Vitaly Bigdash Wins Title, Ann Osman Upset at ONE: Tigers of Asia

Today’s ONE Championship event in Malaysia, dubbed “Tigers of Asia,” saw dramatic knockouts in its two featured bouts.

Russian Vitaly Bigdash had to rise from the canvas to score a TKO victory in the show’s main event. Bigdash, who had been floored by his opponent, ONE middleweight titlist Igor Svirid early in round one, scored a knockdown of his own later in the stanza and eventually recorded a TKO victory at 0:36 of round two.

Bigdash improved his MMA record to 8-0 with the win and earned the ONE 185 lb belt. Svirid, of Kazakhstan, drops to 10-2 with the loss.

The co-main event saw Malaysia’s own Ann Osman fall to Russia’s Irina Mazepa in a stunning first round knockout.

Osman used her typical grappling attack to control the early going, but Mazepa was able to escape a stoppage in the mount position. After the action moved to the feet — and after defending a takedown with an illegal hold of the fence — Mazepa showed impressive punching combinations. Osman was stunned and dropped by a left hook and the referee called a halt to the action at 3:05 of round one.
