Regian Eersel

ONE Championship closed out their "Fists Of Fury" event series with ONE: Fists Of Fury III, a previously recorded event, from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The six-bout event was capped off by two sensational ONE Super Series contests including a ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Championship bout between Regian Eersel and Mustapha Haida.

Miss any of the action? Here is a recap of how the six exciting martial arts bouts went down in "The Lion City" on Friday, March 19.


Main Event: Regian Eersel vs. Mustapha Haida

Eersel Winner by Unanimous Decision

Round 5 - 3:00

"The Immortal" Regian Eersel would not fall victim to his challenge from Mustapha "Dynamite" Haida in Singapore. The reigning king of the lightweight division moved past his latest challenger with a five-round showcase of his skills.

The Surinamese striker proved he was one of the fastest athletes in ONE with another high output performance. At every turn, Eersel peppered Haida and avoided the heat coming from "Dynamite". Without a scratch on him, "The Immortal" knew he was the victor and got his hand raised after all three judges sided with him after 15 minutes of championship action.

Alma Juniku vs. Janet Todd

Todd Winner by Unanimous Decision

Janet "JT" Todd returned to Muay Thai to potentially lay claim to a World Title shot in her bid to become a two-sport World Champ after a unanimous decision win over Alma Juniku. The match was close through the first three minutes, but Todd's precision and power took over in the final two rounds including dropping Juniku in the second.

Alex Silva vs. Hiroba Minowa

Minowa Winner by Split Decision

There are not many who can survive on the mat against Alex Silva, but Hiroba Minowa not only survived — he won. The Japanese standout athlete showed no fear playing on the ground and found enough offense to edge out the former ONE Strawweight World Champion to pick-up a huge win in the division.

Maira Mazar vs. Jenelyn Olsim

Olsim Winner by Submission

#5-ranked strawweight contender Maira Mazar was upset by Jenelyn Olsim in the most shocking of ways at ONE: Fists Of Fury III. The Filipina submitted the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace in the third round. Olsim made her mark and became an instant threat to Xiong Jing Nan's reign with the victory.

Roshan Mainam vs. Aziz Calim

Mianam Winner by Submission

Roshan Mainam kept his streak going with a third-consecutive submission win over Aziz Calim. The battle hit the canvas early and it was all Mainam from that point forward. He effortlessly slipped his arm under the chin and got the tap.

Yodkaikaew Fairtex vs. Hu Yong

Hu Winner by Unanimous Decision

In an exciting opening battle, Hu Yong controlled the action over 15 minutes and picked up a key victory over a rising star in Yodkaikaew Fairtex. The Chinese athlete made a big statement with his dominant performance in the flyweight division.

Bruce Lee Enter the Dragon

Bruce Lee really did have the Midas touch when it came to training. Most people think Bruce was advanced and complicated, but he was the master of simplicity. He was not worried about doing the jump-up flip spin-around back kick. Not sure if there is one. But by the time you land, Bruce would just throw a simple kick or punch to knock you down as you landed to the ground. However, that is the point. Simplicity is often overlooked because of the coolness and the latest and greatest workout when simplicity produces the most significant effect. Super complicated does not mean superior. This is actually reverse in fact. We see super complex exercises that don’t need to be. Truthfully, if an exercise or method is not straightforward in its approach, then it probably is not good.
