Smilla “The Hurricane” Sundell just lost her ONE Championship Muay Thai strawweight title as she missed weight.

The Swede was 1,5 lbs over the 125 lbs limit. That’s according to reports from Sportskeeda.

Sundell’s team even thought of cutting her hair off to make weight, but the hair reportedly only weighed a quarter of a pound.

Eventually, her team decided to stop trying to reach the weight limit and instead vacate the strap. Sundell became the fourth fighter to ever lose a title on the scale in the promotion’s history.
