ONE Championship’s first event on Amazon Prime Video started off with a bang.
Kadestam would not need long to add to his highlight reel of finishes under the ONE Championship banner.
A few moments after Lapicus secured a takedown and landed strikes on the mat, Kadestam got back to his feet and began looking for the opening to land something significant. At the 57-second mark, Kadestam found it when he landed a beautiful right uppercut that put Lapicus out cold.
Check out video of the finish below (via Twitter):
Kadestam makes in two first-round finishes in a row following a stoppage win over Valmir da Silva in February. The 10-fight veteran of ONE Championship improves to 6-4 with the promotion, with each of his wins coming by finish.
Lapicus is now winless in his last three outings, losing in the first round against Christian Lee, a no contest against Eddie Alvarez, and tonight’s result against Kadestam. Prior to his recent skid, Lapicus was undefeated in the first 13 fights of his pro career.
