    On this card alone, the co-main event is between the 2nd-ranked SW in the world (champion Saruta) and the 3rd-ranked SW in Pacio. Saruta might be the physically-strongest guy in the entire division and Pacio is a finisher with 14 of his 16 wins coming by submission or KO (very impressive for the lower divisions).

    You can watch any of their Youtube fights and you'll see they're extremely high-level and legit world-class fighters. For quick and exciting moments, though, here's Saruta getting a one-punch KO over a top-20 FLW in 2012 I think:



    And here's a green Pacio getting a submission over a current top-15 SW in a fun back-and-forth quick grappling battle:



    Interestingly, Saruta's more of the grappler and Pacio's more of the striker.

    If you like entertaining fights, the Kelly brothers Edward and Eric are both fighters to look out for. Even when they lose the fights are great, and Eric Kelly's heart means he's never out of a fight while Edward's knockouts are pretty good.





    Xie Bin's a very tall BW prospect on a 6-fight winning streak in ONE, and his opponent has more KO power than anyone he's faced in his career.



    If you want a ONE fighter in general, Yoshiki Nakahara's a bandwagon you'll wanna jump on before everyone else gets on it. He's on an 8-fight winning streak and 9-1 over his last 10, having avenged the loss to Pancrase ranker Kyosuke Yokoyama on his current stretch. He's beaten a lotta strong guys on the Japanese circuit, too. He's still green, but he's got more potential than any FW that's come out of Pancrase in a long time.

    He’s up there in age, but really hoping Jadambaa pulls through. It’d do a lot of good for the continued growth of the sport in his country.

    I would like too see more spinning back fists and elbows from Pacio later.
    I believe Eric Kelly put Mitch Chilson(yeah that One FC commentator) to sleep on the very first One FC event. Mitch was talking about this on one of the One events he was commentating in on.

    Gonzales put a DJ move on Fujisawa damn!

    Too bad John Wayne Parr is stuck with Bellator KB. He would be the perfect signing for ONE.

    I still remember his days on the Contender Asia.

    He almost got him with a few elbows at the end there....

    Other than that Saemapetch dominated, very very good counterstriking.

    Those elbows could have changed the game, but why did Topic only unleashed it on the last seconds of the last round is a head scratcher.

    Damn Eric should contemplate retirement. Hope his brother Edward doesn't go to sleep too later.

    Partially because Saemapetch let his guard down. It's a thai habit. In thailand, they take the 1st round off, fight 3 rounds and if there is a clear winner, they take the round off. Partially because it's an unspoken rule because you don't want to KO and hurt anyone and prevent them from fighting again in the week or so.

    I think he also took a massive KO on his last fight too. Time to hang up the gloves.
