ONE: Jeremy Miado bows to Mansur Malachiev

Jeremy Miado’s hopes of re-entering the strawweight Top Five and potentially vying for the division’s world title were derailed by Russian newcomer Mansur Malachiev.

The 30-year-old Albay native succumbed to a first-round submission defeat at the hands of the undefeated strawweight standout from Dagestan, Russia, on the undercard of ONE Fight Night 11. The event took place at the iconic Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, on Saturday.

Malachiev’s overwhelming pressure, combined with his highly-touted wrestling pedigree, kept Holzken guessing right from the opening bell. This prevented the Filipino knockout artist from gaining any momentum.

Within the first minute of the opening salvo, Malachiev executed a beautiful takedown, taking the fight to the ground where he possessed a clear advantage.

A skilled grappler and submission specialist, Malachiev skillfully maneuvered into a dominant position. Despite Miado’s best efforts to defend and return to his feet, the former two-division Eagle FC champion’s technique was too much to handle.

Maintaining composure and calculated control, Malachiev locked in a tight D’arce choke, leaving Miado with limited options to escape.

Miado found himself trapped in the vice-like grip of Malachiev’s submission hold. With no escape route in sight, “The Jaguar” reluctantly tapped, signaling the end of the contest with 29 seconds remaining in the period and securing the victory for Malachiev.

The disappointing setback snapped Miado’s impressive four-fight winning streak, downgrading his professional record to 12-5.

Meanwhile, Malachiev improved to 11-0 and claimed his sixth career win by way of submission.
