Colbey Northcutt Makes Successful Debut at One: Edge of Greatness

By Tudor Leonte Nov 22, 2019


One Championship made a stop in Singapore once again as One: Edge of Greatness went down on Nov. 22 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Colbey Northcutt had to sweat out her One debut for all three rounds, but she eventually managed to edge Putri Padmi. Northcutt (1-1) came close to securing a submission victory after nearly locking a vicious armbar up twice in the opening frame. Her opponent was able to defend both attempts, but could not come up with some offense of her own, ending the round saved by the bell in a tight triangle choke. In the second stanza, the former Legacy Fighting Alliance competitor Northcutt started landing with her jab, taking advantage of her longer reach. The story of the bout was the sister of former Ultimate Fighting Championship veteran Sage Northcutt dictating the pace and inflicting greater damage to her opponent. After 15 minutes elapsed, all three judges awarded Northcutt her first career victory.

The MMA main event of the card featured a lightweight clash between One veterans Amir Khan and Ev Ting. After three rounds of back-and-forth action, Khan (12-6) defeated his opponent via split decision. Khan persuaded two of the three judges likely thanks to his clinical striking techniques that allowed him to inflict a few cuts on the face of his opponent. The Evolve MMA representative snapped a three-fight skid in front of a partisan crowd, but fans did not appear to enjoy their local fighter's performance as they loudly whistled during his post-fight interview.

In a featherweight contest, U.S. fighter Troy Worthen (6-0) maintained his unbeaten record after he crushed Chen Lei at 4:56 in the second period. Earlier, Indian fighter Rahul K. Raju (6-4) submitted Furqan Cheema via rear-naked choke at 3:00 in the second round; Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke (11-5) stopped Muhammad Imran by TKO at 1:21 of the final round. In the first MMA bout of the main card, Alex Silva (9-4) tapped Xuewen Peng with an armbar at 4:45 into Round 2.
