Three contestants received US$50,000 performance incentives for their memorable finishes at ONE 164: Pacio vs. Brooks on December 3rd.
For their exciting stoppage victories at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, Filipino upstart Jeremy Pacatiw, Team Lakay wonder Jhanlo Mark Sangiao, and Russian striker “Samingpri” Tagir Khalilov each received bonuses from ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong.
Pacatiw’s spectacular second-round submission of Myanmar athlete Tial Thang brought the Manila crowd to its feet.
After an intense first round of action, “The Juggernaut” caught onto a tight triangle choke early in the second round to secure his first victory in the ONE Championship and a well-earned bonus.
Sangiao made a strong impression in the lead-off fight, defeating Anacleto Lauron convincingly.
The 20-year-old rising star won the ground battle and then finished off his opponent with a rear-naked choke to earn a cool $50,000 and move up to 5-0 in professional MMA.
The first US$50,000 bonus of the card was given to Khalilov for his outstanding performance against promotional newcomer Chorfah Tor.Sangtiennoi.
A wonderfully timed uppercut that knocked the Thai fighter to the ground in the opening round of their Muay Thai competition gave the Russian his first victory inside the Circle.
