Olsim, Banguingui scores contrasting wins in OWS 6

JERRY Olsim and Dave Banguingui pulled of contrasting wins in ONE Warrior Series (OWS) 6 inching their way closer to a possible contract with One Championship.

Olsim, the undefeated Team Lakay featherweight, edged Myeong Gu Kim via unanimous decision to stay unscathed after six bouts keeping his hope of signing a six digit contract with Asia's largest mixed martial arts promotion.

"It was good win for Jerry. He remained focused all throughout the fight and we hope he gets to sign up by ONE," said coach Mark Sangiao.

It will be Olsim's third decision win out of his four victories in OWS.

Olsim immediately showcased his striking prowess against a taller Kim right at the start of the opening bell, and nearly submitted his Korean opponent.

Kim managed to stay escape and tried to choke Olsim in the exchange but the Team Lakay warrior was able to escape as both fighters scramble towards the end of the round.

In the second round, Olsim started landing big shots after big shots as Kim tried to bring the fight to the ground but the 24-year-old showcased his ground defense as both fighters remain in the clinch for minutes.

In the third round, Olsim starts to dominate his opponent with his superb striking as Kim continue to bring the fight to the mat but to no avail.

Fight Corps MMA's Banguingui, meanwhile, earned his first win on OWS with a second round knockout of Susovan Ghosh.

It was an impressive debut for Banguigui as he displayed his crisp striking against Ghosh right at the start of the opening round, but the Indian debutante caught the Fight Corps enlists in his back almost securing a rear naked choke.

Banguigiu later on escaped and started to unleash knees to the face and nearly finished Ghosh then opened the second round with a flurry of leg kicks but the Indian was able to send his opponent to the ground as he pursued for a finish.

While on the ground, Banguigui was relentless in unleashing knees and punch to the head. With both fighters standing up, and Ghosh still dazed, Banguigui let out a short straight that sent the Indian to floor ending the bout.
