ONE Fight Night 10 results: Roberto Soldic knocked out by underdog Zebaztian Kadestam
The ONE Championship woes continue for Roberto Soldic.
Part of the ONE Fight Night 10 main card, Soldic (20-4) was finished by Zebaztian Kadestam (15-7) with a full-fledged striking onslaught at 0:45 of Round 2.
After a punch-heavy opening round between the two powerful strikers, Soldic was dropped by a right hand that marked the beginning of the end. Soldic made a valiant effort to survive, but as he picked himself up off the canvas, another heavy right hand landed.
A follow-up left hand crumpled Soldic again before a big knee drilled him right between the eyes (as the ONE Championship ruleset was in full effect). The bout was swiftly waived off mid-knee.
