The One FC promotion held its fourth event this Saturday, June 23, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and there was no lack of excitement or Jiu-Jitsu. The black belt Renato Babalu was quick on the trigger and needed just 31 seconds to take out Tatsuya Mizuno via armbar in the evening’s main event.

A black belt from the family with the most tradition in the martial arts world, Gregor Gracie couldn’t get his ground game working for him and ended up dropping a unanimous decision to local fighter Adam Shahir Kayoom.

Of the other Brazilians in the event, Zorobabel Moreira, a Roberto Gordo black belt, knocked out former UFC star Roger Huerta in the second round, while Leandro Brodinho took a unanimous decision over Masakazu Imanari. Now Marcos Escobar tapped out Rodrigo Praxedes via choke in the third round. Check out the complete results:
