MANILA--Jackie Buntan added Diandra Martin to her growing list of victims after the former scored a huge knockout at ONE on Prime Video 10 on Saturday (Philippine Time) at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.

The Filipino-American, who was superb all match long, connected on a right hook that sent the Australian down the floor.

Although Martin made the 10-count, she was already bloodied inside her nose, and referee Justin Brown had seen enough and called it a technical knockout for Buntan at the 2:34 mark of Round 1.

Buntan has now won back-to-back fights after her first pro loss against Smilla Sunden and is now at 5-1 overall, while Martin dropped to 1-2 as a ONE Championship fighter.

In an interview with commentator Mitch Chilson, while Buntan is aware that she is in line for a rematch against Sunden for the ONE strawweight muay thai title, she said that she wants a shot at the vacant ONE strawweight kickboxing title.
