Things did not go Eduard Folayang’s way in the main event of ONE Championship’s Battleground II on Friday.
The card was topped by Folayang and former UFC/TUF veteran Zhang Lipeng, making his debut for the promotion. Folayang, a former lightweight champion, was badly in need of a win to start the night, having amassed a record of 1-5 across his last six fights leading into Battleground II.
It didn’t get any better for the Filipino fighter in his latest outing. Instead, newcomer Lipeng went the distance with the ex-champ, earning the unanimous decision in the three-round main event.
Battleground II’s co-main event went the distance as well, with Alex “Little Rock” Silva earning a unanimous decision win over Miao Li Tao in the strawweight scrap.
