From ONE FC:
04 September 2012 – Singapore: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC) announced today that the bout that took place on 31 August 2012 at ONE FC: PRIDE OF A NATION in the Philippines between Shannon Wiratchai and Mitch Chilson has been ruled a no contest after a thorough review by ONE FC Officials. Shannon Wiratchai’s record will now officially be recorded as two wins and one no contest and Mitch Chilson’s will officially be recorded as three wins, one loss and one no contest.
After a thorough review of the match, ONE FC Officials have decided that Wiratchai landed an illegal leg kick to a grounded Chilson in round two and referee Moritaka Oshiro incorrectly stopped the fight as he determined at that point that Chilson could not properly defend himself. This win for Wiratchai has now been reversed and this fight will now be officially ruled as a no contest.
Also, earlier this week ONE FC announced that it will adopt full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks, eliminating the open attack signal from the referee. All soccer kicks to a grounded opponent are now legal at all times. This decision was made to prevent any future confusion for fighters when delivering kicks to grounded opponents.
