Ev “ET” Ting’s diverse skillset and relentless energy make him one of the most fun to watch athletes in the Circle.
With 15 contests in The Home Of Martial Arts, he guarantees top-level skills and a mesmerizing performance on every occasion.
Many world-class athletes have succumbed to the Auckland-based martial artist, but we relive four classic performances from Ting ahead of his clash against Amir Khan at ONE: EDGE OF GREATNESS next Friday, 22 November.
An Unforgettable Debut
Ting has been making waves since his debut in 2014 against Yohan Mulia Legowo at ONE: ERA OF CHAMPIONS.
The opening round featured an aggressive Ting, who was determined to finish his opponent in highlight-reel fashion. His Indonesian counterpart, who was 7-2 at that point, had a 100 percent finishing ratio and was no pushover.
However, the Malaysian-Kiwi dynamo turned up the heat with his booming head kicks, which forced Legowo to rethink his strategy.
With less than a minute left on the clock, “ET” satisfied his appetite for a finish with a sequence of heavy punches that resulted in a technical knockout win at 4:35 of the opening stanza.a
Thunderous Head Kick
Following his victory over Legowo, Ting traded leather with Edward Kelly, who was riding on a five-bout winning streak, at ONE: ROAR OF TIGERS.
In the first round, Ting exhibited his well-rounded competence, managing to pull off a couple of textbook takedowns.
The momentum picked up in round two as both athletes threw heavy fists.
During one of those exchanges, Ting caught Kelly with a perfectly-timed head kick that floored his opponent at 4:28 of the second round.
Dismantling A Legend
Nobutatsu Suzuki met a very-determined Ting at ONE: QUEST FOR GREATNESS back in August 2017.
Both orthodox fighters were off to a flying start, displaying a full-blown striking standoff. Then, a quick right hand from the Auckland MMA standout lacerated Suzuki’s right eyebrow.
As Ting closed in with powerful strikes, he followed up with a double leg slam takedown.
Transitioning into a dominant half guard, he rained down strikes onto Suzuki, forcing the referee to stop the contest at 3:29 of the first round.
