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.

​Murad Ramazanov vs. Hiroyuki Tetsuka

Lito Adiwang vs. Hiroba Minowa

Minowa Winner by Split Decision

ONE: Inside The Matrix III kicked-off with a tightly contested battle between Lito Adiwang and Hiroba Minowa. Adiwang nearly finished the contest in the first round with a tight Kimura attempt, but Minowa survived and began to work from top position. And that would be the story of the bout the rest of the way. Minowa's grappling edged out Adiwang and announced himself as a major player in the strawweight division in his ONE debut.
