Gustavo Balart Wins Big at ONE: Battleground Against Ryuto ‘Dragon Boy’ Sawada!
Olympic Greco Roman wrestler and Pan American gold medallist Gustavo ‘El Gladiador’ Balart recorded a huge win at ONE Championship’s ‘Battleground’ event, besting top-ranked Japenese competitor Ryuto ‘Dragon Boy’ Sawada across all three scorecards.
Balart, who has waged wars in the ONE cage against the likes of Tatsumitsu Wada and Chan Rothana, came in determined to make his mark in the ONE Championship Strawweight division – and did JUST THAT!
A blur of creative and innovative strikes set up Balart’s patented wrestling offence, while the Cuban mixed in devastating knees on the ground to further incapacitate Sawada.
Balart now has his eyes set on 2022, as he looks to make a run for ONE Championship gold!
