Thanh Le

ONE Championship has showcased some of the finest talents from all around the globe, and one of the fastest-rising nations on the global stage has been Vietnam.

The talent coming out of Vietnam has produced some of the most exhilarating finishes in recent memory.

Two of the top athletes of Vietnamese heritage have been featherweight kings Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen and Thanh Le.


Nguyen, an Australian-Vietnamese star, has conquered two divisions during his stint in the organization. The heavy-handed athlete first picked up the ONE Featherweight World Championship before claiming the ONE Lightweight World Title to become the first-ever ONE double champion.

At ONE: Inside The Matrix, Thanh Le ascended to the top of the featherweight division against Nguyen.

The Vietnamese-American completed his objective with a dazzling knockout over "The Situ-Asian" in what was promised to be an all-action title tilt. It delivered on that promise and highlighted the tremendous Vietnamese talent.

In ONE Super Series, "No. 1" Nguyen Tran Duy Nhat delivers some of the most spectacular performances. The Vietnamese warrior is displaying his skills in the striking arts as one of the top Muay Thai practitioners in the world today.

As the martial arts world continues to grow, fans should expect more amazing talent to come from Vietnam. The talent-rich region has already produced World Champions, and there is undoubtedly more to ascend to greatness in the years to come.

Enjoy this hard-hitting compilation provided by Asia's largest sports media property of some of the best finishes from ONE's Vietnamese athletes!

The 2021 Diamond Nationals took place on October 8th and 9th, the first time the prestigious event has been hosted since 2019. World class competitors gathered in Minneapolis, Minnesota to test their skills in forms, weapons, point sparring, and more.

In the early 2010's, Ken Warner (otherwise known as ZenInc on YouTube) always shared his "Top Five" on Facebook after major sport karate events. Reflecting on these posts has inspired me to write a top five article of my own for the Diamond Nationals, and I plan to continue writing these articles after each tournament I attend. Special thanks to Ken Warner for his contributions to documenting sport karate history. Without further ado, here is Jackson's Five for the Diamond Nationals.

UFC Fight Night results, highlights: Marvin Vettori survives wild brawl with Paulo Costa to take decision win

In a match-up of elite middleweights contested at light heavyweight, Marvin Vettori outfought Paulo Costa over five rounds to take a unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 196 Saturday in Las Vegas. Originally scheduled for 186 pounds, Costa announced he weighed 211 on Wednesday and wouldn't even be trying to make 186 so the bout was reset for 195 pounds. But when Costa said that was still no good, the UFC and the Nevada Athletic Commission gave him his way as Vettori agreed to fight at 205.
