MACAU--Eduard Folayang announced his return to the One Championship cage with a unanimous decision victory over Adrian Pang in One: Heroes of the World at the Cotai Arena on Saturday night.

Folayang pulled off his best performance under the Singaporean-based outfit so far, as the former URCC champ delivered haymakers one after the another against his tough opponent.

Folayang's Team Lakay stablemates Honorio Banario and Joshua Pacio also scored victories in their respective bouts with the latter scoring the more impressive win.

Pacio forced Thai opponent Kritsada Kongsrichai to tap out with only 23 seconds left in the very first round off a rear naked choke submission.

Banario, on the other hand, relied on his striking skills while showcasing anew his improved ground game to beat Eddie Ng via unanimous decision.

China's Ma Jia Wen prevented the Philippine contingent to One's first offering in Macau from scoring a 4-0 sweep after scoring a TKO win against Jimmy Yabo. The match was called at the 2:31 mark of the third round, where Yabo lost steam.

In the main event, Adriano Moraes took the interim One flyweight title after a rear naked choke submission win against late replacement Tilek Batyrov.

In another notable bout between foreigners, Martin Nguyen stunned Christian Lee after he put his opponent to sleep via a guillotine choke with 30 seconds to go in Round 1.
