ONE Fighting Championship's 16th event happened in Singapore, and headlining the card is the promotional debut for former Bellator champion Ben Askren taking on a Sambo-based prospect in Bakhtiyar Abbasov. Askren was surprisingly taken down by Abbasov within seconds, but he played into the Olympic wrestler's hands, as he quickly got reversed and submitted with an arm-triangle choke (GIF via Zombie Prophet).
Shortly after the win, he called out ONE FC champ Nobutatsu Suzuki, saying "He can put my belt in the middle of the cage, or he can do it the hard way!"
Other notable results include Major Overall knocking out Bruno Pucci with a soccer kick (GIF from ZP), and former Legend FC champion Jadamba Narantungalag returning to action and edging out former ONE FC champ Honorio Banario in a back and forth affair.
