MANILA, Philippines—Philippines’ Gina Iniong got her third win in four bouts after scoring a unanimous decision win over Asha Roka of India in the undercard of ONE: Fire and Fury Friday at Mall of Asia Arena.

Team Lakay’s atomweight stalwart used her wrestling to take control of Roka, a fighter renowned for her striking.

Iniong (9-4) sent Roka to the mat at the start of the first round and employed a similar game plan until the end of the second round where she nearly locked in a guillotine choke that Roka (4-2) managed to prevent.

“I’m happy with the fight even though I wasn’t able to finish it with a submission,” said Iniong, who won the Southeast Asian Games gold medal in kickboxing last December.

Iniong was coming off a split decision win over Hayatun Jihin Radzuan. Her lone loss in her past four fights was against Istela Nunes.
