Jomary Torres made quite the ONE Championship debut, forcing previously unbeaten Rika Ishige to tap out.
While all the attention leading up to the fight was about Thailand's Rika Ishige, Filipina fighter Jomary Torres made sure that she would be the star after fight night.
Torres announced her ONE Championship arrival by choking out the previously unbeaten Ishige via rear naked choke at the 1:58 mark of the second round of their atomweight contest, Saturday evening at the CotaiArena in Macau.
Ishige controlled the first round, taking Torres down and nearly catching the Pinay with a slick armbar.
In the second round, Torres caught an Ishige kick and began teeing off on the Thai-Japanese star.
The unbeaten Pinay then knocked Ishige down before dropping some ground-and-pound bombs and then eventually sinking in a rear naked choke, forcing the tap.
Torres improves to 2-0 in her career while making an immediate impact in her ONE debut.
Ishige suffers the first loss of her young career.
