Indian Mixed Martial Arts fighter Arjan Bhullar crowned the ONE Championship Heavyweight world title yesterday night after beating former titleholder Brandon Vera of the Philippines via Technical Knockout (TKO) at round two of the main event fight named ONE: DANGAL at Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Brandon Vera relied on stand fight while Arjan Bhullar used a mixed fight style of ground and stand.
Round one just finished with equal play as both fighters took too much time to reach their targets.
But the round two saw more energetic efforts of the Indian fighter Arjan Bhullar.
Just before the end of round two, Arjan Bhullar landed some strong punches on Brandon Vera, and that caused Vera to fall onto the ground and lost with a technical knockout.
After the win, Bhullar has expressed his overwhelmed feeling upon the special fight.
“India, we got one now,” Bhullar said. “Your first world champion. Let’s go.”
“We were going to box him up, get in and out range, wrestle him, pressure him, break him. That was the game plan,” he continued. “I knew I was going to hurt him. My coaches knew it. I’m well trained, guys. I’ve been with the best since day one.”
“I have reached the pinnacle of this sport,” Bhullar said. “Now, I wanna attack the pro-wrestling industry. AWE, WWE, I’m coming for you guys next. Consider this a warning”, the Indian fighter added.
Next, the co-main event featured a Muay Thai fight between Tawanchai PK Saenchai and Sean Clancy. Saenchai delivered a super head kick knockout in the third round. —GNLM
