ONE Championship Muay Thai fighter Liam Harrison, sustained a knee injury in his fight against the defending champion at ONE on Prime Video 1, and he is not happy with the way some people reacted to the fight ending injury he suffered.

Harrison, nicknamed “Hitman” is a veteran of Muay Thai and Kickboxing, with a 90 wins (50 KOs), 25 losses and 2 draws record, and after winning five straight bouts for ONE Championship, he was qualified to fight for ONE’s Bantamweight world title.
Defending champion, Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, with a staggering 264 wins, 54 losses, and 10 draws had defended the belt a staggering five times since 2018, going into the fight with Harrison.

Gaiyanghadao earned that sixth title defense by low-kick knockout – a knockout that saw the Englishman suffering an injury to his knee.

Following the fight, some fans mocked Harrison and celebrated his injury! »The Hitman« took to Twitter (the Tweet has since been deleted) and explained how he did not understand that kind of reaction:

“The moment my knee went and my heart broke. Knew the fight was finished right here before it even got going. Seen so many people absolutely loving it too, imagine being that bitter and twisted that they are loving the fact I’m going to be out for months and can’t earn a living.”

Combat sports are fan driven, which means that people will be passionate about the outcome of a fight, but it is also a dangerous endeavor that sees athletes put their bodies on the line, so Liam Harrison makes a good point about how wrong it is for people to mock this kind of injury. His road to recovery has already started, and we will have the pleasure of watching one of Europe’s best Muay Thai fighters on the big stage again soon.
Everybody at FIGHT SPORTS wishes “The Hitman” a speedy recovery.
