28 January 2022 – Singapore: ONE Championship™ (ONE) returned with ONE: ONLY THE BRAVE, which aired live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The stacked fight card included a pair of ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix semifinal bouts, a highly anticipated lightweight encounter, and a showdown between top strawweight mixed martial arts contenders.
Third-ranked featherweight kickboxing contender Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong dominated Davit Kiria from start to finish and punched his ticket to the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Championship Final. Sitthichai established himself early in this semifinal clash, picking apart Kiria with his signature left kick from range.
In the second round, a left high kick landed for Sitthichai, sending the Georgian striker down for the count.
The third round saw Sitthichai build an even wider lead, as he cruised to a unanimous decision win. The decorated Thai athlete will now face Chingiz Allazov in the final round of the prestigious tournament.
Fourth-ranked featherweight kickboxing contender Chingiz Allazov advanced to the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Championship Final with a knockout victory over Smokin’ Jo Nattawut. Allazov put Nattawut on the seat of his pants with a combination early in the fight, but the Thai warrior made it back to his feet and beat the mandatory eight-count. Shortly after, a well-placed left hook to the temple dropped Nattawut again, ending the fight.
Due to his strong performance, Allazov earned a US$50,000 bonus from ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
