Tawanchai PK Saenchai Davit Kiria ONE Fight Night 13 46

There were plenty of thrilling matches and highlight-reel finishes at ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian on Prime Video, which aired live in U.S. primetime from the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on Friday, August 4.

Several athletes put on truly spectacular performances and earned some extra cash in the process.

ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong awarded US$50,000 performance bonuses to flyweight submission grappling king Mikey Musumeci, Thai superstar Tawanchai PK Saenchai, Senegalese wrestler “Reug Reug” Oumar Kane, grappling sensation Tye Ruotolo, and Mongolian scrapper Enkh-Orgil Baatarkhuu.

In the co-main event, “Darth Rigatoni” showed why he might be the planet’s top pound-for-pound submission grappler, as he emerged victorious over ONE Strawweight MMA World Champion Jarred “The Monkey God” Brooks.

Musumeci attacked early and often, ultimately finding the match-ending triangle armbar late in the battle to retain his ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling World Title. The finish also earned him US$50,000.

Tawanchai put on a show for the raucous Thai crowd in his first ONE kickboxing bout, securing a stunning third-round TKO against former Glory Kickboxing World Champion Davit Kiria.

The featherweight Muay Thai king’s thunderous left kick was on point all night, eventually shattering his foe’s right arm in the final frame to earn a well-deserved performance bonus.

“Reug Reug” scored the biggest win of his MMA career and a cool US$50,000 thanks to his incredible performance against 17-time BJJ World Champion Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida.

The Senegalese wrestling star engaged in an all-out war for three rounds and left the ring with a unanimous decision in one of the wildest fights in recent memory.

Ruotolo picked up his fourth victory in ONE, secured a Welterweight Submission Grappling World Title shot, and a US$50,000 performance bonus with his win over #2-ranked lightweight MMA contender Dagi Arslanaliev.

The 20-year-old American phenom displayed his trademark aggression throughout the bout as he chained together a series of submission attempts. In the end, he sunk in a clean rear-naked choke within three minutes.

Baatarkhuu took home the evening’s first US$50,000 bonus thanks to his second-round submission victory over the previously undefeated Jhanlo Mark Sangiao.

The Mongolian survived a tough opening frame, but he stormed back in round two, imposed his suffocating grappling game, and secured the match-ending kimura.
