RE­SULT: Phoe Thaw wins by TKO

The fi­nale to the lo­cal tour­na­ment was a brief but elec­tric bout: Phoe Thaw opened with a strong spin­ning kick. Saw Yan Paing an­swered with a kick of his own, but his lack of ground game quickly be­came ap­par­ent when Phoe Thaw caught him in a head lock and threw him to the mat. After a brief es­cape, Phoe Thaw wres­tled Saw Yan Paing back to ground and rained down vi­cious el­bows to the face. The ref­eree ended his ground and pound just over 90 sec­onds into the first round, award­ing Phoe Thaw his fourth-straight vic­tory and the in­au­gu­ral Myan­mar MMA feath­er­weight tro­phy.
