Cordillera - Former ONE Championship featherweight champion Honorio Banario of Team Lakay will be representing the Philippines in kickboxing sport in the upcoming Southeast Asia Games in Vietnam.

Banario is hoping to bring to the country a gold medal although he admitted kickboxing is much different to Mixed Martial Arts where he excel.

"The training is different here for the SEA Games. The mentality is different. Here, you need speed and volume. I hope that I will bring glory to the Philippines," Banario said via Team Lakay official FB page. 

The former One Featherweight World Champion entered the world of martials arts at the age of 16 to help him overcome his low self-esteem and prevent him from vice. 

Banario started his career in MMA when he earned wushu scholarship at the Cordillera Career Development College in La Trinidad. 

During that time, he won numerous wushu tournaments until he was invited by coach Mark Sangiao to join Team Lakay to improve his skills in Mixed Martial Arts. 

Entering Team Lakay was a right decision for Banario as he won his first six bouts in his early career. That opened him an opportunity to fight under ONE Championship promotion and during the process he has scored the biggest win of his career when he dethroned undefeated Eric Kelly. 

Defeating Kelly in the fourth round helped him become the inaugural ONE Featherweight World Champion.
