Featherweight Grand Prix Semi Final:
Chin Heng vs. Samang Dun

Round 1

Heng with a double-leg takedown, as he slams Dun to the ground but has to defend a guillotine attempt. It looks deep but he powers out. Dun reverses the position and Heng throws up his legs looking for an armbar. After a few seconds Dun pulls his arm free and then throws a couple of punches from the standing position to the head of his grounded opponent, which is enough to finish the fight.

Meas Meu vs. Chan Heng

Round 1

Meu lands a straight knee, followed by an overhand right and then wraps his hands around the body of the much taller Heng and flings him to the ground. Heng attempts a guillotine but Meu bursts out and maneuvers him up against the cage only for Heng to wrap his long legs around and lock in a triangle. It looks deep but Meu explodes into action with ground and pound and Heng lets it go. Meu moves into mount and Heng tries unsuccessfully to buck him off before eating some hard elbows, one of which opens up a nasty looking cut. Heng is getting busted up and he gives up his back, allowing Meu to sink in a rear-naked choke which forces the tap.

Jian Kai Chee vs. Amir Khan

Round 1

Khan lands a left hook, which hurts Chee and follows up with a flurry of pinches. Chee weathers the storm. Khan fakes a punch and shoots for a double leg, which he executes perfectly, finishing up in side control. He moves into mount but Chee escapes and gets back up. After a brief feeling-out process on the feet, Khan explodes with a flurry of punches and elbows and Kai collapses to the ground in visible pain, causing the referee to step in to save him from further punishment.

Radeem Rahman vs. Ming Yen Sung

Round 1

Rahman goes for a takedown but it's stuffed and he ends up on his back after a quick scramble with Yen in side control. Rahman explodes out and they clinch against the cage with the Singaporean looking for the takedown but unable to complete it. They separate and there's a lull in the action until Yen catches a kick and throws Rahman to the ground. He lets him up but tosses him back to the ground again, only to eat a couple of punches as Rahman gets to his feet. Thy clinch against the cage again and Yen executes another toss but Rahman sinks his hooks in, takes his back and looks close to finishing the fight with a rear-naked choke when the round ends.

Round 2

Yen lands a one-two combination and easily pushes Rahman to the ground as the Singaporean attempts a switch kick. Another one-two combination from Yen hurts Rhaman, who backs off and dives for a takedown. He can't get Yen down but buys some time by tying him up and clinching against the cage. Yen lands a right hand, which Rahman wears well as the pace slows with both men reluctant to engage, but when Yen fires punches they inevitably find their target. Rahman is getting picked apart in the striking exchanges, but never looks badly hurt despite being repeatedly tagged.

Round 3

Yen lands a hard low kick and a couple of wild punches. He tries another low kick and Rahman counters with a well-timed jab. Rahman tries a head kick but Yen catches it and pushes him down, allows him back up only to take him down again with a clever trip. Yen elects to get up and walks away and is looking increasingly confident with very little offense coming from Rahman. The pace is slow and the referee asks for more action. Yen responds with a a well-executed hip toss which lands him in half guard but there's no action and the referee stands them up with a minute remaining. Yen knows he's ahead and seals the deal with another eye-catching trip. The fight finishes with Rahman on his back and Yen in side control. James Goyder has Sung Ming Yen winning a clear cut decision.

The Official Result

Ming Yen Sung Def. Radeem Rahman Decision R3 5:00

Suasday Chau vs. Arnaud Lepont

Round 1

Chau switching stances, he gets clipped with a right hook and promptly taken down by Lepont, who gets up and attempts a soccer kick. Chau tries for an armbar, but Lepont stomps on his head and he's badly hurt. The fight is paused and Lepont is extremely apologetic but Chau is taking a long time to recover and still looks groggy, but he eventually gets to his feet and Lepont is yellow carded before the fight recommences. They clinch and Lepont lands some knees and then knocks Chau onto his back, going to work with ground and pound. The referee is giving Chau every chance to recover but he's turtled up and taking serious punishment from the fists and elbows of Lepont so he has no option but to call a stop to the contest.

The Official Result

Arnaud Lepont Def. Suasday Chau TKO (Punches and Elbows) R1

Featherweight Grand Prix Finals: Chan Rothana vs. Samang Dun

Round 1

Samang Dun gets a body clinch and uses it to execute a trip, landing in mount with Rothana trapped against the cage. Dun rolls for a leg lock but gives it up quickly and stands up, only for Rothana to reciprocate with an unsuccessful leg lock attempt of his own. There's a scramble and Dun takes Rothana's back but he's too high and Rothana escapes and ends up in top position, moving from side control into mount. They stand up and exchange right hands before Rothana bullrushes Dun and puts him on his back, escaping a guillotine attempt and landing some hammer fists and a soccer kick which narrowly misses followed by an axe kick to the head of his grounded opponent which causes the referee to call a time out and pause the action. Stomps to the head of a grounded opponent are illegal under One FC rules. Dun is unable to recover and therefore wins the fight, and the tournament, as his opponent is disqualified.

Latoel is grimacing with pain but the bell sounds to save him.

Round 2

Latoel is letting his hands go and lands a couple of kicks, but Fodor presses forward and lands some knees from the clinch, forcing Latoel to dive for a takedown. He works for a the single leg but Fodor is able to defend it and land some punches to the side of Latoel's head in the process before pushing him down and landing up in side control with Latoel trapped against the cage. Fodor goes for the kimura again but Latoel fights it off and the American moves into a high mount.

A very uneventful opening round.
