Former GLORY lightweight champion Marat Grigorian will remember his ONE Championship debut for the rest of his life, for sure.
One of the best kickboxers in the world got pushed to his limit in his fight against Russia’s Ivan Kondrotev at ONE: Big Bang’s main card.
The Belgian-Armenian fighter got the W in the end, but he had to work pretty hard for it. Tatneft Cup veteran Kondratev wasn’t expected to give Marat much of a fight, but he did.

Grigorian got knocked down at the end of the opening round with a beautiful right hook. Grigorian managed to get back on his feet before returning the favor in the next round, delivering a brutal left hook to the body.

It was Marat’s first win in 2020 since he hasn’t fought at all this year due to the financial problems GLORY had due to the coronavirus pandemic that stopped elite sports all around the world.
