ONE: Next Gen Results (Stamp and Ritu advance to GP Finals)

ONE Championship returned to the Singapore Indoor Stadium with another martial arts extravaganza. Here are your ONE: Next Gen Results.

The fistic fireworks were broadcast live on Friday, October 29th. The event featured a pair of combustible kickboxing contests as well as a clash between unbeaten MMA heavyweights. Also, there was a firey rematch between strawweights and the semifinal bouts of the ONE Womenโ€™s Atomweight World Grand Prix.

ONE: Next Gen

In the main event, former two-sport ONE Championship titleholder Stamp Fairtex showcased superior all-around technique. The number three contender kept Grand Prix alternate Julie Mezabarba at distance for basically the full bout duration. She showed a sophisticated understanding of the range en route to a unanimous decision win.

Also, Stamp showed off her ever-growing grappling game. The former kickboxing and Muay Thai champ executed a beautiful sweep to full mount sequence in the latter stages of the contest. The cumulative effort punched Stamp’s ticket to the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix Championship Final.

In the co-feature, #4-ranked atomweight Ritu Phogat showcased her grappling proficiency against Grand Prix alternate Jenelyn Olsim. The unanimous decision win resulted in Phogat filling out the other side of the Atomweight Grand Prix finals.

Olsim was crafty in the standup and on the mat at times. But Phogat was largely able to impose her will and execute her game plan overall.

Phogat versus Fairtex is set for Grand Prix gold and will solidify the next challenger for Angela Lee’s belt.

Hulking heavyweights and Kickboxing fireworks

Iraj Azizpour illustrated his champion-level kickboxing resume in his ONE Championship debut. He bested Anderson “Braddock” Silva via unanimous decision over three stimulating rounds.

Azizpour dropped Silva with a left-high kick in the first frame. But Silva turned it on thereafter and certainly had some moments despite the unfavorableoutcome.

In a showdown between undefeated heavyweights, Kirill Grishenko got the nod over ONE Championship debutant Dustin Joynson. Grishenko applied heavy pressure in the first two frames with Joynson showcasing his resolve by putting it on Grishenko in the third round.

Both warriors gave a great account of themselves. But ultimately, Grishenko had accrued bigger moments from the first two frames to get that UD win amongst the judges.

ONE Championship

Jeremy Miado secured a stoppage over Miao Li Tao in their strawweight sequel. Miado came out with a fervor right away. That dogged pursuit lead to the contest being waved off in the second stanza via technical knockout.

ONE: Next Gen opened things up with a scintillating ONE Super Series kickboxing contest. Light heavyweights Beybulat Isaev and Bogdan Stoica put on a varied affair with multiple momentum shifts throughout. Alas, Isaev ended up winning via unanimous decision when all was said and done.
