ONE Championship Conquest of Champions Results: Vera Defends, Folayang Reclaims Lightweight Belt
On Friday, Nov. 23, ONE Championship held its 85th event from the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, dubbed Conquest of Champions.
In the evening’s main event, heavyweight titleholder Brandon Vera made quick work of Italy’s Mauro Cerilli. The former UFC fighter defended his belt for the second time with the first-round knockout victory.
In the co-headliner, Eduard Folayang reclaimed the ONE lightweight championship with a victory over Amir Khan. Folayang previously lost the belt to two-division champion Martin Nguyen. However, Nguyen vacated the belt due to inactivity at lightweight following multiple attempts to win a third division title.
