The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), completed a historic evening with a stacked card at ONE: CENTURY 世紀 PART II. The mega event which took place at the Ryogoku Kokugikan featured some of Japan’s top martial arts talents, alongside the biggest international superstars. In the main event, ONE Light Heavyweight World Champion Aung La N Sang put together a spectacular performance, finishing ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon Vera in the second round to retain his World Title.
Japanese legend and former ONE Lightweight World Champion Shinya “Tobikan Judan” Aoki made quick work of former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario of the Philippines, winning by first-round submission in less than a minute. Banario tried his best to keep distance, but Aoki closed the gap almost immediately and fished for the bodylock takedown. Once they hit the mat, Aoki saw the opening and instantly latched onto a D’Arce choke to seal the deal and force the tap in just 54 seconds.
