Main Event: Marat Grigorian vs. Ivan Kondratev

Grigorian Winner by KO

Round 2 - 1:52

Ivan Kondratev began the contest strong with punishing body blows, and then did the unthinkable when he dropped Marat Grigorian at the end of the first round. However, the Armenian striker rebounded in the second round and closed the show with a debilitating hook to the body in the second round. The victory sets up a potential meeting with Giorgio Petrosyan in 2021 for the vacant ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Championship.

Koyomi Matsushima vs. Garry Tonon

Tonon Winner by Unanimous Decision

Garry Tonon wasn't able to get the finish, but he picked up the ever-important victory over #3-ranked featherweight contender Koyomi Matsushima. The American controlled the action on the mat but was never able to get the submission. Matsushima showed excellent ground defense in the loss. Tonon seems to be on the doorstep to a title shot.

Anderson Silva vs. Murat Aygun

Aygun Winner by Unanimous Decision

Andy Souwer vs. Zhang Chunyu

Souwer Winner by Unanimous Decision

Andy Souwer put on a beautiful throwback performance against Zhang Chunyu. Although the Chinese athlete did not fall, Souwer worked him over through their three rounds of action.

Bokang Masunyane vs. Rene Catalan

Masunyane Winner by KO

Bokang Masunyane blew through #3-ranked strawweight contender Rene Catalan in just 37 seconds. After the KO, "Little Giant" called for a title shot against reigning king Joshua Pacio.
