Coach surprised by Kevin Belingon's quick KO win over McLaren

Team Lakay coach Mark Sangiao admitted he did not expect the bantamweight clash between his ward Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon and Fil-Aussie Reece McLaren to end quickly.

Belingon finished McLaren just 62 seconds into the first round after he toppled McLaren with a counter right hook in the main card of ONE: Quest for Greatness in Kuala Lumpur over the weekend.

“Ang talagang game plan namin doon ay makipag-striking,” said Sangiao, a former MMA fighter himself.

“Ang alam namin lalaruin ni McLaren iyong parang ginawa niya kay Muin (Gafurov),” added the Team Lakay coach, referring to McLaren’s decision win against Gafurov in 2016.

McLaren, a former ONE bantamweight title contender, was able to hammer a unanimous decision win over Gafurov by tricking the Tajik into a striking match before bringing the bout to the ground.

“Ang maganda sa naging laban naming, sumabay (si McLaren) sa striking at nahuli siya ni Kevin,” said Sangiao.
