Asia’s ONE Championship had one last show to finish off an explosive 2018, hosting Destiny of Champions in Kuala Lumpur Friday.
ONE Championship was back in action Friday with their final show of 2018. Destiny of Champions went down at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and featured Muay Thai action atop the card. Yet there was still plenty of MMA content as well, with Mei Yamaguchi, Alex Silva, and former middleweight champion Vitaly Bigdash all on the docket.
Malaysia’s own Agilan Thani was also in action, taking on Kiamrian Abbasov. Thani (9-2) had last fought in July, losing to Zebaztian Kadestam, who went on to win the welterweight title last month. With the division wide open and a new champion crowned, Thani, who had once challenged Ben Askren for welterweight gold in ONE, had an opportunity to inch closer to another crack at the title.
Another big story line on the ONE Championship: Destiny of Champions card, three bouts on the women’s side of the sport, at atomweight, flyweight, and strawweight.
Then in the main event, Yodanklai IWE Fairtex taking on Australia’s Luis Regis in Muay Thai action.
