Jhanlo “The Machine” Sangiao absorbed the first blemish to his erstwhile immaculate record, falling to Enkh-Orgil Baatarkhuu at ONE Fight Night 13: Allazov vs. Grigorian on Aug. 5 at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.
The 21-year-old prodigy got tagged with a brutal right elbow to start the second round before the Mongolian bantamweight methodically went to work with his right arm before forcing the tap at the 2:53 mark.
It was a tough finish for Sangiao who immediately imposed his presence with his array of strikes, bloodying Baatarkhuu’s right eye at the fight’s onset.
Yet the veteran Baatarkhuu was just relentless, keeping up on the stand up and repeatedly attempted to secure the submission targeting Sangiao’s right arm before finally securing the submission victory in round two.
Baatarkhuu, though, still gave credit where credit is due and praised Sangiao’s ferocity, saying “I wish him the best. He’s a promising young athlete.”
Nonetheless, Sangiao slipped to 6-1 in his young MMA career as he looks to learn from this first setback.
He also becomes the second Team Lakay fighter to fall to Baatarkhuu after stablemate Adonis Sevilleno suffered a unanimous decision loss at ONE Fight Night 13 last April.
