ONE Championship A New Era. 
A main event that rock Japan! Ending perfectly with Japan’s MMA icon Shinya Aoki 青木真也 winning back the lightweight belt he lost to Eduard Folayang in Nov 2016. It was also a horrible year for Shinya in 2017 as he lost twice. Once to Gary Tonon in a grappling match and then to Ben Askren.
2018 was a resurgence year for this veteran of more than 50 mma bouts. He took on the best lightweight in ONE and won 3 in a row. All in the first round. 
Tonight as ONE Championship held it’s grand debut in Japan, Shinya capped it off with a stellar win, an arm triangle choke over Eduard in round 1 to ensure Japanese fans have a great reason to celebrate.
