Team Lakay mixed martial arts star Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang makes his fourth main-stage ONE Championship appearance at ONE: UNBREAKABLE on Friday, January 22.
The ONE Warrior Series contract winner is set for an epic three-round strawweight mixed martial arts contest against China’s Hexigetu “Wolf Of The Grasslands” at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Adiwang, a two-time Philippine National Wushu Champion, had a fine start to his career in The Home Of Martial Arts, picking up two memorable first-round finishes against more experienced contenders.
The Filipino warrior’s heroics in the Circle pushed him to the fifth-ranked spot in the strawweight division of the ONE Athlete Rankings.
However, a narrow defeat to Hiroba Minowa at ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III sent him slightly down the pecking order.
He is now ready to turn in his best performance against an opponent who enters this clash fresh off a split decision win against former ONE Strawweight World Champion Dejdamrong Sor. Amnuaysirichoke.
Additionally, ONE’s first show of 2021 will be headlined by a monumental clash between ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Champion Alaverdi “Babyface Killer” Ramazanov and #2-ranked contender Capitan Petchyindee Academy.
Ramazanov hasn’t competed since winning the inaugural belt against “Muay Thai Boy” Zhang Chenglong at ONE: MARK OF GREATNESS in December 2019, while his opposite number enters the contest after making history.
At ONE: A NEW BREED III, Capitan knocked out six-time Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Petchtanong Petchfergus in six seconds, the fastest-ever victory in ONE Super Series.
In the co-main event, two grappling specialists meet in a three-round lightweight confrontation as former ONE Lightweight World Champion Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki battles American ace James Nakashima, who makes his debut in the weight class.
