ONE Championship 69 results and highlights: Reece McLaren closes out submission-heavy card

Friday’s “ONE Championship 69: Visions of Victory” event featured no knockouts, but it had a bevy of submission finishes.

In the main event, which took place at Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Reece McLaren (11-5) solidified himself as the top ONE Championship flyweight contender. “Lightning” put his grappling on display against Gianni Subba (9-3), who was stopped inside the distance for the first time when he succumbed to a second-round arm-triangle choke.

McLaren’s victory, which punched his ticket to a title shot against 125-pound champ Adriano Moraes, capped off a 10-fight card that had six fights end with someone tapping out or left unconscious on the mat.

Agilan Thani (8-1) emerged on top from the middleweight co-headliner after the 22-year-old locked up a triangle choke in the second round of his bout against an overmatched Amitesh Chaubey (5-5).

Other key winners included Christian Lee (9-1), who finished Kazunori Yokota (26-8-3) with a guillotine choke late in the second round of their featherweight encounter, as well as grappling standout Michelle Nicolini (5-1), who despite being 36, continued to blossom in her MMA career with a quick submission of Kiamrian Abbasov (11-3).
