Former ONE Championship welterweight title challenger Luis Santos got off to a terribly slow start but ultimately turned it on late – and then survived his opponent’s late rally – to score a unanimous-decision win in today’s ONE Championship 46 main event. The event, which streamed as an online pay-per-view in North America, took place at Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia. Santos (63-9-1) overcame Igor Svirid ’s (10-3) initial unwillingness to engage but used a key third-round takedown – and some much-needed defense in the final minute of the fight – to get the win. The first round was a largely action-free affair, with Svirid circling away from Santos, who was left clapping and taunting to try to get his opponent to engage. The ref then pulled out a yellow card (which results in a 10-percent pay deduction), but he inexplicably issued it to both fighters, which brought about a complaint from Santos, who said he was trying to press the action. The lack of action continued in the second round – even as the ref pleaded for some – from both fighters
