ONE Featherweight Champion, Marat Gafurov, Wins BJJ Competition In Phuket, Thailand

The ONE FC Featherweight Champion Marat Gafurov, Wins BJJ Competition In Phuket, Thailand.

Marat Gafurov is a stone cold killer in the ONE Championship’s featherweight division, and it seems the same in any other competition he enters.

This past Friday, Marat was attending the Carlson Gracie BJJ competition at Phuket Top Team, in support of his Thai home gym AKA Thailand, and found himself in competition yet again. Though he was just spectating with the AKAT crew, when it came time for the Brown Belt division, they needed another entrant. Without hesitation, Marat grabbed a Gi and a belt and jumped in, against much larger opponents, and completely dominated.

Fighters are a different breed and Marat showed that with this perfect example how competitive a champions blood is.

Good job, Marat!
