Former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario makes it 2-0 for team Lakay after scoring a split decision victory against Adrian “Hunter” Pang of Australia at ONE Championship ONE: Heroes of Honor at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila.

The 28-year-old native of Mankayan, Benguet, who is on a four-fight winning streak coming in to this fight against Pang, electrifies the crowd inside the 20,000-seater arena, scoring significant punches and kicks that convinced 2 out of the 3 judges to declare him winner of the fight.

Banario, who has been undefeated inside the cage for almost three years, continues to impress his fans with his agility and strength, winning fights either standing-up or and in the ground.

With another huge victory over a quality opponent, a title fight could be waiting anytime soon for the Filipino ring warrior.

With the victory, Banario improves his record to 13-6, while Pang will go back to the drawing board carrying a 22-12-2 MMA record.
