What’s At Stake For Kevin Belingon, John Lineker At ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III?

·2-min read

The first two events of ONE Championship’s INSIDE THE MATRIX series delivered fireworks.

Now, the promotion is set to ignite the martial arts world with the third installment, ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III, which was previously recorded at the Singapore Indoor Stadium and airs this Friday, 13 November.

All the athletes competing on this card have a lot on the line, but two men will throw down with the hopes of cementing their spot as the top-ranked bantamweight contender.

Former ONE Bantamweight World Champion and #1-ranked contender Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon will take on #5-ranked contender John “Hands Of Stone” Lineker in the main event of the evening.

No matter the result, Belingon will extend his record for the most fights in ONE’s bantamweight division (19).

Belingon has also recorded the most knockout wins in ONE bantamweight history, and he would extend that all-time mark if he causes “Hands Of Stone” to crumble.

More importantly, “The Silencer” will be aiming to hold down his spot as the division’s #1-ranked contender. Doing so might give him the chance to rematch ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes once again.

Lineker, however, will look to relieve Belingon of his #1-spot and stake his claim to challenge Fernandes for the belt.

But if Lineker wants to enter his name into the record books at ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III, he’ll need a quick win over the Filipino. To date, the fastest knockout in ONE bantamweight history is six seconds, and the fastest submission is 27 seconds.

Regardless, this main event clash between two hard-hitting bantamweights will surely be entertaining. But who will end the night with their hand raised?

Tune in to the previously recorded ONE: INSIDE THE MATRIX III to find out.

Catch the action on meWATCH or the ONE Super App at 8:30 p.m. Singapore Standard Time (SGT). Also, Channel 5 will air the event on a next-day delay at 12:30 a.m. SGT on Saturday, 14 November.
