ONE FC: ROAR OF TIGERS - Debutant Marat Gafurov submits veteran Rob Lisita in 68 seconds
Malaysia had 3 wins and 3 losses on the night
It was the perfect ONE Fighting Championship debut for former M1 Global champion Marat "Cobra" Gafurov (10-0) as he took only a bit over a minute in this main event to finish off one of ONE FC's most aggressive strikers, Rob "Ruthless Lisita. The bout started off with Lisita going in for a jab and two hard swings of overhead punches, which he failed to land cleanly. Gafurov then surprised and dropped the Australian with a loud and effective roundhouse kick to the head. Lisita was immediately recovering but not fast enough to prevent the Russian from climbing onto his back and pulling him back to the ground. Gafurov got the body triangle locked tight and patiently worked his arm deep into Lisita's neck for the rear naked choke which Lisita would reluctantly tap out to.
