Flyweight Prospect Kaito Oda Overpowers Ngoc Luong Tran at ONE Friday Fights 67


Kaito Oda looks like a potential problem for the rest of the ONE Championship flyweight division.

Repeated takedowns, torturous control and sustained ground-and-pound carried the 26-year-old Japanese prospect to a unanimous decision over the previously unbeaten Ngoc Luong Tran in their ONE Friday Fights 67 showcase on Friday at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangok, Thailand. All three ringside judges turned in scorecards for Oda (5-1, 2-0 ONE), who has rattled off four consecutive victories.

Tran (4-1, 0-1 ONE) found danger wherever he turned. Oda floored him with a clean one-two in the first round, powered into top position and piled up points with punches and hammerfists. When Tran escaped to his feet and pursued the clinch, he was greeted with short-range elbows and shoulder strikes. Oda flexed his superiority in the wrestling and grappling departments as time wore on. The Carpe Diem Fukuoka representative executed multiple takedowns, explored the Tran guard fearlessly and chewed time off the clock. Oda climbed to full mount in the third round, threatened with an arm-triangle choke and resumed his assault when the finish failed to materialize. By then, the outcome had long been decided.
