Deemed as one of the best bouts of 2016, Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen took on China’s most promising featherweight, the 21-year-old Li Kai Wen. From the get-go, the athletes blasted each other with powerful strikes, repeatedly landing heavy handed punches and kicks. Within moments, Nguyen was able to take Li’s back and execute a thrilling first-round technical knockout.

That was Nguyen’s second consecutive win. He has since added three more, including capturing the ONE featherweight title from Marat Gafurov in his most recent bout.
