ONE Championship returned to Singapore in a big way over the weekend. On Friday night, the promotion hosted Inside the Matrix, with limited fan attendance — and four full title fights on the card.
It was a night full of intense action, exciting finishes, and upsets. Two champions were dethroned, with Martin Nguyen dropping the featherweight title to Thanh Le, and Aung La N Sang losing his middleweight crown (he also holds light heavyweight gold) to Reinier de Ridder.
Christian Lee (lightweight) and Xiong Jing Nan (women’s strawweight) both retained their titles.
Check below for a gallery of highlights from Inside the Matrix.
