Four of the most lethal knockout artists in the MMA industry have been added to ONE Championship’s 10-year anniversary show, ONE X, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Saturday, 26 March.
That evening, Filipino rising star Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang squares off against surging compatriot Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado. Moreover, Singaporean favorite Amir Khan makes his long-awaited return against hard-hitting veteran Ryogo “Kaitai” Takahashi.
Adiwang has long been considered a promising strawweight in the talent-packed division, and he has earned a reputation for being one of the most explosive fighters in the organization.
The Team Lakay standout owns 13 career victories, holds an impressive 85 percent finishing rate, and has wins over the likes of Anthony “The Antidote” Do, Namiki Kawahara, and Pancrase Champion Senzo Ikeda.
“Thunder Kid” will look to rebound from a tough loss delivered by the hands of #2-ranked contender Jarred “The Monkey God” Brooks, but his countryman is on a hot streak right now.
And now that he is training at Marrok Force MMA in Bangkok, Thailand, “The Jaguar” feels like he has taken his game to another level and plans to illustrate that by taking out Adiwang on 26 March.
As for Khan, this is a huge moment.
The Singaporean mixed martial artist – who has the second-most victories (13), finishes (11), and knockouts (9) in ONE history – will be competing for the first time since getting reconstructive surgery for a torn ACL in April 2021.
Khan is extra motivated to bounce back from his last loss in December 2020, and he wants to prove to fans across the globe that he’s his heavy-handed self again.
But his first assignment back is not an easy one, as the longtime lightweight star will move down to the featherweight division to face former Shooto Pacific Rim Champion Takahashi.
The Japanese veteran holds a 14-5 record, with 10 of those victories coming by way of knockout. In his ONE Championship run, he has defeated the likes of Malaysian sensation Keanu Subba and South Korean phenom “The Big Heart” Yoon Chang Min.
