Rising mixed martial arts fighter Lito Adiwang has been called anew to fight, this time against a  Vietnamese opponent, in the seventh edition of Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series (OWS) in Singapore Aug. 6.

Reports have it that Adiwang’s battle against Anthony Do, who is now based in the United States, will be the main event of OWS 7.

It will be the third appearance for the 25-year-old Adiwang in the OWS following his technical knockout victory against Alberto Correia in February.

The Team Lakay fighter first appeared in OWS in October 2018 with a knockout of Jose Manuel Huerta.

But the Igorot fighter has been with different MMA promotions since he turned professional fighter in February 2012. Adiwang now has eight wins and two losses.

His opponent, Do, will be making his debut on OWS after fighting for several MMA promotions in the world.

With seven wins and three losses, the 26-year-old Do has secured three consecutive wins in three different MMA promotions the past three years.

The Vietnamese fighter has nailed wins in Bellator, the second largest MMA promotions next to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and the Philippine-based Universal Reality Combat Championship.

A win by Adiwang against Do could possibly land the former with a hefty contract to fight in the ONE Championship, the largest sports media promotion in Asia.

The Rich Franklin ONE Warrior Series is a travel series talent search that aims to discover new martial arts talents across Asia, providing promising young athletes with the platform to unleash their martial arts greatness.

The most impressive performers had the potential to get slots to compete in professional bouts such as the ONE Championship and could earn a contract worth $100,000.
