One Championship’s Pride of Lions

The synergy between Mah Pte Ltd and ONE Championship continues as the Singapore’s premier motorcycle dealership is once again the official motorcycle sponsor of the One Championship’s Pride of Lions MMA event held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Greeting the fans at the VIP main entrance were an assortment of the best bikes and brands that Singapore’s motorcycling market has to offer, namely the biggest, darkest and most powerful Triumph, Victory and Indian motorcycles on the island.

Spotted at ringside was the Singapore debut of the 2015/2016 Indian Motorcycle Dark Horse, all blacked-out from warbonnet to rear fender – the perfect harbinger of the fight night’s aggression, danger and gloom.


A damper in the works awaited the fans at the ONE Championship’s Pride of Lions as main-event challenger Brazilian Luis Santos, whose last fight with current ONE Welterweight World Champion Ben Askren ended in a ‘no contest’ decision due to an eye poke, opted to excuse himself from the night’s main event by routinely failing to make weight the night before and avoiding the second weigh-in opportunity.

An infuriated Askren spoke harshly of his opponent during the press session, accusing the Brazilian of unprofessional behaviour, “Everyone could see him (Santos) stuffing himself with food for an hour before the weigh-in… as well as giving a ton of excuses when he requested for a medical checkup. The doctor found nothing wrong with him and he even requested for an MRI scan which the doctor flatly refused! I am truly disappointed that I cannot settle the unfinished business I have with Santos from our last bout and I feel for the fans as well.”


The night truly belonged to the pride of lions as all three participating Singapore MMA fighters Benedict Ang, Amir Khan and Angela Lee won their respective fights in convincing fashion that evening. All three fighters hail from the Evolve MMA team.


Benedict Ang, who made his pro debut at the age of 19 with a win over fellow Singaporean Waqar Umar at the ONE: Warrior’s Quest fight, finished off his latest opponent Yohan Legowo in the second round with a corner stoppage call from the Indonesian. Featherweight fighter Legowo was unable to withstand the aggressive pace and relentless kicks, knees and punches from the much younger Ang.


Fellow Singaporean featherweight Amir faced-off Filipino kickboxer Jimmy Yabo in the next fight. The 21-year-old was able to pin Yabo on the ground late in the first round and finished off the fighter with a barrage of overhead fist punches and elbows, leading to an eventual tap out.


The final victorious lioness of the night was 19-year-old Angela Lee, who capped off a perfect night for the Singapore crowd with her third straight win by submission in the strawweight category. Her opponent Natalie Gonzales Hills was aggressive and strong from the start and Lee looked to be a trouble from the brute strength of the Filipino’s attacks. Lee was able to gain the upper hand via a reverse move after her opponent had her pinned down and won the fight with a twister submission move midway into the first round.
