Den kinesiske flugviktaren Yang Jian Bing dog under fredagen, efter att ha fått komplikationer på grund av hård bantning. Bing deltog under torsdagen i invägningarna för sin kommande match mot Geje Eustaquio under ONE FC 35 och matchen blev sedan struken efter att Bing snabbt blev sämre.
Bing visade sig då vara extremt uttorkad och fördes till sjukhus.
Det här berättade ONE Championship i ett meddelande:
