ONE Championship is bringing female star power to International Women’s Day on Friday, March 8. With two female-led main events already at the top of the marquee for ONE Fight Night 20, ONE revealed four additional bouts to the lineup. The event will air free on Prime Video and showcase the talented women in martial arts.

After an incredible show in ONE’s U.S. debut against Diandra Martin, Jackie Buntan will return to try and get one step closer to another shot at the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Championship. Standing in her way in Bangkok will be Martine Michieletto. The two will go toe-to-toe in a 130-pound catchweight contest.

While Buntan draws most of the attention, Michieletto shined in her ONE debut last June. The Italian bested Amber Kitchen over three rounds. If she can knock off Buntan, the 31-year-old would be poised to take control of her own destiny.

Martyna Kierczynska made an impactful debut at ONE Fight Night 19 by demolishing Nat “Wondergirl” Jaroonsak. The dazzling performance earned her a quick turnaround in March. The Polish striker will meet Ekaterina “Barbie” Vandaryeva in a strawweight slugfest.  

Lara “Pizza Power” Fernandez returns to square off against Yu Yau Pui in an atomweight Muay Thai bout. Yu has looked outstanding on ONE Friday Fights with a perfect 5-0 record, but now steps up to the global stage to try and keep her streak going. Fernandez will be motivated to get back in the win column by attempting to turn the Chinese star away.

MMA action will not be left off the table. In atomweight action, Jihin “Shadow Cat” Radzuan takes on Chihiro Sawada. “Shadow Cat” got back to her winning ways with a thrilling submission win over Jenelyn Olsim last September and looks to keep it going as Sawada makes her move into U.S. primetime.

ONE Fight Night 20 airs live on Friday, March 8. The action begins at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST. The event is free for all Amazon Prime subscribers based in the U.S. and Canada.
