The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), sent shockwaves throughout the state-of-the-art Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with an exciting evening of world-class martial arts action. ONE: DESTINY OF CHAMPIONS featured a series of thrilling contests, punctuated by a compelling headline bout that earned a warm reception from the passionate fans in attendance. In the main event, Muay Thai legend Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex authored a fantastic first-round knockout, making quick work of opponent Luis Regis.
In the co-main event of the evening, Kiamrian Abbasov of Kyrgyzstan made quick work of hometown favourite Agilan “Alligator” Thani of Malaysia, finishing his opponent midway through the very first round. At the sound of the opening bell, Abbasov immediately went for a body lock on Thani, taking matters to the ground. Every time Thani would try to get back up to his feet, Abbasov chained his takedowns together to bring it back to the mat. Capitalizing on an opening, Abbasov took Thani’s back and latched onto a rear naked choke to end the night early.
