Rodtang Jitmuangnon continued his undefeated Muay Thai run in ONE with a unanimous decision over Danial Williams. The fight showed Rodtang’s skills as a striker, but it also highlighted the toughness of ONE newcomer Williams, who remained in the fight and threw his own strikes throughout.

Rodtang dropped Williams halfway through the second round with a left hook. Williams continued to get hit later in the round, getting wobbled with punches and cut open by elbows.

Despite getting lit up by Rodtang, Williams was still aggressive and attempting to advance on him. Williams was able to stay in the fight in the third round, landing his own shots on Rodtang.

Williams took the fight on short notice, replacing Jacob Smith.

While Rodtang is ONE’s currently 135-pound Muay Thai champ, the fight on Wednesday was not for his belt. He last defended his title in 2020, where he defeated Petchdam Petchyindee Academy on scorecards.

Bout 5: Adriano Moraes (18-3) vs. Demetrious Johnson (30-3-1) (ONE MMA Flyweight Championship) (135 lbs)

Adriano Moraes caught Demetrious Johnson with strikes in the second round to defend his ONE Flyweight Championship in the main event of Wednesday’s card. The sudden stoppage win for Moraes gave him his first title defence in his third run as a ONE champion.

After taking control on the ground in the second round, Moraes landed a knee to the head that hurt Johnson, who was sitting up at the moment. The strike put Johnson on his back again, allowing Moraes to land a few more punches before the referee stopped the fight.

“I don’t have a word to describe this moment. We did it,” said Moraes in his post-fight interview.

The fight was Moraes’ first since early 2019, where he defeated Geje Eustaquio via decision to regain his belt. Moraes has been in ONE’s title picture since 2014, where he defeated Eustaquio to kick off his first run as champ.

The fight was Johnson’s first title shot since making his ONE debut in 2019. Johnson had a strong run in his rookie year in ONE, picking up three wins.

Johnson is best known for his long UFC Flyweight Championship run which went from 2012 to 2018.

Bout 4: Eddie Alvarez (30-7) vs. Iuri Lapicus (14-1) (170 lbs) (MMA Bout)

The opening fight of the main card had a quick disqualification ending, as illegal strikes to the back of the head from Eddie Alvarez took Iuri Lapicus out of the fight.

The stoppage came due to strikes that Alvarez threw while on the ground. After being warned about landing a strike to the back of Lapicus’ head while it was turned away, Alvarez landed a trio of punches that included another on the back of the head.

Lapicus was down on the canvas for numerous minutes afterwards. Alvarez was given a red card eventually, calling an end to the bout.

Alvarez was visibly emotional afterwards, mentioning his concern for Lapicus’ safety.

“I hope Iuri [Lapicus] is totally fine because this game is totally dangerous and all I care about is [that] everyone in here is safe,” said Alvarez in his post-fight interview.

Alvarez mentioned that he saw Lapicus get stretchered out of the cage.

The fight was Alvarez’s return to ONE after over a year outside of the cage. He picked up his first ONE victory back in 2019, defeating Eduard Folayang.

Lapicus was returning after losing a title shot to Christian Lee last year.

Bout 3: Tyler McGuire (12-1) vs. Raimond Magomedaliev (7-1) (185 lbs) (MMA Bout)

Magomedaliev Controls McGuire For Third ONE Win

Raimond Magomedaliev earned his third consecutive ONE victory on Wednesday, defeating Tyler McGuire via unanimous decision on the prelims.

Magomedaliev’s win came after a strong performance that saw him control on the ground and in clinch positions.

Magomedaliev made use of clinch by scoring with knees to the body. McGuire was able to get a few takedowns early in the fight, although Magomedaliev was able to reverse some of the positions on the ground.

McGuire started the third round with a takedown, although Magomedaliev was able to take back control later in the round with a guillotine choke attempt.

Magomedaliev said afterwards that the time change entering Singapore and fighting in the morning made the match more challenging for him.

Magomedaliev now has three consecutive wins in ONE. He picked up two wins last year, stopping Edson Marques and Joey Pierotti.

McGuire made his return to MMA in his previous appearance, defeating Agilan Thani in December.

Bout 2: Chingiz Allazov vs. Enriko Kehl (155 lbs) (Kickboxing Bout)

Kehl Earns Split Decision Win Over Allazov

Enriko Kehl won a close kickboxing bout against Chingiz Allazov during the “Lead Card,” defeating him via split decision after three rounds.

The kickboxing bout kept a fast pace through all three rounds. The fighters would often engage in fast-paced exchanges where they would both connect. Kehl was able to pick up the scorecard win after keeping a high output of strikes throughout.

Kehl closed the fight out strong, backing Allazov up with quick combinations of strikes. Allazov’s volume dropped off greatly in the fight round as Kehl picked up his pace.

Kehl and Allazov have met before in the past. Their first bout was back in 2016, where Allazov earned a fifth-round stoppage win.

Bout 1: Oumar Kane (2-0) vs. Patrick Schmid (0-0) (265 lbs) (MMA Bout)

Kane Stops Kickboxer Schmid Within A Round With Strikes

Oumar Kane earned a fast win over short-notice opponent Patrick Schmid to open the prelims, stopping him in the first round with ground and pound. Kane, who also goes by nickname “Reug Reug,” dominated the fight and put a quick end to it after bringing it to the floor.

Kane was able to score a takedown a minute into the bout after chasing Schmid down with punches. Kane landed a high volume of strikes on the ground that forced the referee to eventually stop the fight.

The matchup of Kane and Schmid was made on Tuesday after both of their original opponents were pulled from the lineup due to “health and safety protocols.” Schmid was first set to fight in a kickboxing bout, but instead, he made his MMA debut on short notice.

Kane now has three wins as a pro. His previous victory saw him stop Alain Ngalani within a round.
