The Doctor was dominant in each of the three rounds, and a flurry of combinations and clever strikes put distance between himself and his opponent.

Jo Nattawut awaits Petrosyan in the next round, with the pair facing off once again after their Heroes of Honor battle in 2018. Petrosyan defeated Nattawut by decision in the bout.

Nicolini defeated former sparring partner Lee, and the eight-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion controlled Unstoppable on the mat.

The 37-year-old displayed her intelligence as she kept her opponent on the floor, and despite Lee's efforts, she could not force her way back into the fight.

Earlier, Troy Worthen had maintained his unbeaten record with a second-round knockout of Chen Rui to extend his MMA record to 5-0.

The American, making his ONE Championship debut, was competing in his first fight for a year but he showed little evidence of ring rust as he put in a dominant showing.

Pretty Boy used his wrestling skills to take the fight to the mat, before pummelling his opponent:

As for the Ghost, it was his first defeat in MMA and his record now stands at 7-1.

Worthen's compatriot Janet Todd also enjoyed a victory in what was only her second professional kickboxing bout.

Despite being pitted against former atomweight kickboxing world champion Chuang Kai Ting, Todd's aggressive striking earned her the majority decision.
