Tawanchai PK.Saenchai vs. Niclas Larsen

Round 2 - 1:42

Niclas Larsen began the match with a lot of aggression, but the Thai star used it against him for an early knockdown off of a brilliant right hook-left cross combination. Tawanchai PK.Saenchai was on point early and continued to rack up the points through the first round.

In the second round, Tawanchai would put a stop to the show.

Another right hook-left cross combo came in the second and landed cleanly to send Larsen to the mat. He was unable to recover, and Tawanchai picked up an extra $50,000 in the process after being awarded a performance bonus.

Fabricio Andrade continues to shine on the global stage, as the Brazilian put away Kwon Won Il in the first round of their bantamweight contender’s matchup. Andrade has been sensational, and after knocking off the #2-ranked contender in the division, his path toward the title seems inevitable.

Ranked flyweight contenders Kairat Akhmetov and Reece McLaren defended their positions in the official ONE athlete rankings with their victories at ONE 158. During the event, it was announced that Demetrious Johnson would square off against Adriano Moraes once again on August 26 in U.S. primetime. The wins for the contenders keep them in the mix as the division continues to get packed with extraordinary talent.

Guto Inocente put a halt to the rise of Rade Opacic with a shocking first-round knockout upset with a crushing body blow. The result will allow him to usurp Opacic’s momentum and take the cat bird’s seat in the heavyweight division.

Alex Silva got his rematch with Adrian Mattheis and avenged his loss with a brilliant first-round submission. The Brazilian grappler chained together countless submissions before finding the inside heel hook for the victory that sends him right back into the thick of things at strawweight.

Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida and Odie Delaney grabbed wins to further their candidacy in the heavyweight division. Almeida looked incredible with a first-round TKO stoppage that displayed his massive power on the ground. Delaney added another submission to his tally with a second-round finish as he continued to put the pieces of the puzzle together before ascending into contention.
