TOKYO, JAPAN - Team Lakay's newest addition to the ONE Championship roster was impressive in his promotional debut, as Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang began his ONE career with a first-round stoppage victory over Japanese champion Senzo Ikeda at ONE: Century, Sunday morning at the Ryogoku Kokugikan here.
Adiwang, a ONE Warrior Series contract winner, wasted little time in bringing the action to the ground, taking Ikeda down and working towards a modified armbar submission attempt.
Moments later, Ikeda had managed to escape the position, but the action stopped after the Japanese star appeared to have suffered an injury to his arm.
The official stoppage came at 1:57 of Round 1.
Ikeda kicks things off in spectacular fashion for Team Lakay, who hope to have a big night here in Tokyo.
