ONE Super Series kickboxing action headlined the evening with Russia's Aslanbek Zikreev edging out Wang "Golden Boy" Junguang in a catch weight bout. But it was a night full of competitive and fun action.
Three of the four undercard bouts ended with finishes and the back-and-forth Muay Thai battle between Rocky Ogden and Joseph Lasiri was worth the price of admission alone.

Rocky Ogden vs. Joseph Lasiri
Lasiri Winner by Split Decision

Bruno Pucci vs. Kwon Won Il
Kwon Winner by TKO
It was all-action when Bruno Pucci and Kwon Won Il's match began, but after Kwon defended a takedown his striking took over and closed the show inside the first round. A debilitating body blow left Pucci as a sitting duck to a couple right hands before a heavy uppercut finally sent him to the canvas. Kwon's dominant showing should set him up for bigger things in the new year.
