The featherweight bout between Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly, 33, of the Philippines and Meas Meu, 27, of Cambodia was the shortest one among the 11 matches at “ONE: Global Superheroes” on January 26, 2018 in the Philippines. It did not even last for half a minute.

It was also a redemptive loss for Kelly who came from a loss to Emilio Urrutia at “ONE: Quest for Greatness” on August 18, 2017. At “ONE: Global Superheroes,” Kelly knocked out Meul at 0:21of Round 1.

A member of the famed Team Lakay of Baguio City, Kelly delivered a sensational first-round knockout of his opponent by dropping him with a high kick. At the opening bell, the Team Lakay fighter engaged Meul at the center of the cage and connected on a quick three-punch combination before delivering the final blow that sent the Cambodian fighter face first into the canvas.

Winning at “ONE: Global Superheroes,” Kelly improved his record to 10 wins and 4 losses. On the other hand, Meul now has 5 wins and 1 loss.

Kelly’s fellow Team Lakay fighters Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio and Joshua “The Passion” Pacio also emerged victorious at “ONE: Global Superheroes.” In the main event, Eustaquio clinched the ONE Interim Flyweight World Championship, edging Kairat “The Kazakh” Akhmetov by unanimous decision in an exhilarating five-round title tilt.

In the co-main event, Pacio unveiled an improved grappling game, submitting China’s Lan Ming Qiang via rear naked choke in the very first round. Pacio started off with his world-class wushu, operating from range with fast and powerful kicks.
