ONE Championship 92 results: Shinya Aoki is a champ
Aoki (43-8) caught lightweight champion Folayang (21-7) with an arm-triangle choke in the opening round. The win made Aoki ONE Championship’s 155-pound titleholder again in a rematch. Folayang landed a right hand 30 seconds into the first round, but Aoki stayed patient on the outside. Folayang landed a left, then worked inside leg kicks. A minute in, Aoki moved for a takedown and got clipped when he tried to change levels. But he survived it, clinched Folayang up, then eventually dragged him to the canvas.
Aoki passed to side control and got a D’Arce choke on tight. Folayang defended it properly, but it was just a matter of time before Folayang was out cold. Aoki jumped to the top of the fence to celebrate his new title.
