MANILA, Philippines — Robin Catalan scored a stunning victory over Cuban Gustavo Balart in ONE: Masters of Fate in the Mall of Asia Arena Friday.

Catalan's striking proved more effective than Balart's wrestling with the Filipino defending well on the ground.

Despite Balart getting a takedown in the opening round, Catalan was able to recover and get back on his feet.

In the second round, Catalan landed a kick to the head with his right foot that sent Balart to dreamland.

Catalan improves his record to 10-6.

His older brother Rene will face Joshua Pacio in the main event for the ONE Strawweight World Championship.
