Christian Lee fury too much for Filipino Batolbatol



17 year old Christian Lee of Evolve MMA is on a tear!

For the second straight ONE Championship event, the Singapore’s brightest prospect was able to stop another Filipino fighter in making Cagayan de Oro-native Rocky “The Outlaw” Batolbatol quit after a fury Friday evening at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 31 year old Filipino featherweight was able to find his range early on in connecting on right hooks. Leg kick attempts by the CDO-native kept distance but Lee was able to find his momentum after connecting on a body kick.

With three minutes to go in the fight, a huge combination by Lee connected that stunned The Outlaw. It was then followed by a huge knee to the head that flattened Batolbatol on his back. A huge soccer kick by Lee dizzied the Filipino causing the latter to verbally tap out at the 2:14 mark of the first round.

The win keeps Lee’s slate perfect at five wins while Batolbatol falls to 5-3.

Result: Christian Lee def. Rocky Batolbatol via a verbal tapout (Rd 1, 2:14)
