Singapore’s One Championship may have recently outlawed the soccer kicks for which it was famous, but it still produces some truly incredible knockouts. One such knockout occurred this morning, during the organization’s latest show “Age of Domination,” which occured at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, the Philippines.
This knockout was dealt by Brazilian middleweight Leandro Ataides, who took on Egypt’s Mohamed Ali. It occurred in the second round, when Ataides planted a rocket-fuelled flying knee on the side of his opponent’s face. Check out this incredible finish in the Tweet at the top of this post!
With this violent knockout, Ataides rebounded from a string of three-straight losses, including a TKO at the hands of former One middleweight champ Igor Svirid and a KO dealt by current contender Aleksei Butorin. He now sits at 9-3 overall.
Ali, meanwhile, is now on a three-fight losing streak of his own. With this loss, his overall record falls below the .500 mark to 10-11.
One Championship: Age of Domination is headlined by a heavyweight title fight between reigning champion Brandon Vera, and Japanese veteran Hideki “Big Body” Sekine. The co-main event, meanwhile, saw bantamweight champ Bibiano Fernandes attempt to defend his crown against Reece McLaren.
