Sasha Moisa, 25, of Odessa, Ukraine was one of the winners at “ONE Warrior Series 10.” It was his first fight and first victory in the ONE Championship subsidiary.

Featuring two kickboxing bouts and 12 mixed martial arts matches, “ONE Warrior Series 10” took place in Singapore on February 19, 2020. In the 11th bout of the evening, Moisa competed in a kickboxing contest in the featherweight division against Shahzaib “King” Rindh, 21, of Quetta, Pakistan.

The referee put a stop to the featherweight contest after 2 minutes and 10 seconds in the third round. Moisa knocked out Rindh via right straight.

Previously, Moisa competed in ONE Championship’s striking-only league ONE Super Series. On May 17, 2019, he was knocked out via punches by “Smokin’” Jo Nattawut, 30, of Thailand in a kickboxing bout at “ONE: Enter the Dragon” at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.

Moisa is training out of Venum Training Camp Thailand in Pattaya, Thailand and Bezhad Warrior Academy in Bangkok, Thailand. He started his judo training when he was 13 and his Muay Thai training when he was 18.
