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.

Donnie Yen
Flash Point
The film Ip Man (2008) secured the place of actor/Black Belt Hall of Famer Donnie Yen in the pantheon of martial arts-action heroes. Yen’s incredible portrayal of the legendary wing chun kung fu master delivered action scenes with exciting martial arts and jaw-dropping stunts. Although the film generated three sequels, each arguably as good as the original, they are not the only great martial arts-action movies by Yen. Selected below are three great Donnie Yen films that aren’t Ip Man.
