The event saw the crowning of two new world champions, several impressive performances, and some jaw-dropping knockouts that ultimately served to set a high bar for the other ONE cards coming up this year. Let’s rewind and look at all the epic finishes from another action-packed night inside the Circle. UFC Commentator Joe Rogan once said that he loves the “amazing shows” from ONE Championship.

There’s a new ONE featherweight kickboxing world champion, and his name is Chingiz “Chinga” AllazovThe top-ranked contender put pound-for-pound great and defending king Superbon Singha Mawynn to sleep in the evening’s main event to claim the coveted strap, as well as a $50,000 performance bonus.

Allazov kept the Thai guessing with his movement in the opening round. He bounced in and out of the pocket, throwing hooks, kicks, and uppercuts. Superbon, on the other end of the action, stayed busy, but every time he threw a strike, his foe replied with three.

As he had done in the first frame, Allazov started the second round with huge rights. His output and pace continued to stun Superbon, and a right soon rattled him, signaling what was to follow. The world champion went down but answered the referee’s eight-count, only for him to be given another count moments later courtesy of Allazov’s huge boxing combinations.

Superbon returned to his feet again. But just as referee Olivier Coste waved his hands for action to continue, “Chinga” stormed forward with punches, kicks, and another cracking right hand to seal the win at 1:03 of the second frame.

Aung La N Sang’s venomous fists put Gilberto Galvao to Sleep

Aung La “The Burmese Python” N Sang did what he does best inside the Impact Arena on Friday night – score another highlight-reel finish to add to his impressive resume. The former two-division titleholder took it to submission grappling ace Gilberto “Giba” Galvao as soon as the opening bell rang in their catchweight battle. His Brazilian foe did the same, coming in wild overhands, but Aung La N Sang was more measured in his approach.

He recognized the threat, backpedaled, then struck, dropping Galvao with a quick uppercut. With his back on the canvas, “Giba” invited Aung La N Sang to fight from guard. The latter didn’t want to participate in that exchange, however, prompting referee Herb Dean to give the Brazilian space to get back on his feet. 

Galvao then decided to shoot for a takedown, which the Kill Cliff FC representative defended well, leaving both men in the clinch. Aung La N Sang hurt his rival with a couple of elbows there, one of which sent his opponent back to the mat.

Without wasting any time, “The Burmese Python” swarmed on Galvao and unleashed a barrage of punches and hammerfists to gain another memorable win inside the Circle.

Garry Tonon’s slick kimura taps out Johnny Nunez

After falling short in his ONE featherweight world title challenge last year, Garry “The Lion Killer” Tonon was fired up to return to winning ways and send a notice to the entire division when he took to the Circle on Friday. That was exactly what he did in the Thai capital as he secured a first-round submission win over Johnny “Johnny Boy” Nunez.

Nunez brought the fight to the #2-ranked featherweight contender, just as Tonon had anticipated in the lead-up to the match. The American Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu legend had even theorized that Nunez’s style could be his own downfall.

That ultimately proved to be true. Working from inside Nunez’s clinch, Tonon secured his compatriot’s arm and locked in a kimura. From there, he flipped the wrestler onto the canvas and tightened the lock, which eventually drew a tap from Nunez at just 1:53 of the opening stanza.
