MMA Heavyweight Fight:
Patrick Schmid vs. Oumar Kane

Round 1

Senegalese wrestler “Reug Reug” (2-0 | 1-0 One FC) looks to continue his reign of terror against late replacement opponent Schmid (0-0), an MMA neophyte who was previously scheduled to appear in a kickboxing match on this card. The referee for this heavyweight affair is Mohammed Suleiman. A touch of gloves, and they’re off! Both men in orthodox stance. Schmid is coming forward, throwing outside low kicks and reaching with jab. Kane charges forward behind big left and right hooks and catches Schmid with five or six punches as he stumbles backward. Kane gets an underhook and trip near the fence and dumps Schmid onto his back. The Swiss kickboxer scrambles and wriggles away, but “Reug Reug” is all over him, landing in north-south, then finally to the side of a kneeling Schmid, throwing huge punches to the side of the head. Ref Suleiman implores Schmid to move, but a few seconds later he is forced to stop the beating. Dominant work by the big man from Senegal.

The Official Result

Oumar Kane def. Patrick Schmid R1 1:48 via TKO (Punches)

Kickboxing Featherweight Fight:
Chingiz Allazov vs. Enriko Kehl

Round 1

2017 K-1 Super Welterweight World Grand Prix winner Allazov makes his One debut against former K-1 Max world champ Kehl. The two have met before, with Allazov winning their first meeting by knockout five years ago. NB: Your friendly neighborhood play-by-play man is a kickboxing aficionado, but in no way an expert. Veteran referee Olivier Coste is the third man in the cage. Allazov early on throwing outside low kicks and push kicks up the middle as Kehl advances relentlessly in southpaw. First mention of the Aggress-O-Meter by Michael Schivavello this evening, for those who have it on their bingo card. Two minutes into the (three-minute) round, Allazov has started to land his left hook to the body, out of both stances. His left kick has reddened the right arm and shoulder of Kehl. Allazov shoves Kehl to the ground just before the bell. 10-9 Allazov.

Round 2

Kehl marches forward again, throwing punch combinations. Allazov gives ground and throws kicks on the counter. One kick up high tags Kehl on the face, but he shrugs it off. Halfway into the round, Kehl catches a kick and dumps Allazov onto his seat. A minute left, Kehl is still the aggressor, coming forward and outthrowing Allazov by what feels like about three-to-one. Allazov slips against the fence, and Coste has him stand. Allazov is more aggressive after the slip. 10-9 Kehl.

Round 3

The final round sees Kehl continuing to walk Allazov down, throwing punches. Allazov is landing kicks with both legs, and whether they land to the leg, ribs or even to Kehl’s guard, they’re all leaving their mark. Halfway into the round, Coste breaks a clinch, and Allazov nails Kehl with a kick up the middle right after. Thirty seconds left and Kehl throws a flurry of punches that clatter off Allazov’s high guard. Tough round to score. The bell sounds on a fun, high-paced kickboxing match. 10-9 Kehl (29-28 Kehl)

The Official Result

Enrico Kehl def. Chingiz Allazov via Split Decision. No scores are announced.

MMA Welterweight Fight:
Tyler McGuire vs. Raimond Magomedaliev

Round 1

McGuire (12-1 | 2-1 One FC) and Magomedaliev (7-1 | 2-1 One FC) kick off the main card with a welterweight contenders’ matchup. The third man in the cage is Mohamad Suleiman. They touch gloves and get to business. McGuire runs Magomedaliev to the fence and is punished with a series of knees up the middle for his efforts. One knee strikes the cup, and Suleiman halts the action so McGuire can recover. They resume striking, both men in orthodox, and McGuire wastes no time in running Magomedaliev to the fence once again. Magomedaliev fights his way off the fence, but they remain clinched up, throwing short uppercuts. Magomedaliev throws a couple of very short kicks to the claves of McGuire. Magomedaliev turns his hips and looks to throw McGuire with an overhook, but McGuire pops back up. A minute left and they finally break. McGuire is bleeding from over the right eye as he shoves Magomedaliev to the fence yet again. The round ends there. 10-9 Magomedaliev.

Round 2

McGuire comes forward behind a one-two and looks for the clinch, but Magomedaliev meets him with knees and shoves him away. A glancing cup shot by the American is waved away by Magomedaliev. McGuire drops levels for his first real takedown attempt. It’s deep, but Magomedaliev fights it off, perhaps with a little tiny help from a fence grab. Suleiman cautions him, and McGuire finishes the takedown a moment later, but Magomedaliev reverses him instantly and lands on top. They scramble and return to their feet, and Magomedaliev scores a takedown of his own with a nice lateral drop. McGuire jumps back up. They clinch, but disengage. McGuire shoots again, but Magomedaliev stands him up easily. Thirty seconds left, and they’re clinching against the fence. When they break, McGuire’s pace has slowed noticeably. Magomedaliev tries a rolling kick at the clapper, but McGuire lands on top. The round ends. 10-9 Magomedaliev.

Round 3

The welterweights touch gloves before the final round. McGuire catches Magomedaliev’s first inside knee and dumps him to the canvas, landing in half guard. Magomedaliev controls him with an overhook and throws heel kicks to McGuire’s left leg. The American is on top but not doing much damage, let alone enough to make up a likely two-round deficit. The pass to mount appears to be there, but McGuire either doesn’t see it or elects to stay in half guard, throwing short punches. Magomedaliev regains full guard as they scoot towards the center of the cage. He throws his legs up for a possible submission attempt, and a moment later grabs a kimura and uses it to sweep to top position. After a punches to McGuire’s head, Magomedaliev gets up. McGuire pushes him to the fence. 90 seconds left, both men breathing heavily. Magomedaliev gets an easy double-leg takedown, and gets a front headlock as McGuire stands. He goes for a guillotine choke, but McGuire lands on top in half-guard, no danger. The round ends. 10-9 Magomedaliev (30-27 Magomedaliev).

The Official Result

Raimond Magomedaliev def. Tyler McGuire via Unanimous Decision. No scores are announced.

MMA Lightweight Fight:
Eddie Alvarez vs. Iuri Lapicus

Round 1

The lightweight co-main event features former Bellator and UFC champion Alvarez (30-7, 1 NC | 1-1 One FC), looking to go over .500 in his new promotion against Lapicus (14-1 | 2-1 One FC), who will seek to bounce back from his first career loss at the hands of One lightweight champ Christian Lee last October. Justin Brown is set to officiate. They set up in matching orthodox stances and, after a few tentative early exchanges of single kicks and jabs, Alvarez drops for a double-leg takedown. He gets Lapicus to his rear at the base of the fence and laces both legs with his own, Khabib Nurmagomedov-style. He begins throwing punches to Lapicus’ head, and the referee cautions him against striking the back of the head. Lapicus turns his head to the right, exposing the back of the head, and the referee breaks up the action as Lapicus falls to his back in apparent distress. Alvarez is protesting that he was hitting the ear, and the One booth is running replay after replay while Lapicus lays supine on the canvas. The blows looked incredibly innocuous to your play-by-play man, but only one opinion matters at the moment, and referee Brown holds up a red card for Alvarez, who is sitting dejected against the cage. Disqualification.

The Official Result

Iuri Lapicus def. Eddie Alvarez in Round 1 via Disqualification (Punches to Back of Head). There is no official in-cage announcement, but the stoppage came right around the one-minute mark.

One Flyweight MMA Title Fight:
Adriano Moraes vs. Demetrious Johnson

Round 1

Three-time One Championship flyweight champ Moraes, the only man in divisional history to successfully defend the belt, toes the line against 2019 Flyweight Grand Prix winner Johnson, who is of course best known for his record-setting run in the UFC 125-pound division. It’s for all the marbles, it’s one of the biggest small-man fights of the year, and it takes place under the watchful eye of referee Olivier Coste. They touch gloves, and the first strike landed is an outside leg kick by the challenger. Moraes is bouncing around the outside, sliding laterally and Johnson cuts off the cage and advances. Johnson switching stances early on, throwing leg kicks from both sides. Moraes reaching with the job, but not throwing a whole lot early on. Two minutes in, Johnson runs Moraes to the fence and lends two knee strikes, the second of them almost a jumper. They break and move back to the center of the cage. Moraes catches a kick and looks for the takedown, but it’s Johnson who lands on top. Moraes immediately starts working for a heel hook, and when Johnson defends, Moraes takes top position. Moraes in the challenger’s half guard against the fence, with his right arm under Johnson’s neck. Johnson tries to wall-walk, but is dragged away from the cage. Johnson still active from underneath, working half-butterfly guard and trying a knee shield, looking for the chance to pop back up. Moraes throws short, chipping shots from top position as the bell sounds. 10-9 Moraes.

Round 2

Both men are more active to open Round 2, throwing immediately. Johnson is more aggressive, dashing into punching range and throwing to the head. Johnson lands a step-in knee. Moraes returns fire with jabs and low kicks. Johnson grabs a slow knee strike and as he lets go, Moraes catches him with a left hand to the face. Johnson stumbles backward against the fence and Moraes is all over him. He lands a pair of glancing punches, then a crushing knee that lands flush to the jaw of the seated “Mighty Mouse,” leveling him. It’s all over as Coste rushes in for the stop. Sensational, sudden finish by your One Championship flyweight champ — still — Adriano Moraes.

The Official Result

Adriano Moraes def. Demetrious Johnson R2 2:24 via KO (Knee)

Muay Thai Catch Weight Fight:
Rodtang Jitmuangnon vs. Danial Williams

Round 1

If MMA was dinner, consider “Rodtang in four-ounce gloves” dessert. The awesomely violent One flyweight muay Thai champion takes on Aussie promotional newcomer Williams in this muay Thai catchweight matchup. Olivier Coste will oversee the main event. NB: As with the kickboxing match earlier, your friendly neighborhood play-by-play man is a MT aficionado, but in no way an expert. They exchange leg and body kicks from orthodox stance in the opening moments. Williams throwing a lead left several times with success. Williams drops an off-balance Rodtang to his seat with a right hand, more of a slip than a knockdown. Rodtang backs up Williams with a side kick to the breadbasket. Williams looking to counter Rodtang’s kicks with a murderous right hand. He’s landed it a few times, but not flush. The bell sounds on a tense three minutes. 10-9 Williams.

Round 2

Rodtang is busy with leg kicks early on, stinging Williams to both legs. He steps in with short hooks to the body underneath Williams’ counters. Rodtang lands a brutal left hook to the body, then one to the head. Then another, and a third, which drops Williams to his seat. That’s a knockdown. Williams gets right back up, but he’s clearly hurt. He throws a spinning back elbow that misses, and Rodtang is all over him, throwing punches and a clinch elbow. Williams staggers away as the champ gives chase, stumbling and nearly putting him down with a hard teep to the midsection. Williams is shaky but still standing tow-to-toe and throwing back at Rodtang. The bell sounds. Big round for Rodtang. 10-8 Jitmuangnon.

Round 3

Williams is bleeding from outside the left eye as the final round starts. Rodtang is marching forward, feinting, and Williams throws a superman elbow that glances off. Rodtang switches stances, but isn’t throwing much as Williams matches forward and punches. Williams throws a three-piece that lands. They clinch and Rodtang comes away covered with Williams’ blood, which leads him to ask for a timeout to clean up. They go back to work and exchange hacking low kicks. They crash into the pocket and both throw elbows. Under a minute left and Williams is still coming forward, throwing punches. Williams throws a body kick that lands at the bell. 10-9 Williams (28-28 draw).

The Official Result

Rodtang Jitmuangnon def. Danial Williams via Unanimous Decision. No scores are announced.
