ONE Feature - “Dagi” Arslanaliev’s Meteoric Rise
Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev was forced to grow up fast. Shipped off to a boarding school at the tender age of 5, “Dagi” had to endure through the torments of a dangerous Dagestan neighborhood. Discovering martial arts as a means to defend himself in the tough area, the Turkish dynamo took his skills and experiences in the sport a step further and established himself as one the top contenders in the ONE lightweight division. He now faces his toughest test yet when he kicks off his ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix journey against Kiwi-Malaysian powerhouse Ev Ting at ONE: CALL TO GREATNESS in Singapore.
