Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang is gearing up for an electrifying showdown against "Mini T" Danial Williams on February 16 at ONE Fight Night 19: Haggerty vs. Lobo, set to unfold at Bangkok's renowned Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. Adiwang, a skilled wushu stylist boasting eight highlight-reel knockouts, aims to make his mark in the crowded strawweight MMA rankings during this pivotal clash, which will be aired on Prime Video in U.S. primetime.

Adiwang, known for his striking prowess, anticipates a fierce battle and plans to showcase his skills for the Thai fans in attendance. With aspirations to establish himself as one of the best strikers in mixed martial arts, Adiwang acknowledges the challenge presented by Williams, a former WMC Muay Thai World Champion.

The Filipino star emphasized, "We all know Danial always shows up to fight. I want to prove that I belong on the list of the best strikers in the world." Despite Williams' extensive experience against top strikers, Adiwang is confident that his unique style will pose a challenge that his opponent hasn't encountered before.

While Williams is renowned for his stand-up artistry, Adiwang remains unfazed, asserting, "I believe styles make fights. I have a lot of things to offer that he hasn’t seen yet, and I know that’s my key to victory."

Anticipating a finish within the first 10 minutes, Adiwang aims to secure victory via KO or submission, vowing to provide unforgettable action. He is determined to extend his winning streak since returning from injury and position himself for a potential title shot in the fiercely competitive ONE Strawweight MMA division.

As the division heats up with notable contenders like Jarred "The Monkey God" Brooks defending his belt on March 1 at ONE 166: Qatar, Adiwang has his sights set on elite matchups. He envisions challenging for the belt by the end of the year, expressing a singular focus on securing a World Title shot.

"I believe with this win I can get to the top five, but actually, whether I get in or not, my mentality would always be to smash the next contender and keep winning. For me, being in the top five doesn’t excite me. The only thing that excites me is winning and getting that title shot. That’s what will excite me," concluded the 30-year-old Filipino fighter.
