TOKYO, Japan–It took more than two years for Shinya Aoki to get his shot at regaining the ONE lightweight world title.

Aoki had his chance on Sunday night in front of his hometown crowd at the iconic Ryogoku Kokugikan in a rematch against the man who took it from him in Eduard Folayang.

He needed less than three minutes to win it back.

Aoki took down Folayang then, put the Filipino superstar to sleep with an arm triangle choke at the 2:34 mark of the opening round in the main event of ONE: A New Era.
