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 second of which was between Sergej Maslobojev of Lithuania and Antonio Plazibat of Croatian. The Lithuanian fighter authored a stellar performance to the delight of the crowd by routing his Croatian foe in their highly anticipated rematch.
Although Plazibat sought redemption of the highest order and proved that he was a much different kickboxer than when they first met two years ago, Maslobojev showcased his trademark power, catching his opponent with powerful hooks while blasting his counterpart with thunderous high kicks. The Lithuanian kickboxer closed out the final round of the match on a strong note, unleashing a volley of punches that steered him to a unanimous decision win.
