Coming from Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand, here are five reasons you should tune in.
We start the year with not one, but two kickboxing title fights. Headlining the card, Superbon Singha Mawynn, World Featherweight Kickboxing Champion, defends his belt against ONE, World Featherweight Kickboxing Champion Chingiz Allazov in a breathtaking duel of champions. The co-main event will crown a new champion when Thai star Superlek Kiatmoo9 takes on Spanish sensation Daniel Puertas for the vacant ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title. Two fights, two titles at stake – and something not to be missed.
A chance to see Mikey Musumeci
If you saw Mikey Musumeci away from the world of fighting you would be excused if you thought he was the last person you would see in martial arts. Even if he looks more like he’d fit better in a classroom than a gym, make no mistake – Musumeci is the elite of the elite. With his ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling World Championship on the line this weekend, fans can expect another clinic from the incredible American. He will face a tough test, however, in the form of Combat Sambo World Champion Gantumur Bayanduuren – who will not only catch up on the numbers, but will do whatever it takes to go with the gold.
A women’s fight for eternity
The Mixed Rules Atomweight Clash between Stamp Fairtex and Anissa Meksen would become a classic. Mixed rules mean the four round bout alternates between Muay Thai and MMA rules in a unique spectacle never before seen in women’s combat. Fairtex is World Grand Prix Champion in Atomic Weight and former World Champion in Kickboxing and Muay Thai. Opposite her is the Franco-Algerian Meksen, who can justifiably claim to be one of the best strikers in the world. Don’t miss this.
A deep card
There are top talents and exciting fights all over the map. Outside of the three title bouts, keep an eye out for former two-weight world champion Aung La N Sang, Muay Thai warrior Rodtang and legend Garry Tonon, all in action.
A tribute to Victoria Lee
The MMA world was stunned this week by the loss of Victoria Lee. The sister of ONE champions Angela and Christian passed away at the age of just 18. This is the first event since the announcement of her death and gives fight fans around the world a chance to come together and remember one of the sport’s brightest young talents.
