: ONE Championship completed a historic evening with a stacked card at ONE: CENTURY PART II.
The mega event which took place at the Ryogoku Kokugikan featured some of Japan’s top martial arts talents, alongside the biggest international superstars.
In the main event, reigning ONE Light Heavyweight World Champion “The Burmese Python” Aung La N Sang of Myanmar retained his World Title with an incredible performance against ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera of the Philippines.
Aung La set the tempo in the first round, peppering Vera with leg kicks in an attempt to slow down the taller man.
Against the fence, Vera would connect on a series of punches and elbows, which Aung La wore well. The second frame opened up with more action on the inside, as both men connected on huge combinations from close range.
Vera and Aung La took each other’s best shots. A furious exchange of thunderous strikes against the fence ensued.
Aung La landed a sharp spinning back elbow to rock Vera, sending the Filipino-American to the canvas. Aung La put on the finishing touches with ground-and-pound while Vera covered up.
Japanese legend and former ONE Lightweight World Champion Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki made quick work of former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario of the Philippines, winning by first-round submission in less than a minute.
Banario tried his best to keep distance, but Aoki closed the gap almost immediately and fished for the bodylock takedown.
Once they hit the mat, Aoki saw the opening and instantly latched onto a D’Arce choke to seal the deal and force the tap in just 54 seconds.
Reigning ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes of Brazil ended his rivalry with former title-holder Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon of the Philippines, winning by second round submission.
After a brief exchange on the feet, Fernandes immediately shot in for a successful takedown, landing in side control.
The Brazilian controlled Belingon with his top game for the majority of the first round. The second round saw Belingon come out firing, but Fernandes was relentless in his pursuit of the takedown.
As Belingon left Fernandes an opening, the champion swiftly capitalized to take his back. Moments later, Fernandes sunk in a deep rear naked choke to force the tap.
Italian-Armenian kickboxing legend Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan punched and kicked his way to the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Championship and a cool USD 1 million grand prize after edging out France’s Samy “AK47” Sana by unanimous decision.
Petrosyan navigated Sana’s height and reach advantage to connect on crisp punch combinations throughout the three-round affair.
In the end, Petrosyan put through a dominant performance to earn the nod on the judges’ scorecards and the biggest win in his ONE career. Official results for ONE: CENTURY PART II ONE Light Heavyweight World Championship:
