“Nguyen and Tomar went toe-to-toe for three rounds, providing the fans in Ho Chih Minh City with non-stop striking action. Through the majority of the contest, Nguyen proved to be more aggressive with her combinations as Tomar took a mostly defensive stance. In the third and final round, Nguyen picked up the pace and outstruck Tomar to end the bout on a strong note and walk away with the decision win in her home country,” the fight recap sent out by ONE Championship (courtesy of FightMag.com.au)
