Yoshitaka Naito earned a split-decision nod to regain his ONE strawweight championship at ONE: Grit and Glory on Saturday in Jakarta, but it was Leandro Ataides that stole the show.
Naito lost the belt to Alex Silva at ONE: Warriors of the World in December. It was the first, and thus far only, blemish on his record. But he avenged the loss and returned the belt to his waist by stifling Silva’s every move in their rematch.
While Stefer Rahardian scored an impressive rear-naked choke victory in the co-main event, Leandro Ataides delivered a diet of punishing punches to Vitaly Bigdash to steal the show and earn a shot at the ONE Championship middleweight title.
