Vienot recently fought at the ONE 157: Petchmorakot vs. Vienot event, where he lost an extremely close fight due to a questionable count. He dumped and swept Tawanchai so many times that it was difficult for many fans to understand why he did not get the W.
But according to the rules of ONE Championship, a fight can never be a draw, and if one fighter has been knocked down or has received a count, he will lose.
So according to the rules it was the right decision!
