On May 12, 2018, ONE Championship crowned a new but old champion at the Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia. Like in the previous events of the promotion in 2018, ONE Super Series bouts and mixed martial arts matches were intertwined at “ONE: Grit and Glory.”
On the ONE Super Series card, there were two bouts, the first of which was between Ognjen Topic of Serbia and Stergos “Greek Dynamite” Mikkios of Greece. The Serbian contender emerged triumphant against his Greek opponent via unanimous decision in a three-round Muay Thai clash.
Featuring plenty of action and excitement, both men traded their best shots from bell to bell but it was Topic who showcased superior technique, plastering Mikkios with crisp elbow strikes and lashing kicks to the body. All three judges ruled the bout in favor of the Serbian fighter.
