Luis Santos took advantage of the rules in ONE Championship Saturday, finishing Rafael Silva with a combination of a knee and soccer kicks to secure a win in the headline bout.
The card went down from Indonesia and presented the first opportunity for Santos to fight since a no-contest with ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren.
A planned rematch between Askren and Santos was called off the day of the fight after “Sapo” failed to make weight.
There were no issues with that this time, as Santos improved to 62-9-1 with a 77-second finish of Silva.
In other action, former ONE champion Kotetsu Boku finished Vincent Latoel, Andrew Leone returned from an extended hiatus to score a decision victory and Angela Lee moved to 5-0 with her fifth career submission.
