In the co-main event, Superlek Kiatmoo9 defended his #2-ranking in the flyweight kickboxing division by utilizing his knowledge and experience to take a decision against a very game Fahdi Khaled.

Fahdi Khaled stunned Superlek Kiatmoo9 in the first round, but the Thai star was able to make adjustments after feeling his opponent's best early on in the contest. Superlek's defense allowed him to take over the bout and negate Khaled's offense in the final six minutes. "The Kicking Machine" kicked his way to a decision.

Supergirl Jaroonsak Muaythai made his ONE debut in emphatic fashion with a blistering knockout of Milagros Lopez. The 16-year-old followed in her sister's, Wondergirl Fairtex, footsteps by scoring a quick first-round KO in their first ONE outings.

In mixed martial arts action, Witchayakorn Niamthanom, Abu Muslim Alikhanov, and Brogan Stewart-Ng showed fans how dangerous submissions are as they finished all of their opponents by tap out. Niamthanom and Stewart-Ng won by rear-naked choke, and Alikhanov finished with an ankle lock.

The UFC returned to American network television for the first time in more than two years Saturday on ABC while former featherweight champion Max Holloway returned to his winning ways following two straight losses, earning a unanimous decision over Calvin Kattar in Abu Dhabi. Holloway showed he still has plenty left as a fighter dominating Kattar from the opening bell of the main event with a mix of punches and low kicks.

It appeared as if the former champion might stop his opponent in the fourth round landing a series of vicious body blows followed by hard elbows to the head as a bloodied Kattar sagged against the fence. But Kattar somehow survived managing to keep himself upright through the fifth stanza as well, only to lose a lopsided decision. After dropping his title to Alexander Volkanovski and then losing a controversial rematch, Holloway may have put himself in position for one more crack at the championship following Saturday's impressive performance.

These three simple ways will make you more flexible instantly!

Fighters need to have an optimal amount of flexibility to kick, punch, takedown their opponent and even to escape submission holds. Your body has to be able to move through ranges of motion effectively, and that requires your muscles to stretch and contract functionally. In order to create flexibility, you have to wrap your mind around that it is more than just stretching a muscle.
