It’s win-or-go-home time for Team Lakay’s Honorio Banario.

The former ONE Featherweight World Champion, who is 14-7, has thrown his name into the ONE Lightweight Grand Prix.

Standing in his way is unbeaten Lowen Tynanes (9-0). The quarterfinals bout will take place on Friday, January 25, during ONE: Hero’s Ascent at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

The Rock has experienced a career resurgence since moving up to the lightweight division. He has won six of his last seven bouts, and is considered one of the top competitors in the weight class.

On the other hand, Tynanes is a former King of the Cage Light Welterweight Champion and is a Hawaii state champion wrestler.

He owns victories over some of the lightweight division’s best, including Rasul Yakhyaev, Koji Ando, and even current ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang. Now, following a nearly three-year break, the American is ready to resume his career.

The main event of Hero’s Ascent will see the ultimate end to the rivalry between ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje Eustaquio and former champion Adriano Moraes. Also part of the card is Danny Kingad, who will face the dangerous Tatsumitsu Wada.
