09 December 2017 – Bangkok, Thailand: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), sent shockwaves throughout the iconic Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand with an exciting evening of world-class martial arts action. “ONE: Warriors of the World” showcased a series of compelling bouts, punctuated by a thrilling headliner that left fans on the edge of their seats.
In the main event, Brazilian submission wizard Alex “Little Rock” Silva captured the coveted ONE Strawweight World Championship with a masterful display of striking, edging out previously unbeaten champion Yoshitaka “Nobita” Naito of Japan. In one of the main card bouts, rising Thai martial arts superstar Rika “Tinydoll” Ishige showcased an improved striking arsenal, comfortably exchanging combinations with opponent Rome “The Rebel” Trinidad of the Philippines over the course of two rounds before scoring an exciting submission finish.
Ishige and Trinidad kept the action focused primarily at the center of the ONE Championship cage for the majority of the bout. Towards the end of the second round however, Ishige took Trinidad’s back, brought her to the mat and sunk in a bout-ending rear naked choke to force the tap.
