ONE Championship, the largest global sports media property in Asian history, has just launched a league called ONE Super Series, which is exclusive to striking martial arts. The new league made its debut at “ONE: Heroes of Honor” on April 20, 2018 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines.
ONE Super Series will eventually have its standalone event, according to ONE Championship chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong. But for now, the striking bouts of the new league will be mixed with the mixed martial arts bouts like on the “ONE: Heroes of Honor” fight card.
In the main event of the MMA card, Team Lakay’s Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon dazzled once again with another ferocious display of striking, obliterating opponent Andrew Leone of the United States within two rounds. Action was fierce and relentless from start to finish, and began with Belingon swarming Leone from the sound of the opening bell.
As the American tried desperately to stave off attacks which came from all directions, Belingon continued to put on the pressure. In the second round, Belingon connected on a thunderous spinning side kick that sent Leone to the canvas, where he followed and unloaded an unending volley of strikes to earn the technical knockout victory and the GoDaddy KO of the Night.
