PARANAQUE--LA Lauron gets to fight at ONE Championship after all.

Lauron, a competitor in the ONE Warrior Series Philippines, stepped in at the 11th hour to face Jhanlo Sangiao at ONE 164 on Saturday night at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.

Lauron was formally introduced as Sangiao's new opponent on Wednesday night during the pre-fight press conference at The Theater at Solaire here, replacing Matias Farinelli, who was taken out of the card for undisclosed reasons.

This is some sort of a second chance for Lauron as his journey at the ONE Warrior Series was cut off after suffering a right arm injury that forced him to make a voluntary exit.

Six months after the reality show finished filming, Lauron now finds himself going inside the fabled ONE Circle, but he has to face the son of one of the reality show's trainers, Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao.

"I've been training hard since ONE Warrior Series, and I believe I'm ready for this," Lauron said, seemingly implying that he's 100 percent healthy again.

Already aware of his capabilities, the younger Sangiao said that he will carefully size up against Lauron.

"I will not underestimate this guy. This guy can do anything, but I'm here to fight," Jhanlo said.

However, while he is currently thinking about Sangiao, Lauron suddenly turned his attention to the eventual ONE Warrior Series winner, Adonis Sevilleno.

With the reality show win, Sevilleno earned a ONE Championship contract, whose effectivity begins with a showdown against fellow Filipino Drex Zamboanga also at ONE 164.

However, Lauron believes he was robbed of the win because of his injury.

"I know I deserve it more than Adonis," Lauron said.

He then issued a challenge at Sevilleno, saying, "After Jhanlo, I'm eyeing Adonis."
