Shamil Gasanov Overwhelms Oh Ho Taek To Win By Unanimous Decision In ONE Fight Night 18 Main Event

ONE Championship™ (ONE) orchestrated an electrifying night of martial arts drama with ONE Fight Night 18: Gasanov vs. Oh, dazzling the U.S. primetime audience.

In the headline attraction, Shamil “The Cobra” Gasanov, sitting at #4 in the featherweight MMA ranks, showcased his grappling wizardry to triumph over “Spider” Oh Ho Taek. The Russian behemoth penned a masterclass, using his ground game superiority to dance circles around Oh from start to finish.

During the second act, “The Cobra” nearly clinched victory with a suffocating rear-naked choke, but his South Korean adversary displayed remarkable tenacity, wriggling out and dragging the clash into round three.

In the finale, Gasanov resumed his dominance, weaving his grappling magic to clinch a unanimous decision win.

The evening’s second star attraction saw Suablack Tor Pran49 dig deep to edge out Stefan Korodi in a nail-biting bantamweight Muay Thai skirmish. Despite a promising opening, Suablack hit a snag when Korodi’s thunderous right hand floored the Thai. However, beating the count, Suablack bounced back with a flurry of punishing strikes, flooring the Irishman twice, flipping the script in that very round.

In the concluding chapter, both warriors stood firm, unleashing their mightiest blows. Suablack’s lethal combination striking eventually tipped the scales in his favor, earning him a unanimous nod on the scorecards.
