In what may go down as the toughest title fight for ONE Championship in 2015, Marat “Cobra” Gafurov overcame a spirited effort from former champion Narantungalag Jadambaa to secure the featherweight world title by technical submission.

The headline fight at ONE Dynasty of Champions in Beijing saw Jadambaa and Gafurov slug it out over four exciting rounds, with both men traded heavy blows.

Jadambaa proved to the world that his striking is an absolute force to be reckoned with, battering Gafurov with well-timed kicks and pinpoint punching.

Gafurov however, dominated from top position with various submission attempts and ground-and-pound. In the end, Gafurov secured a breathtaking rear naked choke to put Jadambaa to sleep, coercing referee Olivier Coste to call a halt to the contest.

The fight capped off an exciting night for a packed out stadium in Beijing’s Olympic grounds where ONE Championship newcomer Kairat Akhmetov defeated Adriano Moraes for the flyweight title.

Akhmetov extends his running streak to 23 wins.

In the Beijing featherweight tournament, Yang Sen overcame Zhang Jia Cai with an impressive kimura at 35 seconds of round two to maintain his undefeated record and was crowned tournament champion.
