ONE Championship™ (ONE), Asia’s largest global sports media property, returned Wednesday night with “ONE on TNT II,” a previously recorded event from the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The action-packed card featured a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest and four mixed martial arts fights, none of which reached the judges’ scorecards.
In the main event, reigning ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee put together another spectacular performance and finished #3-ranked lightweight contender Timofey Nastyukhin inside the first round.
Both fighters cautiously kept their distance early, showing respect for each other’s finishing abilities. Lee was first to engage, throwing a quick right hand and then shooting for a double-leg takedown. However, Nastyukhin was able to read the offence and defend against it.
But as Nastyukhin pushed forward with a combination, Lee caught him on the inside with a short left hand, visibly rocking the Russian. Sensing his opponent was hurt, Lee immediately jumped on Nastyukhin and rained down a barrage of punches to the head until the referee stopped the bout.
In the co-main event, ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion and #2-ranked atomweight Muay Thai contender Janet “JT” Todd scored an emphatic finish over #3-ranked contender Anne “Ninja” Line Hogstad in the third round of their ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest.
Todd came out firing in the opening frame, operating at a furious pace while making use of her speed advantage. As the bout wore on, she grew more comfortable mixing up her strikes. Hogstad tried to use her height and length, but Todd was able to read her opponent well. In the final round, Todd folded Hogstad with a crushing body kick to the liver, which forced the referee to halt the contest.
On the Bleacher Report lead card, Yoshiki Nakahara took a victory by disqualification over ONE Warrior Series product Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg due to an illegal kick to a grounded opponent’s head in the second round. In a flyweight mixed martial arts bout, “Little Whirlwind” Wang Shuo added to his win streak, knocking out Kim Kyu Sung with a spectacular elbow in the third and final round. And in a bantamweight clash that opened the show, Shuya “Stealth” Kamikubo forced ONE Championship newcomer Mitchell “Mama’s Boy” Chamale to tap out via second-round rear-naked choke.
