Kevin Belingon

ONE: Inside The Matrix III hits your screens on Friday, November 13, with a five-bout card sure to excite with a bantamweight banger in the main event.

Former ONE Bantamweight World Champion Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon takes on #5-ranked contender John "Hands Of Stone" Lineker with a meeting against Bibiano Fernandes hanging in the balance.

While that main event is getting most of the attention, for good reason, the four-bout undercard will deliver fireworks as well.


The event will kickoff with Team Lakay's Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang taking on Hiroba Minowa. Adiwang has been on fire since joining ONE and is one of the organization's most exciting newcomers. Adiwang is a finisher and pushes the pace from the opening bell. The Filipino is all action.

Welterweight Murad Ramazanov takes on Hiroyuki Tetsuka as he looks to extend his unbeaten streak in The Home of Martial Arts. Also in action, former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio meets South Korea's Song Min Jong.

And in one of the most highly anticipated mixed martial arts debuts of 2020, two-time ADCC World Champion Yuri Simoes makes his way to the ONE Circle to take on China's Fan Rong. Can the Brazilian submission specialist make a big statement in his first bout, or will Fan spoil the debut?

Twenty-year-old prodigy Elisabeth Clay stole the show claiming double gold at the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation Pan American No-Gi Championships Saturday in Texas. Clay won the women's black belt medium heavyweight and open divisions while scoring six submissions in as many matches.

On the men's side, Giancarlo Bodoni won a referee's decision over Lucas Barbosa to capture the heavyweight black belt division after losing to Barbosa in the finals last year. But Barbosa turned around and defeated Bodoni 4-0 in the semis of the open weight class on his way to capturing gold in that division.

In a back and forth battle, Charles Oliveira finally claimed UFC gold winning the lightweight title against Michael Chandler in Houston, TX Saturday night. And Oliveira, the UFC's all time submission king with 14 wins via that route, did it on his feet knocking Chandler out in the second round.

The Brazilian opened with low kicks but Chandler quickly took the fight to him scoring a damaging left hook. He then dropped to the ground attempting a guillotine choke but Oliveira worked out of it to take Chandler's back. The American was eventually able to explode out of the position and regain his feet though, from there raining punches down on the prone Oliveira.
