ONE Championship returned to the Middle East for the first time in a decade with ONE 166: Qatar this past Friday, March 1.

History was made in the main event at Lusail Sports Arena in Qatar, as ONE Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight MMA World Champion Anatoly Malykhin defeated middleweight king Reinier de Ridder via third-round TKO to claim his gold and become the first man ever to hold three MMA World Titles simultaneously.

Also, ONE Featherweight MMA World Champion Tang Kai knocked out longtime foe and interim titleholder Thanh Le to unify the belts, and Joshua Pacio reclaimed the ONE Strawweight MMA World Title from American rival Jarred Brooks as a result of a disqualification.

With the dust settled, take a look at all of the best pictures from the blockbuster spectacle, courtesy of ONE Championship’s Circle-side photographers.
