Edward "THE FEROCIOUS" Kelly made sure to make the hometown crowd proud after raining hits on his South Korean opponent Sung Jong Lee to win a second-round TKO in ONE: Roots of Honor, at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on Friday.
The official stoppage came in at the 2:51 mark of the second round.
Kelly survived a multitude of submission attempts from the Korean to pick up the TKO win in their featherweight bout.
Kelly was aggressive right from the start, focusing on his striking against his grappling specialist opponent. Despite being caught in a leglock, the Team Lakay member was able to hold on and punch his way to victory.
The 35-year-old Kelly split the fight card with his older brother Eric, who unfortunately had his sixth straight loss earlier that evening.
Edward gave Team Lakay their first victory of the night. Kelly improves to 12-6 as he bounces back from his most recent loss to Christian Lee.
