FEARLESS -- ONE bantamweight top contender Kevin Belingon has been named as one of the best knockout artists among MMA fighters signed with ONE Championship. The Ifugao pride stopped some of the best fighters in the division in the past several years. -- ONE photo


ONE Championship, the biggest MMA promotion in Asia, has rated Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon as one of the five best knockout artists in his league.

“The Philippines’ Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon is one of the promotion’s most elite strikers,” ONE announced in its website on June 29.

ONE credited Belingon for his recent technical knockout victory over Finnish grappling sensation Toni Tauru on April 21 before roaring Filipino fans at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The 29-year-old Ifugao pride, who trains with the famed Team Lakay, has also battled some of the fiercest fighters in the bantamweight division such as Muin Gafurov, whom he defeated via unanimous decision.

Belingon also shocked MMA fans with his stunning knockout of previously undefeated David Aranda Santacana in Dec. 6, 2013.

Of his 15 wins as a professional MMA fighter, he has won six bouts via TKO and KO while the rest came via decision.

Belingon has never been knocked out by any opponent, as his losses were via decision and submission through kimura and rear naked choke.

“Never keen to draw out his bouts, Belingon likes to swarm his opponents with relentless haymakers from the opening bell, not stopping until he either breaks their will, or knocks them unconscious,” ONE said of Belingon.

At present, Belingon is just waiting for a call to fight the winner between reigning ONE bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes and Andrew Leone, which is the main event of ONE Championship in Macau on Aug. 5.

He may also face Reece McLaren of Australia, who was also a top bantamweight contender defeated by Fernandes in December 2016.

The other four best KO artists in ONE are Vitaly Bigdash, Timofey Nastyukhin, Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev, and Luis Santos.
