One Fighting Championship - Return of the Warriors

Apology for going missing for 2 weeks. Been super busy with work and personal stuff. Barely had enough sleep. =__=

It was my first time watching live Mixed Martial Arts Tournament.

VIP Entrance ;)

The One FC Cage

Experience of watching Mixed Martial Art Tournament for the first time: Awesome! Never knew it would be so 'gan jeong' (exciting). And yes, it's so brutal at the same time. Especially the one between Peter Davis and Leo Krishna. Krishna's lips actually was torn (that's what I saw from the screen) and Davis's leg has a deep cut as well. The doctor has to call a stop to the fight because of the injury. Throughout the fights, I've hold my breath a lot as the fighters punched their way / used their best strategy to victory.

Anyway, below are the fights on that night and the winners. :) (The pictures are taken from One FC Return of Warriors photo gallery)
