Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 11) — Martin Nguyen made history in ONE Championship after knocking out Filipino warrior Eduard Folayang in the main event of "Legends of the World" Friday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Australian boxer landed a quick powerful right hand punch which sent Folayang to the canvas at the 2:20 mark of the second round.
