Gregor Gracie, 24, had his work cut out for him in notching his sixth win in seven MMA fights. Gregor saw action this Saturday in Singapore at ONE FC, a promotion holding its maiden event with the purpose of becoming Asia’s premier MMA show. For now, at least, it is shoring up the market amidst the decline of the sport in the continent’s greatest superpower, Japan.

Facing South Korea’s Seok Mo Kim, the black belt had to go the full three rounds. Of Gregor’s six wins, this is the only one resulting in a decision – a unanimous one. The Gracie managed to pull off a submission in all five of his other victorious performances.

In another heavily anticipated matchup, Yoshiyuki Yoshida overcame former UFC fighter Phil Baroni. Now Roberto Gordo black belts Leandro Brodinho and Zorobabel Moreira, our GMA representatives in Singapore, also defeated their respective opponents.

Check out the complete results:

Leandro Issa defeated Soo Chul Kim via unanimous decision;
