"He's a phenomenal athlete and I just see him powering through the division," Franklin said of Adiwang.

"He still has much to learn but he's also developing at such a rapid pace. I'm really proud of what he's accomplished so far and very excited for what the future holds for him."

Adiwang brings with him a unique adrenaline rush with his fan-friendly style whenever he comes to compete. He is blazing a trail through ONE Championship's strawweight division under the guidance of Team Lakay founder and head coach Mark Sangiao.

So far, the Igorot MMA fighter is unbeaten in his ONE Championship stint. Gaining his start in ONE Warrior Series, he did shine as he won his first three bouts under the watchful eye of Franklin.
