Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series, a subsidiary of ONE Championship, held its action-packed ONE Warrior Series 7 event in Singapore on Tuesday.

In the main event, Team Lakay’s Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang of the Philippines defeated Anthony Do of Vietnam by unanimous decision. Adiwang’s performance earned him a six-figure ONE Championship contract.

After a series of compelling contests, Adiwang, Dave Bangguigui, Caitlin McEwan, Michael Walker and Anthony Do each received a Warrior Bonus for their extraordinary performances.

Rich Franklin, CEO of ONE Warrior Series said after the event “If you missed the ONE Warrior Series, you should check out the replay on the ONE Super App. From top to bottom, this is the most exciting card we have ever put together, and every athlete put it on the line! Lito, the 10th ONE Championship contract winner, has had the toughest matchups since he joined ONE Warrior Series, and never disappointed with his performances. If you are in ONE Championship’s strawweight division, take note of this guy because he’s coming to shake things up!”

Jonathan Fong, Director of ONE Warrior Series: “Lito always put on the most exciting performances every time he stepped into the ONE Warrior Series ring. In fact, he’s even won a Warrior Bonus in every appearance, which is a testament to his abilities. With Lito moving on to ONE Championship, no doubt the already stacked strawweight division will take notice of his power and explosiveness. Look for him to make an immediate impact as soon as he gets the call.”

A member of the famed Team Lakay of Baguio City, Philippines, rising Filipino martial arts star Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang began his professional MMA career in 2012, winning his first three bouts via thrilling TKO’s.

After gaining valuable experience in regional Philippine promotions, Adiwang then earned a place on Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series in 2018. Posting knockout victories over Jose Manuel Huerta and Alber Correia Da Silva, Adiwang quickly rose to the top of the heap in a talented division. In his most recent outing, Adiwang thoroughly defeated opponent Anthony Do of Vietnam to win by three-round unanimous decision.

With his performance earning him the highly coveted six-figure contract, Adiwang now joins some of the world’s best strawweight talent in ONE Championship.
