Filipino Kingad puts win streak on the line against Hexigetu in ONE
Filipino wushu artist Danny Kingad is putting his unbeaten record on the line as he faces Mongol fighter Hexigetu Hexigetu in ONE Championship: Conquest of Kings in Surabaya, Indonesia.
Kingad, who owns a 5-0 MMA record, 3-0 in ONE, hails from the famed Team Lakay that produced ONE Lightweight champion Eduard Folayang.
The flyweight fighter stopped two of his three opponents in the promotion with his last foe, Muhammad Aiman, the lone matchup to hear the final bell during the ONE: Kings of Destiny last April.
Looking to break Kingad’s streak is Hexigetu (4-2), who will be making his debut in the Asian fighting promotion.
Reigning ONE Championship flyweight champion Kairat Akhmetov (20-0-0) will face interim champion Adriano Moraes (15-2) in a unification bout for the main event of the Surabaya card.
