KUALA LUMPUR, July 13 — Malaysia Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Hayatun Najihin Radzuan recorded her second victory in the ONE cage and moved 3-0 in her career.
The 20-year-old dominated her Indonesian opponent Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol throughout the three-round fight and won via unanimous decision.
Priscilla was no match for the Johorean as her three-fight winning streak came to an end.
“I thought I would be affected by her side kicks, but after receiving the first two and not feeling any pain, I closed in on her.
“I’m happy with the win, but I hope I can finish my fights faster,” the 20-year-old said.
“Shadowcat” added that this is just the second chapter of her fighting career and will take one step at her time in pursuit of the belt.
“I’ll walk step by step up the ladder of the championship belt.”
Hayatun recorded about six successful takedowns and dominated her opponent on the ground throughout the 15-minute match.
She said she nearly broke down in tears after hearing the support she received from the Malaysian fans.
“I wanted to cry because I heard the crowd cheering, but I had to keep my focus.
“I won and what I could learn from this fight is to always be more positive and believe in yourself. If you can do this, you can.”
