The latest event from ONE Championship transpires on Friday, September 3rd from Singapore Indoor Stadium. These are your ONE: Empower results.
This is a history-making event as ONE will be showcasing an all-women combat sports extravaganza here.
Topping the marquee, long-reigning strawweight queen Xiong Jingnan looks to notch the fifth defense of her belt. To do this, she will need to get through decorated multi-time Jiu-Jitsu champion Michelle Nicolini.
The ONE Circle also brings together some of the world’s best Atomweights for the long-awaited ONE Atomweight Grand Prix. This tournament is finally coming to fruition and the quarter-final bouts are all compelling in their own way.
Who advances to the semi-finals? Unbeaten Denice Zamboanga vs someone regarded by many as the world’s top Atomweight in Seo Hee Ham. Alyona Rassohyna vs Stamp Fairtex in a highly consequential rematch.
Plus, who wins between the streaking decorated veteran Meng Bo vs dominant wrestler The Indian Tigress Ritu Phogat, and the undefeated Itsuki Hirata vs Invicta FC vet/ ONE debutant Alyse Anderson?
Mei Yamaguchi vs Julie Mezabarba functions as the alternate bout for the Grand Prix. The winner here could enter the tournament field pending if a tournament fighter needs to pull out.
ONE Championship is largely putting on mixed martial arts bouts here. But the ONE Super Series action will be getting some love too. A pair of fights in both the Muay Thai and Kickboxing ranks take place. Prizefights that will surely keep ardent fans of the stand-up arts happy.
