ONE 162 will air live in the morning with the vacant ONE Strawweight Kickboxing World Championship up for grabs between Zhang Peimian and Jonathan Di Bella. The Canadian-Italian will be making his promotional debut against Zhang, who has back-to-back wins inside the Circle. The five-round bout will bring out the best of the two fast-paced strikers.
The undercard will see plenty of familiar faces take to the Circle. Former ONE Strawweight World Champion Alex Silva takes on Gustavo Balart, Reece McLaren defends his #5 position in the flyweight rankings against Windson Ramos, and Nieky Holzken battles Islam Murtazaev. The nine-bout event will set the stage for ONE’s return to U.S. primetime later that evening.
When the bright lights shine down on Prime Video, fans will be treated to one of the best matchups left on the 2022 calendar. ONE Bantamweight World Champion John Lineker will be tested by his fellow countryman, Fabricio Andrade, in the night’s main event. Andrade has been spectacular since arriving in ONE and finally gets his shot at the gold. After repeated callouts and social media jabs, “Wonder Boy” gets his wish to compete against the division’s king.
Three additional title tilts help bolster the card. In the co-main event, ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion Regian Eersel meets Sinsamut Klinmee for the inaugural ONE Lightweight Muay Thai World Title. Kade Ruotolo and Uali Kurzhev will collide in the featured lead card contest for the inaugural ONE Lightweight Submission Grappling World Title. Also on the bill, Superlek Kiatmoo9 and Panpayak Jitmuangnon battle one more time in the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix final to see who takes home the tournament crown.
Plenty more action rounds out the events, making Friday, October 21, a day full of martial arts excitement for fans across the globe. ONE 162 airs live and free on watch.onefc.com at 7 a.m. EST/4 a.m. PST. Later in U.S. primetime, ONE on Prime Video 3 kicks off at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST.
