ONE Championship, the largest global sports media property in Asian history, has just launched a striking martial arts league called ONE Super Series. The new league made its debut at “ONE: Heroes of Honor” on April 20, 2018 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
ONE Super Series will eventually have its standalone event, according to ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong. But for now, the striking bouts of the new league will be mixed with the mixed martial arts bouts like on the “ONE: Heroes of Honor” fight card.
In the co-main event, international kickboxing superstar Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan made a spectacular ONE Championship debut, outworking former Lion Fight World Champion “Smokin’” Jo Nattawut of Thailand. In an offensive clinic against Nattawut, Petrosyan tore apart his opponent with the surgical precision he has become known for, putting together dynamic punch combinations in addition to his pinpoint accurate kicks.
Answering every strike that Nattawut unleashed, Petrosyan outworked his opponent to pick up a unanimous decision win in his first bout for ONE Super Series. Here are the official “ONE: Heroes of Honor” results:
