Kelly aims for mixed-martial arts spotlight


Filipino fighter Edward Kelly gets his chance at earning a world title contender status when he faces former world featherweight champion Narantungalag “Tungaa” Jadambaa on June 23 in the undercard of ONE: Pinnacle of Power at the Studio City Event Center in Macau, China.
This will be Kelly’s second outing under the ONE Championship banner this year.
The 34-year-old Baguio City fighter is eyeing a follow-up to his 21-second knockout win over Cambodia’s Meas Meul last January.
Right at the opening bell, Kelly engaged Meul at the center of the cage and connected on a quick three-punch combination before unleashing the final blow that sent Meul face first into the canvas.
Kelly now owns both the fastest knockout and finish in ONE Championship’s featherweight division, with the scorching stoppage going viral around the world.
“I am a martial artist who always looks for the finish. As much as possible, I want to give the fans what they want. They came and bought a ticket for an action-packed bout with an amazing conclusion,” Kelly said.
