Three Filipinos lose at ONE FC: Age of Champions
Cary Bullos, Ramon Gonzalez, and April Osenio all fail to notch a win at the ONE FC: Age of Champions


MANILA, Philippines – Three Filipino fighters failed to hoist the Philippine flag aloft as they bowed down to their respective foreign opposition on the undercard of ONE FC: Age of Champions on Friday night, March 13 at the 16,000-seater Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Cary Bullos (7-3), a 31-year-old mixed martial artist from Cebu who made a name for himself in Universal Reality Combat Championship, yielded to Malaysian standout Ev Ting (9-2) via second-round submission.

After a back-and-forth action in the first round, where the two competitors exchanged vicious strikes, Ting turned the bout in his favor in round two as he forced Bullos to wave the white flag with a standing guillotine choke at the 1:05 mark.

Meanwhile, Ramon Gonzalez (1-1) lost to Cambodian combatant Chan Rothana (3-1) by way of first-round stoppage.

Rothana overwhelmed Gonzalez with his grappling pedigree, attempting for different submission holds from omoplata to armbar before gaining a full mount position to hammer short punches and elbows to compel referee Olivier Coste to halt the action at 4:48 of round one.

On the other hand, Team Lakay’s April Osenio (0-1) was submitted by Singaporean atomweight Kirstie Gannaway (2-0) with a rear-naked choke in the second round.

Osenio was the late replacement of Filipina pugilist Jujeath Nagaowa, who decided to postpone his mixed martial arts career to return to boxing.

ONE Fighting Championship’s next stop is on April 24 at the 20,000-seater SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila. The event is headlined by a welterweight championship clash between current titleholder Ben Askren and Luis Santos. –
