Harold Banario Of Team Lakay Makes Successful Comeback With Impressive Submission Victory

Harold Banario, a young prospect who fights under the Team Lakay banner, has been inactive for nearly four years. His last mixed martial arts fight was way back in June of 2015 where he was knocked out by Mark Abelardo in the second round.

Tonight at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Banario redeemed himself with an impressive victory over Ariel Oliveros with a submission in the very first round.

Banario and Oliveros locked horns in the undercard of a Brave Combat Federation event dubbed Storm of Warriors. Banario entered the cage with a record of 4 wins and 1 loss. His opponent Oliveros had a record of 3 wins and 3 losses.

Banario surprised Oliveros by going for a takedown right off the bat. Banario got the takedown and quickly went to work on a leg lock. Oliveros tapped seconds later.

This is Banario's debut in the Brave Combat Federation promotion. He is the younger brother of Honorio Banario, another Team Lakay standout who fights for One Championship.
