06 June 2018 – Macau, China: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced the complete fight card of “ONE: Pinnacle of Power,” which is set for the Studio City Event Center in Macau, China on June 23, 2018. Like in the promotion’s recent events, strikes-only bouts under ONE Super Series will be mixed with the mixed martial arts matches.
One of the most awaited matches on the MMA card is the bout between former ONE Featherweight World Champion Narantungalag “Tungaa” Jadambaa, 42, of Mongolia and Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly, 34, of the Philippines. The two are among the top contenders in ONE Championship’s deep featherweight division.
“ONE: Pinnacle of Power” marks Jadambaa’s return after more than a year. In his most recent bout, which took place on November 11, 2016 at “ONE: Defending Honor,” he failed to recapture the ONE Featherweight World Champion belt from former champion Marat “Cobra” Gafurov, 33, of Russia.
At 12 wins and 5 losses, Jadambaa has faced the biggest names in the sport and is a winner of two of his last three bouts. He holds notable wins over Adrian Pang, Honorio Banario, and Eric Kelly, elder brother of Edward.
Representing Team Lakay of Baguio City, Philippines, Edward is one of the brightest featherweight contenders to emerge from the Philippines. Every time he competes, he is a complete martial artist who looks to showcase Team Lakay’s world-renowned Wushu.
Edward won four of his last five bouts all by spectacular finish. In his most recent outing, he shocked the world with a 21-second knockout of Meas Meul of Cambodia, the fastest in ONE featherweight history.
“ONE: Pinnacle of Power” will be headlined by reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan, 30, of China and Laura Balin, 38, of Argentina. In the co-main event, reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes, 29, of Brazil will have a rematch with reigning ONE Interim Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, 29, who is also representing Team Lakay.
