ONE Championship returned to action on Friday night in Singapore with two titles changing hands at the top of another dramatic card. In the main event, Christian Lee dominated Ok Rae-yoon en route to a second-round TKO victory to reclaim the lightweight MMA belt. In the co-main event, China’s Tang Kai captured the ONE featherweight title with an impressive decision win over Vietnamese-American knockout artist Thanh Le, becoming China’s first male MMA champ in the martial arts promotion. Get caught up on all the results from ONE 160 here. Lee reclaims title with brutal TKO “The Warrior” Christian Lee left no doubt this time. The 24-year-old Canadian-American first met South Korea’s Ok in September 2021, surrendering the promotion’s lightweight title with a controversial decision loss. The pair finally partook in an anticipated rematch in the ONE 160 main event, and Lee made it look easy, pummelling his 31-year-old foe to a second-round stoppage with a vicious volley of punches and grounded knees.

You mix with that with all the work I’ve put in, that’s what you get.” Lee went on to reiterate the claims he has been making since his controversial loss to Ok (16-4) last year—that he did not fight to his full potential the first time he met the Korean. “I thought I won it at 50 per cent,” he said. “This is me at 100 per cent. I calmed it down a little bit. We laid out a game plan and I stuck to it.” Lee’s win over Ok was so impressive that ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong awarded him a US$50,000 performance bonus. While the new champion intends to take some time off to enjoy his victory, he promised that his work is far from over. “I put in a lot of hard work to get here but I’m not done,” he said. Tang makes history for China China’s Tang Kai (15-2) can proudly call himself the first male Chinese fighter to win a major MMA title. The 26-year-old won featherweight gold in the ONE 160 co-main event, defeating highly-regarded champion Thanh Le, 37, by unanimous decision. “I feel extremely happy and grateful at this moment,” he said in his post-fight interview with commentator Mitch Chilson, barely breathing heavily despite his five-round battle with Le. “I want to thank my team, my brothers who gave me support, and all the fans who have been by my side.” Tang Kai CHOPS the leg! 🪓 #ONE160 #ONEChampionship 🇺🇸🇨🇦🇹🇭 Watch live on ONE YouTube 👉 https://t.co/BiFG3Yw0fA 🌍 Watch live on PPV 👉 https://t.co/8MeKhRMtjy pic.twitter.com/3x9GQQoU9a — ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) August 26, 2022 “I did it,” he added. “I’m so proud I can bring this belt home.” Le (13-3) had his moments in the match-up, but Tang controlled the bulk of the action with leg kicks and crackling punches – several of which sent Le tumbling to the mat. “Thanh Le is a lot tougher of an opponent than I expected,” Tang said, giving the vanquished champion his due respect. “I want to thank Thanh for putting on such a great show. I didn’t expect at his age for him to have such great stamina. “I was pretty amazed by Thanh Le actually.” Saemapetch scores devastating KO over Rittewada Thailand’s Saemapetch Fairtex scored one of the most vicious knockouts in recent memory at ONE 160, flattening his countryman Rittewada Petchyindee with a crackling counter left hand in the second round of a bantamweight Muay Thai fight.

He eventually swarmed Elliott on the ground and delivered some devastating hammer fists, and it didn’t take long before referee Herb Dean had seen enough.

He was the more aggressive party throughout the match-up, threatening with a guillotine choke, an armbar, an arm-in triangle, and more.
