Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, Amir Khan, and Colbey Northcutt were among the names to keep an eye on at ONE Championship: Edge of Greatness on Friday.
ONE Championship’s Edge of Greatness card unfolded in Kallang, Singapore on Friday, less than a month after the UFC’s own excursion to the Asian nation. How would the latest ONE card shape up against the competition? While the UFC brought out Ben Askren, a former ONE star, Chatri Sityodtong and company opted to put a Muay Thai title fight atop their card.
That fight saw champ Nong-O Gaiyanghadao attempt to defend his title against the rising Saemapetch Fairtex. In MMA action, meanwhile, the evening’s co-main event witnessed Singapore’s own Amir Khan go to war against Malaysian-Kiwi Ev Ting.
Also notable, Colbey Northcutt, big sister of former UFC star and current ONE athlete Sage Northcutt, made her promotional debut. She faced off against Putri Padmi of Indonesia.
