It was a short night for Pinoy fighter Rodian Menchavez at ONE Championship: Pinnacle of Power, Saturday evening at the Studio City Events Center in Macau.
Taking on dangerous Chinese fighter Li Kai Wen, Menchavez, who was making his ONE debut, was on the wrong end of a vicious knockout, ending their bout in just ten seconds.
In the opening sequence of the bout, Menchavez and Li engaged in a stand-up trade that saw Li land a counter overhand right, knocking Menchavez out cold.
The feat ended up being the fastest featherweight knockout in ONE Championship history.
After the bout, Li called out reigning ONE Championship Featherweight king Martin Nguyen.
"He's a good champion, I'm a good challenger. Let's do it. Give me the fight," Li said.
Menchavez drops to 5-2 in his MMA career, while Li improves to 8-4.
