Luckily for “Mini T,” he faces a fellow hard-hitter who promises to bring the heat to his next outing.

The Thai-Australian dynamo meets Lito Adiwang in a strawweight MMA bout. The fight takes place at ONE Fight Night 19 on Prime Video live in U.S. primetime from the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on February 16.

“It’s going to be an absolute banger. Fire meets fire. Big respect to Lito. I’m so happy to get a match with him,” Williams said.

“It’s an honor to fight him. He’s a guy that’s just going to bring the fire, and he’s going to be a hard opponent.”

Acknowledging the significant threat that “Thunder Kid” poses, Williams embraces the challenge with open arms.

“He’s someone that throws with intent, and that’s what excites me because it almost goes back to why I love martial arts. It’s the art of war,” the Scrappy MMA and Kao Sok Muay Thai representative said.

“I feel like this is an art-of-war fight. This is someone who wants to kill me and I want to kill him as well. It’s a good style of fight that I enjoy.”

Beyond merely surviving the storm Lito Adiwang brings, Danial Williams is confident that he can weather the intensity and turn the tables.

“I think I’m just going to meet him in the middle. If he’s going to try countering me, I’ll try countering back and get him with a flurry,” Williams said.

“I just want to be busy, have a higher work rate, and when I hit him, hit him hard. Show him that if he hits me, I’m not going to back down.”

“Mini T” is confident in his own skills and envisions a path to victory by finding the finish when the opportunity arises.

“I’ll be disappointed if I don’t get the finish. So, round one, round two, round three, it doesn’t matter. But I always fight for the finish, and I’ll make sure I fight the best fight I can,” he said.
