Thanh Le made quick work of Ilya Freymanov to capture the interim ONE featherweight world championship on Friday night.

Coming out for the highly anticipated ONE Fight Night 15 main event, Freymanov looked to put the pressure on early, but it was Le who utilized his heavy hands to overwhelm the Russian in the opening moments. As Le moved in with a flurry of strikes, Freymanov shot for a takedown.

In the process, Le managed to grab a hold of Freymanov’s leg and locked in a heel hook. Freymanov did everything possible to defend, but it was all in jest as Le had no intentions of letting Freymanov free.

Trapped with nowhere to go, Ilya Freymanov had no choice, but to tap out just past the one-minute mark of the first round.

Official Result: Thanh Le defeats Ilya Freymanov via submission (heel hook) at 1:02 of round one to capture the interim ONE featherweight world title.
