In the third and final frame, Folayang had more success defending the takedowns as he continued to work Zhang’s legs. But a huge slam toward the end of the round sealed the deal for the Chinese stalwart. All three judges scored the bout for Zhang to win by unanimous decision.
Former ONE strawweight champion and current No. 5-ranked strawweight contender Alex Silva utilized his expert grappling to stifle Chinese opponent Miao Li Tao on the mat and earn a clear-cut unanimous decision. Silva threatened with submissions early in the first round, catching Miao in a deep armbar attempt. The grappling dominance continued in the second and third frames, allowing the Brazilian to pull ahead on the scorecards.
The highly-anticipated clash between promotional newcomer Thomas Narmo and heavyweight sensation Alain Ngalani ended prematurely after an unintentional foul from Ngalani left the Norwegian fighter unable to continue in the second round. The bout was ruled a no contest.
