ONE 160: Ok vs. Lee 2
ONE 160 will feature a ONE Lightweight World Championship showdown in its main event. Former titleholder “The Warrior” Christian Lee is on a mission to recapture his lost crown. Ok Rae Yoon, of South Korea, took the title from Lee when these two fought in 2021 at ONE Revolution . It was a close and exciting fight, however, and Lee believes the wrong man was chosen by the judges.
Getting ready for this fight, the Singaporean-American says that he has trained much better for this match. In the pre-fight press conference, he said, “My preparation for this fight is very different than my last one. I had a much better training camp. I trained a lot longer. I trained a lot harder. And I feel that I’m a much better fighter today than I was heading into the last fight.”
ONE Lightweight World Champion Ok Rae Yoon will look to defend his coveted title. In the leadup to this fight, he said, “I’m just here to just conclude any controversy. Therefore, even with five rounds, I don’t really care what it takes — knockout or submission or the decision from the judges and the panels — I will show that I’m more dominant and that there will be no controversies in this fight.”

The co-main event of ONE 160 will be a battle between two knockout kings. The US-born athlete Thanh Le will look to defend his ONE Featherweight World Championship against China’s Tang Kai. Both of these top-ranked fighters are entering this bout on knockout win streaks. Thanh Le expressed much respect toward his opponent. In the pre-fight press conference, he said, “He’s a very good fighter. I think we’re going to see a better version of me in there. And I think that’s what matters the most to me and my team. So no matter what the outcome is, I’m going to go out there, I’m going to fight until my hands fall off. I’m never going to quit, and we’re going to see what happens in the end.”
Tang Kai, of China, will look to capture the ONE Featherweight World Title by any means necessary. In an interview, he explained, “He’s the champion right now. And he, of course, is looking down on me. But no matter how, we will see the result on the stage and I will beat him down. [This is] not trash talk. [This is] from the bottom of my heart. Get ready. I’m going to beat Thanh Le.”
This ONE Championship fight event will also feature Muay Thai with Rittewada Petchyindee vs. Saemapetch Fairtex, submission grappling featuring Tommy Langaker vs. Renato Canuto, plenty of MMA action including Amir Khan vs. Keanu Subba, and much more.
