Three World Title bouts and a mixed rules superfight will headline the action inside the Impact Arena in Bangkok when ONE Championship sets sail on their 2023 campaign on Friday, January 13. ONE Fight Night 6 is now finalized after a couple of changes to the card. But the seven-bout lineup for Prime Video is loaded with explosive athletes ready to start the year hot.
ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Superbon Singha Mawynn will meet Chingiz Allazov in the main event, as previously announced. However, the following two title tilts have been shaken up. Ilias Ennahachi relinquished the ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Title after not being able to make the 135-pound limit while hydrated. In his place, Daniel Puertas will meet Superlek Kiatmoo9 for the vacant crown.
In the other title bout, ONE Flyweight Submission Grappling World Champion Mikey Musumeci will get a new sambo gold medalist to contend against. Sayan Khertek dropped out of the event after being injured, and 2022 Sambo World Champion Gantumur Bayanduuren has taken his place. This will mark Musumeci’s first title defense.
The atomweight mixed rules superfight between Anissa Meksen and Stamp Fairtex is sure to be one of 2023’s most intriguing matchups right out of the gate. The rounds will alternate between Muay Thai and mixed martial arts rules. Both women are eyeing gold in 2023, and a victory will help chart their path toward a huge year.

After Puertas moved up into the co-main event, Rodtang Jitmuangnon got himself another opponent for his flyweight kickboxing duel. Rodtang will now square off against Jiduo Yibu. After testing positive for COVID-19, Fan Rong also was removed from the event and has been replaced with Gilberto Gilvao against Aung La N Sang. That match will be contested at a catchweight of 215 pounds.
Opening the main card will be a featherweight showdown between Garry Tonon and Johnny Nunez. Tonon returns to mixed martial arts action for the first time since failing to capture the featherweight crown. Nunez will be hoping to jump right into contendership by knocking off the contender in his first bout in over three years.
Following the main card, two more bouts will air live on watch.onefc.com and YouTube. In a 150-pound catchweight bout, Kim Jae Woong will meet Shoko Sato. After that, a rematch between Anna Jaroonsak and Ekaterina Vandaryeva will take place following their controversial 2022 meeting. The nine bouts will kick off a jam-paced 2023 for ONE.
ONE Fight Night 6 airs live on Prime Video on Friday, January 13. The Impact Arena in Bangkok plays host to the incredible event. The show will begin at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST and is free for all Amazon Prime subscribers in the U.S. and Canada.
