Team Lakay settled for a split against Singapore’s Evolve MMA in ONE Championship’s Beyond the Horizon card Saturday at Baoshan Arena in Shanghai, China.

Edward Kelly managed to get the win against Christian Lee in their featherweight bout after the Singaporean was called for an illegal suplex 2:19 into the fight.

Lee (9-3) performed an illegal spike with Kelly (11-5) landing on his head.


The move prompted referee Olivier Coste to penalize Lee with a red card after Kelly was unable to continue for the remainder of the fight.

Honorio Banario didn’t have the same fate as his teammate after he lost to Amir Khan via submission.

Khan (11-3) got hold of Banario (13-7) and put the former ONE featherweight champion in a rear-naked choke earning the submission win 4:34 into first round.

The loss snapped Banario’s five-fight winning streak dating back to April of 2016.
