Ilya Freymanov defeated Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg in the main event of ONE Fight Night 11.


Ilya Freymanov beat Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg decisively at ONE Fight Night 11, bringing his record to two first-round finishes in as many appearances on the ONE Championship stage. The most recent bout took place at ONE Fight Night 11. On Friday, June 9, in the illustrious Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, he was up against a determined Mongolian boxer. He had to dig deep and come back from a losing position in order to prevail over his opponent.

In this featherweight MMA battle, the first blood was drawn by Zoltsetseg’s fists as he applied pressure to the No. 3-ranked contender by combining one-twos and hook-crosses in a series of strikes. Ilya Freymanov was hurt shortly thereafter by a four-punch combination that culminated with a penetrating left jab.

The Zorky MMA representative, realizing that the fight was drawing to a close, continued to throw punches in the hopes of earning a quick victory and a trip back to Zorky MMA headquarters. At the same time, the Russian slugger, who was 27 years old at the time, was having none of his opponent’s onslaught.

The young contender from Kuznya Fight Club was able to bring the fight back to the feet and went right down the center against the powerful punching of the 26-year-old opponent. He used push kicks as a cover and then followed up with blows of his own.

Ilya Freymanov made the right choice when he decided to do so since he was able to catch the Mongolian with a toxic knee, which caused the plot to be thwarted. After biting down on his mouthguard, the lanky Russian immediately followed his opponent to the mat and launched a ruthless ground-and-pound assault using elbows.

At the end of the beating, it was only natural for Zoltsetseg to try to find a way out of the situation. He shelled up and went on all fours in an attempt to find a way out of the situation, but all it did was give the Russian the opportunity to sink in a rear-naked choke on him.

At 2 minutes and 18 seconds into the opening round, the Mongolian immediately tapped down, giving the third-ranked featherweight contender his first victory via submission.

As a result of the Russian athlete’s two impressive finishes on the international stage of ONE, including a debut knockout victory over Martin Nguyen, the prospect of competing for a world title could very well be on the horizon.

Ilya Freymanov was successful in defeating Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg by way of a submission (a rear-naked choke) at 2 minutes and 18 seconds into the first round.
