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.

11 Ultimate Facts About Jean-Claude Van Damme's Bloodsport

Recently a friend, David Abdullah Muhammad aka Brotha Newz, https://youtu.be/o0FNaWDqB1U started posting vintage martial arts movie posters for an upcoming album release and reminiscing about movies that I watched as a young adult. Most of these are not what you would typically think of like Enter the Dragon. Most of them were from the 80's which I consider to be the golden age of the martial arts movie genre. You had movies like A Force of One with Chuck Norris and Bill Wallace, Blood Sport with Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Above the Law with Steven Seagal. These movies had some of the biggest martial arts stars of the time and really pushed an explosion of martial arts related movies into the next decade.
