The decorated wrestler didn’t waste much time taking the fight to the ground. The game plan for the Evolve athlete was obvious and she stuck to it – dominating Nou Srey Pov to finish the fight via Ground and Pound in the second round.

Antonio Caruso couldn’t have had a bigger mountain to climb for his rebound fight than facing former Lightweight Champion Eduard Folayang.

But the Australian Sanford MMA product brought his wrestling in the first round and even dropped the Lakay athlete early in the second.

While he wasn’t able to seal the deal, Caruso won comfortably with a Unanimous Decision.

The first title fight of the night was the only one to see the judge’s scorecards, but it was the most brutal bout on the card.

Both women exchanged blows throughout the all five rounds and have the scars to prove it.

Unfortunately, Singapore will have to wait a bit longer for its next Champion as the Panda out struck the challenger for another Unanimous Decision.

Most analysts saw this fight ending with a knockout. Except nobody was sure on which side.

Thanh Le proved that it only takes one shot to turn a fight, as he caught a Martin Nguyen who was ahead on the scores at that point in the third round.

This is Nguyen’s first loss at Featherweight since 2015 and his reign officially ends at 3 years, 2 months, and 12 days.

Many were anticipating Lee’s first title defense and he did not disappoint.

Iuri Lapicus blazed through the Lightweight division at the fastest pace anyone’s seen in years.

Unfortunately, it may have been too much too soon for the Moldovan as Christian Lee ended his night early with a Ground and Pound finish in the first round.

Not since Eduard Folayang versus Shinya Aoki has there been such a monumental upset in ONE Championship.

When I sat down to write down this article for the ONE: Inside the Matrix results – this was the last thing I expected to write.

An entire nation watched in stunned silence last night as their immortal hero succumbed to a Rear Naked Choke in the first round.

The repercussions Inside the Matrix will have on the rest of the promotion will be profound. It’s a time great excitement and mourning for many.

This is Aung La’s first loss since 2017 and his reign officially ends at 3 years and four months.

Time will tell where the winners and losers of the night will end up, but the ONE: Inside the Matrix results will definitely be mentioned a lot as a crossroads for many of the fighters.
