ONE Championship Warrior's Quest Results

May 25, 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Dubai, UAE: Physique TV, the region’s first and only 24 hour HD television channel dedicated to fitness, healthy living, combat sports, lifestyle and extreme sports, successfully aired another LIVE action-packed MMA event of ONE Championship: ‘WARRIOR’S QUEST’ to Middle East and North Africa (MENA) viewers.

In the main event, Shinya Aoki defeated Koji Ando to remain the ONE Lightweight World Champion. Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichok became the ONE Strawweight World Champion after beating Roy Doliguez.

Shinya Aoki retained his ONE Lightweight World Championship with a victory over Japanese compatriot Koji Ando. It was a calculated start from both fighters in the first two rounds, but action picked up in the third when Aoki shot for a takedown and a near-submission. The fifth round saw much of the same action as Aoki cruised to a unanimous decision.

In a contest for the inaugural ONE Strawweight World Championship, Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichok overcame his toughest challenge yet, in the form of Filipino Boxing champion Roy Doliguez. For the entire fight, both Dejdamrong and Doliguez blasted each other with powerful strikes. Dejdamrong found consistent success with his Muay Thai while Doliguez opted to shoot for takedowns while countering with his world-class Boxing. Dejdamrong was crowned champion after the fight went to a decision.

A highly-anticipated matchup between featherweights Ev Ting and Marat Gafurov ended in spectacular fashion, with Gafurov continuing his unbeaten streak with another tremendous submission victory over a high-level opponent. Towards the end of the first round, Gafurov was able to lock in a very deep rear naked choke that sealed the deal.

Lowen Tynanes dominated Kuat Khamitov for three rounds in a gruelling lightweight bout. A fairly timid first round saw Tynanes stalk an overly defensive Khamitov. Action picked up in the second as Tynanes was able to close the gap on Khamitov with a few successful takedowns. In the third, Tynanes banked on his superior wrestling ability to smother Khamitov on the mat with vicious ground and pound. All three judges were in favor of Tynanes via unanimous decision.

In a close-quarters battle, elite mixed martial artists Eddie Ng and Ariel Sexton went to war inside the ONE cage in an absolute epic. The end result was an impeccable submission victory by the tenacious Sexton, who put his entire offensive arsenal on display against his toughest opponent yet. As the tension built up in the second, Sexton turned to his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and after taking Ng to the mat, secured a rear naked choke to force Ng to tap out.

In an intense featherweight encounter, Shannon Wiratchai and Amir Khan took to the cage to go shot for shot. In the end, Wiratchai did just enough to defeat Khan, earning a hard-fought split decision. Angela Lee made a successful ONE Championship debut with an electrifying submission finish over Aya Saeid Saber.
