Kevin Belingon and fast rising Stephen Loman are back in the octagon ring as they face tough opponents in the ONE on Prime Video 4 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kailang, Singapore on November 19.

The former ONE Bantamweight champion Belingon returns to the ring 11 months after his shock loss to Kwon Won Il and end a four game losing streak after winning the coveted crown in Nov. 9, 2018.

Belingon faces a tough Kim Jae Woong in a bantamweight showdown as one of the four co-main events in the ONE showvcase headlined by the fight between welterweight king Kiamram Abbasov and lightweight champion Christian Lee.

Fellow Team Lakay fighter Stephen Loman will also be in the co-main event where he faces former bantamweight king Bibiano Fernandes with whom Belingon fought a four series fight with the Brazilian coming on top 3-1.

Belingon lost in their first showdown but came back strong to win including the belt. But he lost in his first title defense after what was deemed a foul and was disqualified setting up a fourth match which Fernandes won.

 He then went on to record two more setbacks – against John Lineker on Oct. 30, 2020 and to Won due to a body shot forcing him to retire.

On the pther hand, Lineker went on to wrest the bantamweight belt from Fernandes but lost it on his supposed first title defense against Fabricio Andrade last October 21 during the ONE on Prime Video 3 after not meeting weight and thus stripped of the title.

One of the most feared fighter in his weight division, Belingon will be facing the hard hitting Korean who lost last month to newcomer Shamil Gasanov via submission.

Called “The Fighting God” has won three victories in the 155 pounds category including a knock out win over former two division champion Martin Nguyen – who was earlier beaten by Belingon.

Kim hopes to win against Belingon that will fortify his bid to be a main contender in the 145 pounds division.

Belingon is hoping to see Loman doing his best and beat the Brazilian long time bantamweight king.

He hopes also to see his younger stablemate take to heart what he has shared in fighting the Brazilian legend which could be the biggest fight yet in the ONE stage for Loman, who held the bantamweight title for the longest time in the Dubai-based Brave Championship before his move to ONE.

He last saw action last March 26 against Shoko Sato and earned a unanimous decision victory. Loman impressed during his ONE debut by beating the tough Yusuf Saadulaev.

Loman was supposed to face Lineker in April 28 of last year, five months after Belingon lost to the Brazilian, but had to withdraw due to his contracting the Covid-19 virus. Lineker beat Fernandes in December 3 last year to take the crown.

Meanwhile, the year ends for Team Lakay with Joshua Pacio defending his strawweight strap against American Jarred Brooks on December 3 with four other stablemates facing separate rivals.
