Jeff “From MMAShredded” Chan, 28, of Canada was one of the winners at “ONE: King of the Jungle.” It was his fourth victory in ONE Championship.

Featuring one Muay Thai title bout, one kickboxing title bout and nine mixed martial arts matches, “ONE: King of the Jungle” was a closed-door event held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. In the first bout of the evening, Chan competed in an MMA match in the bantamweight division against Radeem Rahman, 32, of Singapore.

Olivier Coste served as the referee. From the opening bell, Chan immediately went on the offensive, peppering Rahman with fast and powerful combinations in the first round.

However, it did not take long for action to hit the ground and Chan and Rahman proceeded to jockey for position. The Canadian contender was able to put in some good ground-and-pound for his efforts.

In the second round, Chan dominated once again, taking Rahman down off a failed shot from the latter and then worked his way to take back position. Coste put a stop to the bantamweight contest after 2 minutes in the second round when the Canadian contender submitted his Singaporean opponent via rear-naked choke.

Winning at “ONE: King of the Jungle” improved the professional MMA record of Chan to 4 wins and 1 loss. On the other hand, Rahman now has 3 wins and 3 losses.

Including Singapore and Canada, 13 countries were represented at “ONE: King of the Jungle.” The others were Australia, China, Egypt, India, Japan, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, South Korea, Thailand and the United States.

Training out of Phuket Top Team, Rahman was one of the three hometown fighters. “ONE: King of the Jungle” marked his sixth outing in ONE Championship.

Chan solely represented Canada. He is training out of Tristar and he made his ONE Championship debut at “ONE: King of the Jungle.”
