In the main event of the evening, Marat “Cobra” Gafurov of Russia overcame a spirited effort from now former champion Narantungalag Jadambaa of Mongolia to win by technical submission in an exhausting title bout. Jadambaa proved to the world that his striking is an absolute force to be reckoned with, battering Gafurov with well-timed kicks and pinpoint punching. Gafurov however, dominated from top position with various submission attempts and ground-and-pound. In the end, Gafurov secured a breathtaking rear naked choke to put Jadambaa to sleep, coercing referee Olivier Coste to call a halt to the contest.

 

In the co-main event, Greco-Roman wrestling specialist Kairat Akhmetov showcased his superior takedown ability to remain undefeated by trumping now former champion Adriano Moraes to capture the ONE Flyweight World Championship. Although Moraes led slightly with his revamped striking technique, Akhmetov scored on multiple takedowns and nullified the Brazilian’s submission attempts with top control. Judges scored the bout in favor of Akhmetov by split decision after five rounds.

 

Yang Sen took the fight straight to opponent Zhang Jia Cai to win by impressive Kimura submission in the Beijing Featherweight Tournament II final bout. Yang beat Zhang to the punch on numerous occasions and commandeered the action on the mat to set up the spectacular finish. With the victory, Yang maintained his undefeated record and was crowned tournament champion.

 

In an evenly matched flyweight contest, Li Wei Bin and Wang Ya Yong both put on an amazing display of grit and heart for three gruelling rounds. The two fighters maintained a fast pace throughout, with Li utilizing well-calculated strikes to keep Wang at bay. A spinning backfast landed for Wang in the second round but Li accomplished more down the stretch. Two judges had Li winning the fight as he was awarded with a split decision victory.

 

Nikolay Aleksakhin of Seltso, Russia utilized world-class wrestling to punish Burenzorig Batmunkh of Mongolia en-route to an impressive submission finish. Aleksakhin dominated his opponent on the ground and also established command in the striking department, highlighted by a spinning backfist in the final round. After three rounds of action, Aleksakhin was able to secure the rear naked choke, compelling Batmunkh to tap out.

 

Jeff “The Machine” Huang evened the score with Trestle Tan by scoring a quick technical knockout victory over the Filipino mixed martial artist. Tan blasted Huang with a combination to open the bout but Huang was able to secure a clinch up against the cage where he tagged Tan repeatedly with uppercuts, forcing the stoppage just moments into the first round.

 

Ma Jia Wen figured in a phenomenal performance against Wang Ya Wei as he trounced his opponent from start to finish with devastating power shots from all angles. Ma showcased dynamic striking technique and good range awareness to keep Wang at a distance, unable to take the fight to the ground. After two rounds of absolute dominance, the Tianjin native simply would not be denied of victory as he defeated Wang by unanimous decision.

 

Zhang Jia Cai got the better of the exchanges and showed solid submission defense against Qiao Long Fei who had no answer for Zhang’s tenacity. Zhang pummeled Qiao repeatedly with powerful strikes and dictated the action on the feet. On the mat, Zhang was able to lock in a modified rear naked choke from the side, forcing Qiao to tap out in the first round.

 

Mixed martial artist Ala Teng Bu Ri Ge De and Sanda specialist Yang Sen kicked off ONE WUJIE: DYNASTY OF CHAMPIONS (BEIJING II) with a classic battle between grappler and striker. Ala Teng Bu Ri Ge De tried to control the action from top position but Yang’s striking superiority shone through as he repeatedly blasted his opponent with heavy strikes. In the end, two judges saw the fight for Yang who took the bout by split decision.
