History is made.
Going up against the champion of a heavier weight division, reigning ONE Championship featherweight champion Martin Nguyen shocked the world by knocking out Eduard Folayang to snatch the ONE lightweight world championship at ONE: Legends of the World, Friday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Nguyen landed a well-timed counter hook as Folayang attempted a spinning heel kick, knocking the Pinoy superstar out cold.
The stoppage came in at the 2:20 mark of the second round.
Nguyen now holds both the ONE Championship featherweight and lightweight titles.
