3 key takeaways from ONE: FIRE & FURY

It was another explosive night for ONE Championship as it opened 2020 in the Philippines in the most exciting way possible. On Friday, 31 January, ONE: FIRE & FURY went down in Manila, Philippines with a bang, and the martial arts world was left begging for more action. With another event in the bag, here are three key takeaways from the Mall Of Asia Arena.    Joshua Pacio’s Skills Are Growing At A Blistering Pace Any strawweight who watched Joshua “The Passion” Pacio defend his World Title against Alex “Little Rock” Silva should be concerned, especially with the 24-year-old Filipino closing all the holes in his game.  Pacio looked crisp on the feet as always, but it was his ground game that turned out to be the difference in this match.  The Baguio City native was confident to roll with one of the best grapplers in the organization and, at times, he was even on the offensive, attempting a guillotine choke and a heel hook in the bout.  “Yes I was surprised. We all know the level of Silva’s grappling, so Joshua really surprised me with the confidence that he showed in the bout – he was even the one attacking at times,” Team Lakay coach Mark Sangiao said.  With Pacio picking up confidence on the ground game to compliment his world class striking, the rest of the division looks in trouble.    “Thunder Kid” May Be The Next Big Strawweight Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang said in the past that entertaining fans is just as important as winning.  On Friday, he proved it was not just lip-service.  Adiwang was a burning ball of energy and then some as he needed just one round to dispatch Pongsiri “The Smiling Assassin” Mitsatit in the lead card of the night.  The 26-year-old rocked his Thai counterpart early on before raining down heavy ground and pound from the mount. Though Mitsatit survived the initial onslaught, Adiwang still finished the bout in style as he locked on a kimura and forced the submission.    The Lightweight Division Keeps Getting Deeper  Eduard “Landslide” Folayang found out firsthand how difficult his climb back to the pinnacle of the ONE Lightweight division will be after absorbing a razor-thin split decision loss to Pieter “The Archangel” Buist in the co-main event of the evening.  At age 36, Folayang has been adamant in saying he still wants to regain his World Title, and for two rounds he looked good against the bigger Dutchman.  All it took, though, was one well-timed head kick from Buist early in the third to change the direction of the match for good as the Combat Brothers standout turned the bout to his favor and later stole the victory.  Aside from Buist, who targets a showdown with ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee, the division also boasts top talent like Saygid Guseyn “Dagi”  Arslanaliev, Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez, Lowen Tynanes, and Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki for starters. .....»»

Team Lakay s Adiwang, Iniong victorious at ONE: FIRE & FURY prelims

Team Lakay got off to a 2-0 start in the preliminary card of ONE: FIRE & FURY iwith Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang and Gina “Conviction” Iniong both getting big wins, Friday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.  Explosive strawweight Adiwang lived up to the hype as he needed just over three minutes to submit Thailand’s Pongsiri “The Smiling Assassin” Mitsatit. Lito Adiwang ???????? makes it 2-0 for Team Lakay with a slick kimura submission against Pongsiri Mitsatit! ???????? #WeAreONE #ONEChampionship #FireAndFury pic.twitter.com/iZIiFp2k1n — ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) January 31, 2020 After feeling each other out, Adiwang blasted Pongsiri with a kick to the body and a flurry of punches that had the Thai striker rocked and in survival mode. Adiwang unloaded a barrage of elbows, but Pongsiri was able to survive the Pinoy’s onslaught.  Adiwang shot in for a takedown and was able to bring the action to the ground, but Pongsiri managed to reverse positions and control the Pinoy from the back.  The 27-year old Baguio native trapped Pongsiri’s arm and timed his transition well, securing the modified kimura lock and forcing the tap, reminiscent of what his teammate Joshua Pacio did to the same Thai opponent.  The stoppage came at the 3:02 mark of the first round.  This comes after the ONE Warrior Series contract winner made a splash in his main card debut at ONE: CENTURY back in Japan, defeating Senzo Ikeda, also via submission.  Adiwang improves to 11-2 in his professional career with seven consecutive wins.  In a women’s atomweight contest, Iniong used her superior wrestling and grappling skills to grind out a Unanimous Decision win over India’s Asha “Knockout Queen” Roka.  Gina Iniong ???????? gets Team Lakay off to a hot start with a unanimous decision win over Asha Roka! ???????? #WeAreONE #ONEChampionship #FireAndFury pic.twitter.com/zRbSRdnIZz — ONE Championship (@ONEChampionship) January 31, 2020 Iniong, a 2019 SEA Games Kickboxing gold medalist, opened with a takedown and kept Roka grounded all throughout the opening round.  Roka offered up a bit more resistance in the second round, but Iniong proved to be the stronger grappler, threatening for a guillotine choke late in the round.  It was all Iniong again in the final round as she was able to take Roka down at will to secure the clear-cut decision win.  Iniong improves to 9-4 in her career as she earns back-to-back victories.  In the opening bout, Jomary “The Zamboanginian Fighter” Torres wasn’t as fortunate, as she was rendered unable to continue after taking a pair of unintentional knees to the groin, leading to a No Contest. .....»»
