John Lineker

On Friday, November 13, ONE: Inside The Matrix III continued the strong showing from global athletes on the ONE Championship stage.

In the main event, bantamweights John "Hands Of Stone" Lineker and Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon went toe-to-toe to make their case for being the top contender to Bibiano Fernandes and the ONE Bantamweight World Championship.

Four more bouts lined the event and provided a card full of competitive mixed martial arts action.


Main Event: Kevin Belingon vs. John Lineker

Lineker Winner by TKO

Round 2 - 1:16

If Lineker wanted to stake his claim at being the top contender in the bantamweight division, he did just that in Singapore with a second round TKO showing against Belingon. The Filipino had moments of his own and stood in the pocket with Lineker, but eventually the power was simply too much to overcome. Lineker's body work and forward pressure put him in a position to close the show and net his biggest victory on the global stage.

When The Fast and the Furious (2001) sped into the psyche's of illegal street racing enthusiasts, with a penchant for danger and the psychotic insanity of arrant automotive adventure, the brusque bearish, quasi-hero rebel, Dominic "Dom" Toretto was caustic yet salvationally portrayed with the power of a train using a Vin Diesel engine.
