|Jeremy Pacatiw introduced himself to ONE Championship in style.|
MANILA--Jeremy Pacatiw made a triumphant to ONE Championship on Friday night, beating Chinese opponent Chen Rui at ONE: Battleground at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Pacatiw showed his might right at the opening round, tagging Chen with huge strikes and even coming close to a rear naked choke submission.
Chen somehow got his groove going early into Round 2 with some strikes of his own, but Pacatiw once again showed his well rounded game by relegating Chen anew to the defensive on the ground to prevent himself from two submission attempts.
Chen went for a last minute charge in the final round, surprising Pacatiw with solid strikes of his own, but it was a bit too late for Chen as Pacatiw walked away with the unanimous decision win.
Pacatiw, who first made waves internationally at Brave Combat Federation, moved up to 11-4, while Chen fell to 9-3.
