WATCH: All of Martin Nguyen's championship wins
In both world title-clinching wins, Martin Nguyen shocked the world.

Reigning ONE Championship Featherweight and Lightweight world champion Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen will be looking to make history by becoming a three-division world champion when he takes on Team Lakay's Kevin 'The Silencer' Belingon for the interim ONE Championship Bantamweight World title at ONE: Reign of Kings, Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena. 

If Nguyen can pull out a win, he becomes the only three-division world champion in mixed martial arts, let alone the only simultaneous three-division champion in the sport. 

It also gives him another shot at becoming the undisputed bantamweight king, as it assures him a shot at reigning champion Bibiano Fernandes once the Brazilian star is cleared to return. 

Before Nguyen and Belingon go to war however, take a look back at The Situ-Asian's world title wins in ONE Championship! 

 

Martin Nguyen versus Marat Gafurov 2 (ONE Championship: Quest for Greatness, August 18, 2017)

A rematch of their 2015 battle for the interim featherweight crown, Nguyen had revenge on his mind after Gafurov handed the Vietnamese-Australian star his first career loss. Nguyen would get his retribution thanks to his now-famous right hand. This would also make Nguyen the ONE Championship Featherweight World Champion. 

 

Martin Nguyen versus Eduard Folayang (ONE Championship: Legends of the World, November 10, 2017)

Just months after shocking the world in his win over Marat Gafurov, Martin Nguyen went up a weight class and again stunned the world with his one-punch KO win over Filipino MMA star Eduard Folayang of Team Lakay. Again, Nguyen's killer right hand was to thank as he made history by becoming ONE Championship's first two-division world champion. 

 

Martin Nguyen versus Christian Lee 2 (ONE Championship: Unstoppable Dreams, May 18, 2018)

His first defense of the ONE featherweight title, Martin Nguyen looked to repeat history against Singapore's Christian Lee, after having choked Lee out cold back in 2016. And while this rematch was definitely more competitive than their first fight, Nguyen prevailed to hold on to the featherweight strap.
