ONE Championship returns to Singapore Indoor Stadium tonight for ONE Fight Night 14. The event brings the promotion back to U.S. primetime on Prime Video. And at the top of the bill are three thrilling title tilts.
Stamp Fairtex headlines the night against Ham Seo Hee for the ONE Interim Atomweight MMA World Championship. But prior to the main event, Smilla Sundell defends the ONE Women’s Strawweight Muay Thai World Title against Allycia Hellen Rodrigues, and Jessa Khan battles Danielle Kelly for the inaugural ONE Atomweight Submission Grappling World Championship. But what else is there to enjoy tonight?
3 Must Watch Fights at ONE Fight Night 14
Putting the must-see title tilts aside, it is worth looking down the card for the other incredible bouts. ONE Fight Night 14 offers an exciting lineup from top to bottom. These are three fights you absolutely cannot miss when ONE returns to Prime Video.
Xiong Jing Nan vs. Wondergirl
While the allure of gold may draw your eyes to the three World Title bouts at the top of the card, the special-rules striking contest certainly deserves your attention. Xiong Jing Nan and Nat “Wondergirl” Jaroonsak will throw down in four-ounce gloves, with only punches being allowed. The strawweight showdown will be intriguing to watch as ONE continues pushing the sport’s boundaries.
Additionally, the outcome could have enormous implications for the strawweight division. “The Panda” has reigned over the division since 2018. Wondergirl’s transition into MMA is just beginning, and a victory over Xiong would instantly boost her appeal as a future challenger.
Witnessing this new striking format with two exceptional talents will be exciting. Given their aggressive styles, fans should expect a fast-paced matchup when the bell rings and neither woman to back away. This special rules matchup will be pure fun and could set the stage for bigger future bouts utilizing the rule set.
John Lineker vs. Stephen Loman
Title implications are high in the bantamweight division as top-ranked contenders John Lineker and Stephen Loman go toe-to-toe before the evening’s four premier matchups. Lineker defeated Kim Jae Woong to put himself back within earshot of the title. However, Loman’s destruction of Bibiano Fernandes has many thinking he is the division’s future.
If Loman can put away Lineker, he is the unquestioned top contender to Fabricio Andrade and the ONE Bantamweight MMA World Championship. It will also signal a true changing of the guard. His spot atop the division’s rankings will be undeniable.
However, Lineker is not done and desperately wants the rematch with his fellow Brazilian. As a fan-favorite, who wouldn’t want to see the “Hands of Stone” redemption arc? The story of this matchup makes it even more enticing than the rib-rocking action is expected to be when the bell rings.
Asa Ten Pow vs. Rambolek
Flying under the radar is a bantamweight Muay Thai matchup that the U.S. audience should be interested to watch. American Asa Ten Pow returns to take on Rambolek Chor Ajalaboon. Can Ten Pow show the might of American Muay Thai?
Perhaps even more important than that, Ten Pow has his eyes set on the same goal as Stamp — to become a three-sport World Champion. The 33-year-old already feels he is ready to challenge for kickboxing gold, feels he could shoot up the MMA ranks quickly, and is coming off a Muay Thai win. If he puts on a show in Singapore, who is to say he can’t accomplish those feats in 2024?
Aside from keeping tabs on the American, Rambolek will make sure this is a fun scrap one way or the other. The Thai talent has had nothing but exciting bouts on the ONE Friday Fights series. This will be an electrifying contest no matter who wins, but the domestic rooting interest should make sure U.S. fans highlight this one on the docket.
ONE Fight Night 14 airs live tonight from Singapore. The action begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Prime Video. The event is free for all Amazon Prime members based in the U.S. and Canada.
