ONE Championship 75 may have just played host to the 2018 Fight Of The Year.

Two-division champion Aung La N Sang defended his middleweight crown against Ken Hasegawa in the main event. Veteran play-by-play commentator Michael Schiavello couldn’t believe what he was seeing, saying the following (via MMA Junkie):

“Words can’t describe!” Schiavello said. “Suffice to say, Aung La N Sang vs. Ken Hasegawa was the greatest match we’ve ever seen!”

Don’t believe the hype? Just check out the side-by-side photos of Sand and Hasegawa’s faces after going to war:

Both men showed a tremendous amount of heart in the fight, but in the end Sang retained his title with a fifth round knockout after connecting on an uppercut. He also has to worry about defending the welterweight title in the near future, after successfully defending the promotion’s 185-pound strap against Hasegawa.
