Congratulations to Melvin Tang, our new ONE Fantasy Champion! Great job! We look forward to seeing you defend the title next week!
Rene Catalan thought he was close to victory in the first round, but he gives credit and respect to ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua Pacio for pulling off the win. "I felt like his heel had already snapped, but that's Joshua," Catalan said. "He's the champion, and he's not going to give up."
Team Lakay Head Coach Mark Sangiao was as proud as could be with Joshua Pacio's performance. "I'm very happy we made it again on top," he said. "That's life. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. You just have to do what you can."

Folayang met his future wife at the gym. Cool, right?
Folyang, the former ONE Lightweight World Champion, recently suffered back-to-back losses to Shinya Aoki and Eddie Alvarez. He knows he must win this match if he wants to get back into the title picture, and he believes he will.
Geje Eustaquio lived up to his "Rematch King" moniker. This time, he avenged a prior loss from Toni Tauru. Although Tauru seemingly came close to submitting him again in the first round, the Filipino was confident he would be just fine. "I know it was the same position, a position that I lost in," he said. "But I practiced that situation a thousand times, and practice makes perfect."
And now, it’s time for the co-main event of the evening. The Philippines’ own Eduard “Landslide” Folayang meets Mongolia’s Amarsanaa “Spear” Tsogookhuu.
