Fighting out of Johor Bahru, Malaysia, Jihin “Shadowcat” Radzuan, 19, has just earned her third victory as a professional mixed martial artist. It is also her second win in ONE Championship.

The only female match among the 11 bouts at “ONE: Pursuit of Power” was a match in the women’s atomweight division. It was between two of the finest female athletes of ONE Championship, namely Jihin “Shadowcat” Radzuan, 19, of Johor Bahru, Malaysia and Priscilla “Thathi” Hertati Lumban Gaol, 30, of Jakarta, Indonesia.

Taking place at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, “ONE: Pursuit of Power” featured eight MMA matches and three striking bouts in ONE Super Series. The atomweight bout between Gaol and Radzuan was the third match of the evening.

After three five-minute rounds, the women’s atomweight bout between Gaol and Radzuan was left in the hands of the judges. In the end, referee Kemp Cheng raised the Malaysian contender’s hand as the winner via unanimous decision.

Currently reigning as the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion is Angela “Unstoppable” Lee, 21, of Singapore. Neither Gaol nor Radzuan has faced Lee.

“ONE: Pursuit of Power” marked Gaol’s sixth bout in ONE Championship. She currently has 3 wins and 2 losses in the promotion, which is also her professional MMA record.

On the other hand, Radzuan has 2 wins and 0 loss. She earned 1 of the 2 wins when she made her successful ONE Championship debut at “ONE: Visions of Victory,” the first event of the promotion to take place in Malaysia in 2018 followed by “ONE: Pursuit of Power” as the second.

Gaol was the only Indonesian contender on the “ONE: Pursuit of Power” card. On the other hand, Radzuan had two fellow Malaysian fighters on the card, namely Agilan “Alligator” Thani, 22, and Keanu Subba, 24.
