    ONE: EDGE OF GREATNESS is just getting started. Now, Putri “Ami” Padmi welcomes Colbey Northcutt to ONE Championship in a flyweight contest!

    11/22/2019 1:02:40 PM

    We caught up with a very happy Petchmorakot backstage. He was beyond thrilled with his victory. “I didn’t fight Muay Thai for a year, since last fight in ONE with Liam Harrison. After that, I fought in the kickboxing rule set, which was not my original style. But, I tried my best,” he says. “I am an elbow and knee type of fighter, so I finished my opponent with my best weapon. This fight, I came back to being myself. I feel very confident.”

    Alex Silva defeats Peng Xue Wen via submission (armbar) at 4:45 of round two (mixed martial arts — strawweight)

    11/22/2019 12:59:06 PM

    ROUND TWO

     

    Silva opened the contest with his boxing, but he held his hands low and quite open. As Peng moved forward with another cross, the Brazilian ducked and hit a takedown. 

     

    The man known as “Little Rock” strategically advanced to side control and then the north-south position for a possible choke, but Peng got loose and returned to his feet.

     

    Although Silva continued with his volume-punches, Peng cracked him with a cross and a hook. However, he soon hit a takedown, and then went for an armbar, but the Chinese athlete quickly shook him off.

     

    With the action back upright, Silva used his punches to set up another takedown. From there, he jumped into mount. He went for a last-minute armbar in mid-roll and … he got the tap!!!

    11/22/2019 12:57:40 PM

    ROUND ONE

     

    Operating out of the southpaw stance, Alex Silva obliged to trade with Peng. He connected with punches and even landed a strong side head kick, which was partially blocked. The Chinese athlete did not necessarily retaliate with volume, but he picked his shots wisely.

     

    Silva went for the takedown halfway into the opening stanza, but the grappling-savvy Peng did well to defend and move away. That left the two to stand and trade. The Brazilian’s shots got loopier, and a cross from his rival would wobble him.

     

    Peng rushed forward to finish him, but Silva went for a failed leg lock. However, that allowed him to reverse positions. Nonetheless, Peng was able to scramble back to his feet, prompting a stand-up battle once again.

     

    Despite engaging, the Brazilian seemed a bit tentative. He landed a spinning back kick, but it did not affect his Chinese opponent. Soon thereafter, the bell rang.

    After celebrating his win with his fans, Shuya Kamikubo paid respect to Bruno Pucci. “Thanks to Bruno, I could find the problems and issues [in my skill set],” he said. “It was really great to fight him. I respect him as a person because he is so mature.”

    Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy defeats Charlie Peters via knockout at 1:48 of round two (ONE Super Series Muay Thai — featherweight)
    11/22/2019 12:20:48 PM
    ROUND TWO
     
    Peters used good footwork to escape from an onslaught of leg kicks early in the second round. 
     
    They get tangled in the ropes, and then the action shifted back to the center of the ring. The two-division Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai World Champion changed gears and went on the offensive. He dropped Peters with a clean hit as they clinched in the corner, but the Englishman managed to get back to his feet.
     
    Petchmorakot drove forward, drove a few painful knees into his rival, and crumpled Peters to the canvas. After Peters was unable to continue, the referee called a stop to the action.
    11/22/2019 12:19:04 PM
    ROUND ONE
     
    After the initial feeling out period, both men exchanged leg kicks. Petchmorakot put power behind his kicks, but “Charlie Boy” smartly evaded and nearly swept the Thai hero.
     
    Petchmorakot threw out a high kick to the head of his English opponent, but Peters returned with inside kicks to the thigh.
     
    He lined up a roundhouse, but Peters started to let his hands fly, and as the Thai hero moved forward, the Double K representative swept him to the canvas.
     
    Peters stormed in with an offensive tirade, and let loose with more combinations. Petchmorakot launched a flying knee as Peters egged him on. The action is intense and we can expect more in round two.
    11/22/2019 12:14:55 PM
    11/22/2019 12:06:41 PM

    This is Peters’ second bout in ONE, and it could not be any tougher. He is facing a guy who shocked the world in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix.

    Nguyen Tran Duy Nhat defeats Yuta Watanabe via knockout at 0:30 of round two (ONE Super Series Muay Thai — flyweight)

    11/22/2019 11:57:51 AM
    ROUND TWO
     
    Nguyen went right back to what was successful in the first round - the head kick. It landed flush again, and that marked a KO win for "No. 1."
    11/22/2019 11:57:30 AM
    ROUND ONE
     
    Nguyen launched a hard high kick to get the attention of Watanabe in the opening minute. Nguyen checked a few low kick attempts from the Japanese striker and returned fire with a sharp kick to the body.
     
    As Watanabe backed away, Nguyen scored with a head kick to put him on the canvas. Watanabe answered the count, but he got dropped again right away.
     
    Nguyen tried to close the show in the waning seconds of the round, but Watanabe covered up and made it to the second frame.

    We saw Liam Nolan backstage following his win, and he was in good spirits. “My left kick worked a lot. I felt in control when I was stepping forward, and I felt stronger, faster, and more technical than him,” Nolan said. “I want to just keep progressing and hopefully fight better people moving forward.”

    Shuya Kamikubo defeats Bruno Pucci via unanimous decision (mixed martial arts — bantamweight)

    11/22/2019 11:44:18 AM
    ROUND THREE
     

    Kamikubo runs forward with an overhand right, which connects, followed by a few more short punches. Then, he went back for the takedown towards the corner. Pucci defended well for nearly two minutes, but the Japanese warrior would not be denied — he hit it and threw punches from the guard. 

     

    The Brazilian went into his bag of jiu-jitsu tricks, but Kamikubo shut down his counter-attacks, returned to guard or half-guard, and threw punches when the opportunity presented itself. As "Puccibull" tried to escape at the very end, Kamikubo threw knees to the head and went back towards his grappling-heavy strategy.

    11/22/2019 11:43:40 AM

    ROUND TWO

     

    Kamikubo lowered his head and threw punches to get in close for a takedown. He quickly grabbed his waist, put him on his back, and, from the half guard position, methodically flung knees and elbows at Pucci’s head.

     

    The Brazilian returned to his feet, but Kamikubo did not give him a chance to breathe. He worked for a single-leg, hit a takedown, struck from the half-guard position. "Puccibull" did well to manuever to his opponent's back and go for a rear-naked choke, but he was slammed to the mat and ate some ground and pound before covering up.

     

    Again, Pucci escaped, but for Kamikubo, it was rinse and repeat. Will it differ in the third round? We will find out!

    11/22/2019 11:37:59 AM
    ROUND ONE
     
    It was a round packed with grappling.
     

    Pucci came out with fire and immediately looked for a modified guillotine choke of sorts, but the Japanese bantamweight reached for a leg and tried taking him down towards the ropes. Mr. “Puccibull” pulled guard and worked towards a triangle, but Kaimukbo slid out.

     

    Though Pucci returned to his feet quickly, “Stealth” stayed glued to him and searched for a takedown near the corner. The Brazilian reversed course and hit a takedown of his own, and he even got his rival’s back. But Kamikubo escaped and brought him down against the corner.

     

    The pair kept reversing each other's attempts, but Kamikubo eventually put him in a D'Arce-type grip and flung some knees to the head. His Brazilian rival escaped, but those would be the most significant strikes of the opening stanza.

    We're off to round two.

    Liam Nolan defeats Brown Pinas via unanimous decision (ONE Super Series Muay Thai — featherweight)
    11/22/2019 11:20:46 AM
    ROUND THREE
     
    Nolan threatened constantly with his trademark high kicks, but the power in his hands also kept Pinas on guard. 
     
    Pinas started to come alive a little, and landed several clean strikes. He even scored a nice spinning back elbow counter. 
     
    The Dutchman found a way to close the distance and threw a series of combinations. Nolan returned fire with powerful kicks as both men tangled at the ropes just as the bell sounded.
     
    It is up to the judges now.
    11/22/2019 11:20:18 AM
    ROUND TWO
     
    Nolan began to take command of the round from the start. Pinas tried to find a way past Nolan’s tight guard, but could not connect with his stiff jabs.
     
    The Englishman continued to deliver stabbing leg kicks to Pinas’ midsection whenever the Dutchman crept forward to strike.
     
    Nolan continued to maintain his work rate with front kicks and jumping round kicks, and both men found themselves at the corner of the ring.
     
    The bell has rung, and we are headed to round three!
    11/22/2019 11:15:31 AM
    ROUND ONE
     
    Both men tested each other with kicks in the opening minute. A front push kick from the Englishman sent Pinas backwards, but the Dutchman kept on advancing.
     
    They traded kicks as Nolan pushed Brown against the ropes. The English striker’s confidence grew, and he started to move forward and connected with a nice inside kick, which sent Pinas to the canvas momentarily.
     
    More furious kicks followed from the former Roar Combat League Champion. His aggression kept Pinas tight on defense, as the bell rung to close the first round.
    11/22/2019 11:11:41 AM
    11/22/2019 11:04:26 AM

    The Dutchman, Pinas, already made a mark in ONE Championship with a highlight-reel knockout against Yohann Fairtex Drai last November, but Britain’s Nolan is no easy out. The former Roar Combat League World Champion hopes to pick up win #17 in this European clash.
