The athletes who competed at ONE on Prime Video 2: Xiong vs. Lee III this past Friday, September 30, impressed the global fan base.
However, two MMA fighters stood out with their victories and gamesmanship, which earned them a pair of US$50,000 performance bonuses from ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
Freymanov earned an extra US$50,000 check for his extraordinary debut.
The Russian striker constantly attacked former two-division ONE World Champion and #3-ranked featherweight contender Martin Nguyen, ultimately dropping the Vietnamese-Australian with a straight right and finishing him with grounded knees to capture a first-round TKO victory.
Amir received the first performance bonus of the night for his jaw-dropping debut, too.
The undefeated Turkey resident shocked former ONE World Title challenger and #3-ranked lightweight contender Timofey Nastyukhin, scoring a second-round knockout to make his presence felt on the global stage.
