Roman Kryklia

On Friday, December 18, ONE Championship put on a show with ONE: Collision Course in Singapore.

Roman Kryklia and Nong-O Gaiyanghadao defended their ONE Super Series World Championships with four mixed martial arts contests rounding out the slate. The event had a little something for everyone and show world-class martial arts action from start-to-finish.

See how it all went down with the recap of ONE: Collision Course.


Main Event: Roman Kryklia vs. Andrei Stoica

Kryklia Winner by Unanimous Decision

Round 5 - 3:00

Kryklia was an unstoppable force on this night. From the opening bell, Kryklia looked outstanding. He worked the head, body, and legs in each round, finding success everywhere he threw strikes. Stoica's toughness allowed him to stay in the action for all five rounds, but at no point did the reigning king waver. It was a clear-cut performance for the champion who set the tone in his first title defense.

Nong-O Gaiyanghadao vs. Rodlek PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym

Nong-O Winner by KO

After two solid rounds of work by Rodlek, Nong-O took charge in the third round. As Rodlek attempted to get back into the action by putting the pressure on his Thai counterpart, Nong-O connected with a hammering straight right that put Rodlek down for good. Nong-O continued his undefeated run in ONE Super Series in emphatic fashion.

Marat Gafurov vs. Lowen Tynanes

Gafurov Winner by Split Decision

Former ONE Featherweight World Champion Marat Gafurov picked up a key lightweight victory by knocking off the undefeated Lowen Tynanes. Gafurov's three rounds of work were enough to get the edge as he hopes to become a contender for Christian Lee's belt in 2021.

Tatsumitsu Wada vs. Yodkaikaew Fairtex

Fairtex Winner by Split Decision

Yodkaikaew Fairtex also picked up a split decision win as he narrowly defeated Tatsumitsu Wada. Although Wada's grappling was strong, it was Fairtex who did the most damage with his strikes over the three rounds.

Yusup Saadulaev vs. Troy Worthen

Saadulaev Winner by Unanimous Decision

Another undefeated fell when #4-ranked bantamweight contender Yusup Saadulaev got the nod from the judge's against Troy Worthen. The American performed excellently, but Saadulaev was just a tiny bit better.

Chan Rothana vs. Xie Wei

Xie Winner by TKO

China's Xie Wei stopped the momentum of Chan Rothana with a third-round TKO to announce himself on the flyweight scene in the night's opening bout. Xie's striking was quick and powerful and should be a challenge for everyone in the division.

Can we admit we find it off-putting when someone struggles with being famous?

The mere mortals of us will probably as a rule be incredulous when we see people who get to do things people dream of and avoid real jobs. Especially when their gig gives them checks with lots of zeros on them. But some reflection might lead us to see fighting is probably not in the category of things that should illicit that kind of thinking. Does anyone in their right mind dream of stripping down to their skivvies and stepping into a cage to potentially be beat to pulp for a few thousand bucks? If you do, you may want to find an MMA gym near you.
