KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s Jihin 'Shadow Cat' Radzuan scored her fastest ONE Championship win in emphatic fashion against Filipina warrior Jomary 'The Zamboanginian Fighter' Torres at ONE: MASTERS OF DESTINY on Friday, 12 July.
The 20-year-old Wushu World Champion needed only 3:07 of the opening stanza to seal her fifth career victory by triangle choke - much to the excitement of the adoring hometown fans, who cheered the atomweight starlet throughout the contest.
“I’m quite happy with the win,” the Ultimate MMA Academy standout revealed. “We’ve been drilling a lot on these armbars, triangles, working from the back, guillotine choke, and other moves.”
“One of the techniques we were drilling throughout the camp was that exact submission, so it feels like we’ve just struck a jackpot.”
Jihin dominated the match as soon as it got underway, taking her challenger to the canvas slightly in just over a minute of the opening bell.
“Her slams were hard, but the theory of surviving these slams is to not get your head hit first,” Jihin explained. “It’s easy, but a lot of athletes forget to do this when they’re caught in a similar situation. I just kept my body curved like the letter C. So when she slammed me down, I didn’t hurt a bit.”
As Torres continued to seek an opening, little did she realize that “Shadow Cat” was versatile on the ground. Jihin switched positions, throwing her legs up and cranking up a tight triangle choke – which proved to be the decider in this hotly contested atomweight bout.
“Credit goes out to her,” Jihin said. “I was trying to over-extend the armbar, but she was very strong, and after a while, I felt as though the armbar was getting loose too. That was when I decided to secure the triangle choke.”
“I saw her lips turning blue, and I’ve never seen that before. But I knew that meant I was getting closer to the win,” Jihin said. “That happened 20 seconds before she tapped.”
