ONE: Masters of Fate results and highlights – Flashy finishes galore in Manila

Li Kai Wen, ONE: Masters of Fate

On Friday, ONE Championship returned to Manila, Philippines with ONE: Masters of Fate.

The card was topped by a strawweight title fight between reigning champion Joshua Pacio, and a fellow Filipino in Rene Catalan. Despite a brief scare from Catalan, Pacio retained his title with a second-round submission win.

In the co-main event, Filipino legend Eduard Folayang took on rising Mongolian contender Amarsanaa Tsogookhuu. This fight ended via technical decision after an inadvertent clash of heads forced an early end to the action. The judges awarded the win to Folayang.

Other highlights of the ONE: Masters of Fate card included blistering knockout victories from surging bantamweight contender Li Kai and former flyweight champion Geje Eustaquio, and an absolute war between atomweight stars Stamp Fairtex and Bi Nguyen.
