29 January 2015 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: ONE Championship electrified the iconic Stadium Negara with another evening of world-class mixed martial arts action. In the Malaysia Warrior Bout main event, an exhausted Ev Ting pulled out a hard fought victory over Eric “The Natural” Kelly of the Philippines, winning by a
submission in round three. Ting dominated the striking exchanges throughout the bout, blasting Kelly with various combinations. Kelly spent most of his time defending against Ting’s aggression, biding his time and pacing himself for a distance finish. In the third, Ting latched on a standing Guillotine that transitioned into a mounted Guillotine, leaving Kelly no choice but to tap out.
“Marat Gafurov I’m coming for you, where is that belt at?” said Ting, looking for a shot at the ONE Featherweight World Championship.
“With the new weight cut policy I wanna fight as much as I can and fight full time to feed my family. I want to fight Marat Gafurov. The fight was harder than I expected. I didn’t know he could take so much hits. I respect Kelly as a fighter and it was a great fight,” Ting added.
