McLaren stifles Striegl in huge One upset

McLaren stifles Striegl in huge One upset

By Ivan Saldajeno

PASAY—As an old saying goes, "It's not yet over until the fat lady sings."

Reece McLaren averted a second round blunder and forced Mark Striegl to a tap out in a big shocker in the co-main event of One: Spirit of Champions at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday night.

The Australian fighter, a late replacement, nearly got knocked out by the Filipino foe in Round 2 but got second wind in the third, dominating him in the ground game and getting a rear-naked choke for the submission.

The loss was a back-breaker for Striegl, who appeared to be leading after two rounds.

Striegl, who is highly touted for a championship fight, lost for the second time in his stellar career, his first since his only world title shot against Kim Jang-Yong at PXC.
