It will be another big night for the Philippines when three Team Lakay stars represent the country at the previously recorded ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III, which airs to the public on Friday, November 13.
At the Singapore Indoor Stadium, former ONE Bantamweight World Champion Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon turns his attention to fifth-ranked bantamweight John “Hands of Stone” Lineker in what is expected to be an action-packed main event between two of the hardest hitters in ONE Championship.
This matchup has been on fans’ minds ever since Lineker signed to The Home Of Martial Arts last year, and it’s finally set to happen. With 24 knockout wins between the two athletes—and their willingness to stand and trade—expect this bout to be a banger.
“It’s a match everyone has been looking forward to for a long time, and now we’re finally here,” Belingon said.
“This match is going to be exciting given our styles, and fans are up for a treat. Expect me to be at my best against him.”
Aside from Belingon, another ex-World Champion in Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio returns to action on Friday night.
The former ONE Flyweight World Champion takes on “The Running Man” Song Min Jong in the co-main event of the evening, as Eustaquio continues his road back to the top of the division.
“Gravity” is targeting consistency this time around, though. He has not won consecutive matches since 2018, the year he beat Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes for the ONE Flyweight World Title, and a win will put him back on course.
Meanwhile, fifth-ranked strawweight and Team Lakay’s hottest athlete, Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang, targets his eighth straight win when battles debuting Shooto Champion Hiroba Minowa in the event’s curtain raiser.
Catch the previously-recorded ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III this Friday, November 13, on One Sports and One Sports+ or stream it for free by downloading the ONE Super App.
