PASAY--Rockie Bactol failed to hold on as he fell prey to Akihiro Fujisawa at One: Conquest of Champions at the Mall of Asia Arena on Friday night.
In a battle between former competitors of the reality show One Warrior Series, Bactol came just close to surviving Fujisawa's ground game and bring the fight to the scorecards.
However, Fujisawa found an opening to strike his ground-and-pound game on Bactol, forcing Referee Olivier Coste to end the match with only 18 seconds remaining.
Bactol actually had a good start, but Fujusawa's ground game proved to be brilliant the rest of Round 1, even coming close to a leg submission.
Fujisawa's dominance continued in Round 2 before he went for the finish late in Round 3.
