ONE on Prime Video 5: De Ridder vs. Malykhin took place on Friday, December 2, at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, and featured a pair of unforgettable World Title fights.

In the show’s headliner, ONE Interim Heavyweight World Champion Anatoly Malykhin finished previously undefeated and former two-division king Reinier de Ridder in a battle that stunned ONE’s global fan base.

It took only one round for “Sladkiy” to drop De Ridder with a flurry of blows and leave the Circle with the latter’s ONE Light Heavyweight World Title and coveted double-champ status.

The co-main event saw BJJ great Kade Ruotolo defend his ONE Lightweight Submission Grappling World Title against a game Matheus Gabriel. The 19-year-old worked out of Gabriel’s guard and attacked with a series of submission attempts to get the nod.

Check out the evening’s best moments through the lenses of ONE’s Circle-side photographers.
