Asia’s top MMA promotion has returned for ONE FC 7: Return of Warriors in the Putra Indoor Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The prelims aired on Livesport.tv for free and saw a pair of impressive victories from Jake Butler and Gianni Subba.
In a clash of Malaysian featherweights, Gianni Subba hustled Saiful Merican in the grappling department. While the muay Thai specialist had his moments of brilliance on the feet, Subba was too complete of a mixed martial artist for him, taking him down at will and pounding on him. The end came at 4:08 of the middle period, where the Phuket Top Team product locked in an armbar and forced “The Vampire” to tap.
Jake Butler made his promotional debut in the light heavyweight division, dismantling Antoni Romulo in the first round. The American held a massive size and strength advantage over his opponent and he used it well. Butler took the fight to the ground, where it was elementary after the Indonesian’s guard was passed. Butler rained down punishment from mount, forcing the stop at 2:46 of the opening round.
