Baguio City, Philippines – Baguio-born Eduard “Landslide” Folayang knocked out Singaporean lightweight fighter Amir Khan in the third round of their rematch at One Fight Night 14 on Saturday to end his losing streak in Mixed Martial Arts.
Folayang first won via unanimous decision in his ONE Lightweight MMA World title bout against Khan in 2018.
After his victory in 2019, the Filipino legend had lost five straight in MMA.
His losing skid, however, ended when he hammered down the Singaporean with his left hook, dropping Khan to the canvas flat on his back.
The referee was forced to wave to stop the match at the 1:57 mark of Round 3.
The 39-year-old fighter who, along with his fellow world champions, established Lions Nation MMA after their departure from Team Lakay, improved his record to 23-13.
Meanwhile, Team Lakay's Stephen “Sniper” Loman suffered his first defeat in One Championship after Brazilian John Lineker prevented him from gaining control. Lineker won by unanimous decision.
Jenelyn Olsim from the same stable was also dominated by Malaysian Jihin Radzuan via arm bar at the final round.
