13 July 2018 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), treated fans to yet another exciting evening of world-class martial arts action. The packed Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia played host to ONE: PURSUIT OF POWER, which featured the absolute best in local and international martial arts talent. In the main event, Zebaztian “The Bandit” Kadestam of Sweden scored a rousing third-round TKO of hometown hero Agilan “Alligator” Thani of Malaysia.
Promotional newcomer Tyler McGuire of the United States scored the biggest win of his professional career, beating former world title contender Luis “Sapo” Santos of Brazil by unanimous decision in his ONE Championship debut. Both men provided fans with a tremendous display of offense in a contest that saw the two welterweights exchanging unyielding blows and momentum-shifting takedowns for three rounds.
