Filipino mixed martial artist and Team Lakay strawweight Lito Adiwang has another chance to earn himself a ONE Championship contract when he competes in the ONE Warrior Series February event on Thursday, February 28th in Singapore.
The ONE Warrior Series card is the off-shoot of the ONE Warrior Series reality documentary show hosted by ONE Vice President and MMA legend Rich Franklin wherein he scours Asia for fresh talent to bring to ONE Championship.
Among those that have earned ONE Championship contracts through the ONE Warrior Series are reigning ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion Stamp Fairtex of Thailand and Filipino-Kiwi bantamweight contender Mark Abelardo.
Adiwang made good on his maiden ONE Warrior Series event appearance last year with a first-round knockout win over American Jose Manuel Huerta.
The 25-year old Adiwang faces Brazilian Alberto Correia in a strawweight bout. A win for Adiwang could finally earn him a ONE contract and put him alongside his Team Lakay teammates on the main roster, so to speak.
Also on the card, Malaysia-based Filipino Trestle Tan looks to reenergize his mixed martial arts career when he takes on Japan's Kimihiro Eto in a lightweight bout.
