unleashed one more flurry of strikes until Roberts called off the fight.
Miado was making his return to The Circle for the first time since 2019 and registered his first ever winning streak in ONE Championship.
The win also marks Miado’s fourth stoppage victory in ONE and perhaps propel him to get a match against a top-five strawweight contender in his next outing.
Miado, who now fights out of Marrok Force MMA in Thailand, improved his MMA fight record to 10-4 while dropping Miao to 6-5.
