Edge of Greatness saw a standout performance from Nong-O Gaiyanghadao, while Amir Khab and Ev Ting may find themselves in a rematch.
ONE Championship’s Edge of Greatness in Kallang, Singapore saw bantamweight Muay Thai champ Nong-O Gaiyanghadao retain his title in stunning fashion, securing a fourth-round knockout of challenger Saemapetch Fairtex. It was a statement win by Nong-O, who has a chance to reign supreme in the division for some time.
The evening’s co-main event was a much closer affair, however. Amir Khan took a close split decision against Ev Ting, in a fight that even ONE chief Chatri Sityodtong saw going the other way.
“Ev Ting vs Amir Khan was definitely a super close fight, but my personal opinion is that Ev won,” Sityodtong wrote on Facebook following the event. “ONE Championship works with some of the world’s best judges, referees, and officials. I respect their professional judgement. However, I do not think that a fighter who runs away with minimal output deserves to win. Amir was fighting not to lose while Ev was fighting to win. At the request of Ev Ting’s camp, the fight is under official review. The world wants to see a rematch.”
