ONE Championship’s “Inside The Matrix” continues with its third installment on Friday, November 13, with a bantamweight banger leading the way.

John Lineker will meet Kevin Belingon in the main event of ONE: Inside The Matrix III with huge implications on the ONE Bantamweight World Championship picture.

The Filipino is the former king of the division, but he dropped the belt back to Bibiano Fernandes last year and is attempting to earn a fifth bout against his long-time rival. But Lineker’s inclusion into the ONE scene will be a giant hurdle to continuing his series with Fernandes.

Lineker made a splash in his ONE debut with a unanimous decision victory over Muin Gafurov last October at ONE: Dawn Of Valor. If he can topple the former champ, will he be in-line for a shot at the gold?

Also in action, two-time ADCC World Champion Yuri Simoes will make his ONE debut against Fan Rong. Simoes has all of the credentials to make a quick rise in the middleweight division that has been turned upside down with Reinier De Ridder’s upset victory at ONE: Inside The Matrix two weeks ago.

Fans can also expect all-out action from Lito Adiwang vs. Hiroba Minowa.

Adiwang, known as “Thunder Kid,” has looked incredible since joining the main roster after a successful stint on the ONE Warrior Series. He has posted two first-round victories in his first two main roster contests and will try to keep it going against the streaking 21-year-old Minowa.

The five-bout card has all of the makings to continue the streak of incredibly exciting events for ONE, and it will air for free on the B/R Live app on Friday, November 13, at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST.
