ONE on TNT II Preview
Nastyukhin claimed his title bid with impressive back-to-back victories inside the ONE Circle. The Russian gave a rude welcome to Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez at ONE: A New Era before he returned against lightweight contender Pieter Buist and won a unanimous decision.
But the champion has been on a roll.
Lee took the ONE Lightweight World Title from Shinya Aoki by knockout before entering the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix on short notice. In the final, Lee controlled Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev for 15 minutes to claim the title.
In his first official title defense, Lee took out Iuri Lapicus in the first round. Now Lee meets one of the few lightweights he has yet to defeat. In a quest to clear the division in its totality, the United MMA star will have to shine in primetime.
In the second main card bout, ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion Janet “JT” Todd will bring ONE Super Series action to the masses in a key Muay Thai bout against Anne “Ninja” Line Hogstad.
The American put on a show in her last outing opposite Alma Juniku and will try to lay claim to being the next title contender as she tries to become a two-sport World Champion.
The preliminary card features three exciting mixed martial arts matches.
Bantamweights Mitchell Chamale and Shuya Kamikubo kick-off the action before Kim Kyu Sung and Wang Shuo enter for their flyweight meeting.
In the featured prelim bout, featherweights Shinechagtga Zoltsetseg battles Yoshiki Nakahara.
ONE on TNT II promises to be another exciting card in ONE’s extraordinary month on the primetime stage.
