In total, the Zorky’s MMA representative has recorded four wins in The Home Of Martial Arts’ proving ground for up-and-coming talent, including three consecutive victories so far in 2019.

The 22-year-old made the step up to the featherweight division for his latest match, and carried his power with him as he overwhelmed his South Korean opponent with punches.

Now 5-2 as a professional, the Ulaanbaatar resident will move up to ONE’s main roster and compete on the promotion’s flagship live events in the coming months.

Rich Franklin, CEO of ONE Warrior Series, said: “This season, we’ve had a steady influx of top-notch talent walk through our doors. In the end, it was Shine who impressed the most and we feel he is ready for the bright lights of the ONE Championship Circle.

“Shine has shown a warrior spirit from day one in the organization and has been through some wars. He has definitely earned this contract. I look for him to do big things in ONE!”

The 16 contests at OWS 6 produced an abundance of impressive performances, including 12 finishes. Also, six athletes were given Warrior Bonuses for their displays of excellence.

China’s Xie Xiaoxiang was rewarded for his second-round TKO of Thailand’s Nat Natchayangkul.

South Korea’s Ji Yeon Seo also grabbed a bonus for an impressive win thanks to her third-round TKO of Malaysian martial artist Edilah Johany.

Four more competitors also took a bonus home for their parts in two of the most exciting bouts of the night.

Satomi Takano may have finished Michele Ferreira via armbar in the second round, but their showdown packed more action into just a few minutes than many contests that last double the length.

Jerry Olsim and Myeong Gu Kim were also rewarded for their efforts as they battled back and forth for all 15 minutes before Olsim emerged with a unanimous decision.
