The second instalment of One Pride Fight Night 21 showcased the new atomweight tournament starters and not a single fight went the distance. Grappling was the name of the game for part two’s five fights.

Ade Permana may be an atomweight, but he grapples like he’s made of iron. He took Imam Yarha down with power, mashed his face and smothered him until mercy came in the second by a rear naked choke. Yarha was game to the end, but he had to tap.

Nandhitya Rumambi showed a lot of aggression standing and on the ground against Dedi Kurniawan. Rumambi delivered tons of elbows to his grounded opponent in the first round, but Kurniawan survived. In the second, Rumambi knew his opponent had no heart left, and it didn’t take much for him to put him on the ground and triangle him.

Billy Pasulatan delivered a kimura from back mount to Syamsul Huda for the submission win. Pasulatan got control of the takedown, was patient in maintaining his position on top, and took the opportunity to crank the limb when he knew it was time.

Anwar Hidayat just would not stay down when Nendi Ramdani put him there. Hidayat threw his legs up, hooked, pulled, and swept his way to the top through two rounds. It paid off, as he was able to get the tap at the very last second of round two.
