Sangmanee was much more aggressive to start the second frame. Hlali tried to disrupt his rhythm with leg kicks, but the Thai switched his diverse attack between elbows, kicks, and knees. A leg kick of his own seemed to rattle the Dutch-Moroccan.

    Following a brief clinch where the two exchanged knees, the action heated up. Each man engaged, traded knees in the clinch, and exchanged punches and kicks. Hlali, for the most part, seemed content playing the role of the counter striker.
    11/8/2019 2:12:58 PM
    The two got started right away by exchanging kicks, but 30 seconds in, Hlali caught one of Sanmganee’s kicks and swept him out. 

    Halfway into the round, both men strategically threw their leg kicks, but Hlali caught another and kicked his rival's supporting leg out yet again.

    Sangmanee had his opponent on the back foot, but his leg got caught once more and swept for the third time. Hlali ran forward with a few punches, and then he backed up once more.
    The Thai ran at him with fierce leg kicks, but “The Magician” connected with a straight right down the pipe. Sangmanee, however, was not bothered.

    Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio defeats Toni “Dynamite” Tauru via knockout at 2:11 of round three (mixed martial arts — flyweight)

    11/8/2019 1:50:50 PM

    Eustaquio went back to the leg on the outset of the third frame. The kicks and combinations prevented Tauru from firing first. 


    Two minutes into the bout, the Filipino’s spinning back kick landed flush to his rival’s liver, and Tauru doubled over while dropping to his knees. Eustaquio saw no reason to do anything more and raised his arms in victory as the referee attended to Tauru.

    11/8/2019 1:50:26 PM



    This round was contested mostly on the feet. Eustaquio displayed his striking superiority, constantly stinging his rival with punches — especially hooks and jabs. At times, however, Tauru’s reach kept the Filipino hero on the edge.


    Past the midway point of the bout, Eustaquio caught a leg, swept his opponent, and after a brief takedown attempt from Tauru, the match continued on the feet. The Finn backed his rival up, but was hesitant with his striking attack.


    “Gravity” landed a heavy outside leg kick just before the bell sounded, and he carries momentum into the third and final round.

    11/8/2019 1:46:58 PM



    The two tied up quickly and Tauru spun around to the back of Eustaquio. They went to the mat and Tauru sought a rear-naked choke. Eustaquio kept the Finn from getting the arm under the chin, and then he spun into his opponent’s guard as the audience erupted in cheers. The action moved back to the feet before the end of the round.

    11/8/2019 1:27:46 PM

    In their first bout back in December 2016, Tauru defeated Eustaquio via submission in round one … in Manila.

    How does he feel the rematch will go? 

    “The first time, I was the one to silence the crowd, and I will do that again.”

    Stamp Fairtex defeats Bi “Killer Bee” Nguyen via unanimous decision (mixed martial arts — women’s atomweight)

    11/8/2019 1:24:05 PM
    Nguyen showed incredible stamina as she continued to advance with punches and strikes. However, she had yet to crack Stamp with a hard blow. She finally found her mark with a nice overhand right, but the Thai stood tall.
    Stamp's impeccable timing on defense kept her in the game while she unleashed nice counter jabs and strikes towards the advancing Nguyen. "Killer Bee" continued to methodically inch forward with punches, but was met with a hard left jab from her opponent. 
    Both women circled each other in the center of the ring, trading punches and kicks right before the bell rang. This will go the judges' scorecards.
    11/8/2019 1:21:00 PM
    Stamp showed more slick striking and maintained good range to keep Nguyen at bay. Nguyen's double-leg takedown attempt was stuffed by her Thai adversary.
    "Killer Bee" dialed up the pressure by unloading several jabs, and then the two engaged in an intense back-and-forth in the center of the ring. Nguyen threw more, but the Fairtex representative wisely kept her distance before the round came to a close.
    We are heading to the third round.
    11/8/2019 1:15:01 PM
    Nguyen kept her distance initially, but then she darted forward and a fast exchange of punches ensued. She tried again, but Stamp caught her and dumped her to the canvas. The two-sport ONE World Champion controlled the match In the body clinch, doing great work with her knees. 
    Stamp cracked a huge knee that caught Nguyen, but "Killer Bee" hung on with the body lock. Still vertical, the Thai dropped Nguyen, and then she gained top control and unleashed ground and pound. She continued to grind with punches before both women worked to their feet.
    Nguyen searched for the takedown, continued to push the pace and played the aggressor, but Stamp maintained her cool. "Killer Bee" caught a high leg, but the Thai remarkably maintained her balance, and the pair traded heavy hands after exiting from the body clinch.
    Both women swung wildly as the bell sounded to mark the end to a thrilling first round.

    11/8/2019 1:00:26 PM

    Nguyen, however, feels more empowered than ever before. Following her victory in her homeland, she feels like her late father would be immensely proud of her, and we agree — he would be very proud.

    11/8/2019 12:58:52 PM

    Li Kai Wen defeats Paul Lumihi via knockout at 2:39 of round one (mixed martial arts — bantamweight)

    11/8/2019 12:53:37 PM
    Li wasted no time. He ran right at Lumihi with flying strikes. The Indonesian did well to evade, but the Chinese athlete stayed on top of him, grabbed his leg, and tried locking in a guillotine choke. Lumihi rolled away and despite his rival’s best efforts, he escaped and returned to his feet.

    Lumihi immediately launched some of his own strikes, including overhands and taekwondo kicks, but “The Underdog” was undeterred. Though Li was seemingly breathing quite heavily, he continued to move forward with heavy punches. He eventually grabbed Lumihi's head and threw lunging knees, most of which were blocked by the Indonesian's arms.
    Still, the strikes took a toll. Li move forward, threw a powerful left cross, switched stances, and then crumpled his rival with an uppercut for the KO.
    11/8/2019 12:52:42 PM
    11/8/2019 12:42:41 PM

    Lumihi has had a tough go since joining ONE Championship earlier this year, but he has game-planned specifically for Li. Will it pay off?

    11/8/2019 12:40:58 PM
    Li is making his bantamweight debut, but here are a few reasons to be excited about his return: his last three bouts were a 43-second submission victory, a 10-second knockout victory, and a victory in one of the top five bouts of 2018.
    11/8/2019 12:39:24 PM

    Yoshitaka Naito defeats Pongsiri Mitsatit via unanimous decision (mixed martial arts - strawweight)

    11/8/2019 12:28:58 PM
    Mitsatit is managing the distance well in the opening minute of the round to land his strikes and not allow Naito to shoot in with another takedown attempt. The former ONE Strawweight World Champion goes for a takedown, but Mitsatit scores with a hard knee. Naito attacks a leg while on the canvas and uses it to reverse the position to end up on top.
    The Japanese athlete gets to side control and cradles the Thai hero. Naito advances to mount with more than a minute left in the contest. Naito finishes the third and final round in mount with incredible hip pressure to prevent Mitsatit from bucking him off the position.
    11/8/2019 12:26:06 PM
    Naito once again gets an early takedown. Mitsatit is doing well to avoid any big shots on the ground, but Naito is controlling the position and pace of the bout. Naito passes smoothly into mount. Naito threatens with a triangle from top, but Mitsatit is wise to the attempt. Mitsatit scrambles and Naito nearly nabs his arm in the process but Mitsatit gets free.
    Mitsatit is up to his feet and is trying to get his offense going, but Naito takes him right back to the mat. Naito easily mounts and finishes the round out on top.
    11/8/2019 12:19:33 PM
    Naito closes the distance and grabs a leg early in the round, but Mitsatit defends the initial shot. The Japanese athlete stays attached to Mitsatit as he moves up to a body lock before finally securing the takedown.
    The Thai gets back to his feet after threatening with upkicks, but Naito initiates another clinch battle. Good inside knees from Mitsatit hit the mark. An inside leg trip secures the second takedown for Naito.
    This round closes with a brief skirmish on the canvas.
    11/8/2019 12:14:40 PM
    11/8/2019 12:04:20 PM
    This much is clear: both men want the ONE Strawweight World Championship and both men want to rematch Joshua Pacio. This is a high stakes divisional match-up, as only one man can move forward.
    11/8/2019 12:03:56 PM

    Both men revealed their thoughts ahead of the bout.

    Naito believes he can submit his Thai opponent, where Mitsatit believes his key to victory is a knockout. Peep their pre-bout banter here.

    11/8/2019 12:01:59 PM

    We caught up with a very happy Robin Catalan backstage, who shared his strategy with us. “The plan was to get that knockout win, but I didn't expect it to come so soon,” he confessed. “That was my target, to win via head kick. I also know that he is an Olympic wrestler — that is why we really prepared for his strengths.”
