Coming off her first loss in ONE Championship last November 24 to Mei Yamaguchi, Team Lakay’s Gina “The Conviction” Iniong was able to outclass Jenny “Lady Go-go” Huang during the prelims of ONE: Heroes of Honor at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
Iniong, a former championship contender, raised her slate to 7-3 while dropping Huang to 5-3.
The Baguio-native displayed her crisp striking during the opening round, landing solid shots with her left hand to bruise her opponent.
Early in the second round, the 28-year-old Filipina knocked down Huang. Huang was able to recover, even taking down her opponent. There was a mad scramble to close out the round with Huang’s kimura attempt being reversed to an armbar attempt by Iniong.
It was all Iniong in the final round as she spent the majority of the final canto on top.
In the opening bout, Adrian “Papua Bad Boy” Matheis (5-3) edged out Lan Ming Qiang (1-3) in an entertaining, back-and-forth bout.
The 24-year-old Indonesian spent the majority of the bout on top with a mount. The Chinese fighter though was able to survive every barrage Matheis gave him.
