ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong awarded performance bonuses to a trio of top performers at ONE on Prime Video 4: Abbasov vs. Lee.
The main event saw lightweight king Lee survive an early scare against Kiamrian Abbasov to score a dramatic knockout win in the fourth round, capturing the ONE Welterweight World Title in the process.
Now a two-division king, “The Warrior” showed incredible heart and durability in addition to his seemingly endless gas tank throughout the fight.
The finish came in the fourth round, as the Singaporean-American hammered Abbasov with ferocious elbows from the mounted position.
Legendary Brazilian striker Alexandre impressed in the final bout of his storied career.
The 40-year-old finished Juan Cervantes in the second frame of their welterweight Muay Thai clash, finding a home for a right hand and then a vicious elbow from the clinch that put the UK athlete down for the count.
An emotional Alexandre announced his retirement after the fight and was awarded a cool US$50,000.
Kelly scored another victory for BJJ over sambo as she made quick work of Russian star Mariia Molchanova in atomweight submission grappling action, earning the first performance bonus of the evening and the second of her ONE Championship career.
The Philadelphia-bred grappler wasted little time working her way to Molchanova’s back, securing a picture-perfect rear-naked choke just over two minutes into the contest.
