Staff picks are in for the first of three events this weekend. ONE Championship: Master of Destiny takes place Friday morning from the Axiata Arena. The card is headlined by a kickboxing bout between Giorgio Petrosyan and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy. For MMA purposes, the main fight on the card is a strawweight battle between Angela Lee and Michelle Nicolini.


Throughout the year, staff picks will be composed of four different MMA promotions: UFCBellatorONE, and RIZIN. Main cards will make up both UFC and Bellator picks, while the biggest fights to make up ONE and RIZIN events will be used. The WINNER of staff picks will have a choice between receiving a championship belt from ProAmBelts or a championship chain from Championship Chains. The 2018 winner was awarded to Michael DeSantis, compiling a record of 202-101.
