Undefeated in his professional MMA career, ONE middleweight champion Vitaly Bigdash is currently 9-0. He rose to champion of the ONE middleweight division on October 9, 2015 at ONE: Tigers of Asia.
Bigdash defeated former middleweight champion Igor Svirid at the event. The fight only made it to the second round, with Bigdash achieving a TKO over the former champion.
Sivirid seemed determined to get the fight to the ground, as Bigdash offered a flurry of blows during the first half of the initial round. The two stayed on the feet for the first two minutes, as they traded powerful strikes to the cheers and screams of the crowd. Ending the round with some viscous ground and pound, Bigdash nearly finished the fight before the bell struck.
Moments into the second round, Bigdash offered a huge knee and right straight to end the bout by TKO.
Bigdash has defended his title once since this event, winning by unanimous decision against Aung La N Sang at ONE: Quest for Power.
