Martin Nguyen Fights For Something Greater

Martin Nguyen lost his first shot at a ONE World Title when he was submitted by Marat Gafurov in just 41 seconds. The Vietnamese-Australian did not give up, racking up four finishes in his next four fights to earn another shot at Gafurov. The Russian put Nguyen in a tough spot early in the first round, threatening a repeat of their first bout. But with the memory of his late father in mind, Nguyen dug deep, escaping from Gafurov’s back control and knocking him out with a massive overhand right to claim the ONE Lightweight World Title!
