ONE Championship: Amid ‘Split’ Judges, Gina Iniong Relieved To Win With Conviction

Gina "Conviction" Iniong is finally back in contention for the ONE Women’s Atomweight World Championship.   She returned to the World Title picture following a split decision victory over the previously unbeaten Jihin "Shadow Cat" Radzuan at ONE: CLASH OF LEGENDS, which took place from the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on Saturday, 16 February.   The Benguet native dictated the tempo from the get-go. She continually landed her patented right hand over and over, and then mixed her striking attack with well-executed takedowns.   A late third-round surge from the Malaysian put Iniong at the edge of her seat when the judges’ scorecards were read.   Though confident she did enough to win, the Filipina was surprised to hear that a split decision was to be announced after three grueling rounds.   Fortunately for her, the result went in her favor.   “To be honest, I got nervous when they announced that it was a split decision,” said Iniong, who improved her mixed martial arts record to 8-4.   “I thought it should have been won by unanimous decision. I almost lost my breath when I heard that, but it’s okay. I think I did well. I was able to execute our game plan during the fight.”   After going 1-2 in her last three outings, a close loss is something “Conviction" could not really afford.   Iniong’s hopes of one day becoming the first Filipina World Champion in mixed martial arts is still very much alive, and she certainly needed that win to stay the course.   "It was a big relief,” she admitted.   “I struggled in my last bouts, so it feels really good to get back on track. Hopefully, this is a start of another run for me at the belt.”   "I was confident that I did enough to get my hands raised in the end. [Jihin] Radzuan is a tremendous warrior, and I wasn't expecting this to be an easy fight at all. Thankfully, our game plan worked.".....»»
