Fast rising mixed martial arts contender Lito Adiwang is closely monitoring fights under the ONE Championship Super Series, which features the best Muay Thai and kickboxer athletes in the planet.

More fondly known as “Thunder Kid,” Adiwang is currently at home in Baguio with the rest of his Team Lakay teammates but he closely watched the dramatic duel bet-ween four-time Muay Thai world champion Pongsiri PK Saenchaimuaythaigym of Thailand and World Boxing Council super lightweight champion Sean “Clubber” Clancy of Ireland.

The Thai athlete won the match via unanimous decision.

Ahead of this Friday night’s martial arts blockbuster, Adiwang offers his take on the spectacular main event, and how he thinks the action will go down.

“It’s champion versus champion in the main event. Sean Clancy is a technical fighter from Ireland who went to Thailand to train and fight there and eventually becomes a champion. He has even faced some legends of the sport like Saenchai. That’s how talented and good he is,” said Adiwang.

“But in this fight, I have to go for Pongsiri. I believe Pongsiri will bring everything he’s got into this fight. For me, he has the edge in experience and his fighting style is aggressive,” he added.

Adiwang is no stranger to the world of striking martial arts. He is a two-time former Philippine national wushu champion, building his reputation by joining Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series and wreaking havoc on the opposition.

He is currently riding a seven-bout winning streak, with only one of those victories reaching the final bell. True to his nickname, Adiwang has taken ONE Championship’s strawweight division by storm.

ONE Championship allows its athletes to cross-compete between striking disciplines and MMA. 

The most notable transition has been that of former two-sport ONE World Champion Stamp Fairtex, who has competed in Muay Thai, kickboxing, and MMA. Another notable name is France’s Fabio Pinca, who recently made his mixed martial arts debut.
