In November 2016, the former school teacher from the Philippines, Eduard Folayang, entered the ONE Championship cage opposite Japanese martial arts legend, Shinya Aoki, as the underdog.
In the second round, the Filipino made an exciting comeback, leading to a scintillating third-round finish via flying knee to ground and pound. Inarguably, it was one of the biggest upset victories of the year as Eduard Folayang was crowned the ONE Lightweight World Champion.
