Zebaztian Kadestam moved into the finals of the welterweight grand prix with a third round finish of Agilan Thani in the main event of ONE Championship: Pursuit of Power.
The event took place from the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and streamed live online in Norht America.
“Agilan is tough, he is really tough. I hurt my hand in the first round and I tried not to think about it. His wrestling was good and he is a tough kid,” Kadestam said. “In the third round, I went back to my hand and it was good, so I said let’s go. I’ve been training hard for a long time, and this was just me flowing. Thank you to the fans in Kuala Lumpur for showing the support.”
