ONE Championship returned this Friday with a varied offering and here are your ONE: Full Blast results. ONE: Full Blast is a tape-delayed event that emanated from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The show featured a consequential ONE Super Series main event between top-ranked Muay Thai contenders. Also, there was a riveting welterweight kickboxing contest as well as a few high-octane mixed martial arts bouts.
In the main event, #1-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Saemapetch Fairtex maintained his top ranking. The former ONE World Title challenger halted #3-ranked contender Kulabdam Sor Jor Piek Uthai. Saemapetch Fairtex did so with a debilitating body shot to win by first-round knockout.
Saemapetch and Kulabdam were quite measured to start the contest. They were carefully gauging each other at range and looking to create openings. After checking a kick from Kulabdam, the Fairtex star fired off with a left cross. The strike landed directly to the liver and folded his adversary. With less than a minute to go in the opening frame, Kulabdam could not continue. Saemapetch was awarded the stoppage victory after his crumpled opponent could not rise.
Xie Wei secures second-round TKO
In the co-feature, Xie Wei put together a comprehensive pugilistic performance. He bested promotional newcomer Kantharaj Agasa to win by technical knockout on the stool between rounds.
Xie showcased an incredible striking acumen all throughout the bout. Agasa continually tried to secure takedowns but was perpetually stuffed by Xie. Following the second frame, Agasa decided not to answer the bell for the third round.
In a firey ONE kickboxing battle among welterweights, Miles Simson won in a competitive unanimous decision victory over Santino Verbeek.
Promotional stalwart Edward Kelly narrowly survived a second-round submission attempt to eventually beat Ahmed Faress by split decision.
ONE Warrior Series product Anthony Do utilized a triangle choke to secure the victory. He notched that second-round submission win over Liang Hui in the event’s opening fight.
