MANILA--Lito Adiwang put up an impressive striking clinic and dominated Chinese opponent Hexigetu in the final match of the ONE: Revolution lead card on Friday night at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Adiwang opened the showdown with a flurry, connecting on two flying knees and a series of punches to stagger Hexigetu.

Adiwang also showed superb takedown defense by preventing all of Hexigetu's three chances to bring the game to the ground.

Worse for Hexigetu, he was slapped with two yellow cards after accidentally connecting on low blows to Adiwang, highlighting an off night for the Chinese fighter.

Despite action slowing down following the low blows, Adiwang's superb striking game proved to be enough to secure the unanimous decision victory.

Adiwang has reestablished a winning run with his second straight victory, but dating back to 2016, he has already won nine of his last 10 bouts even as he moved up to 13-3 overall.

Hexigetu, on the other hand, fell to 9-4 even as he saw his winning streak snapped at three.
