ONE on TNT II Media day took place virtually and both main event participants were there.
The promotion is coming off of a hotly discussed debut on the network and now ONE on TNT’s sophomore installment will soon be upon us.
ONE Championship athletes Christian Lee and Timofey Nastyukhin took part in a Q&A session prior to the ballyhooed ONE on TNT II. This previously recorded card emanated from the Singapore Indoor Stadium and airs on Wedesday, April 14th.

Lee is the reigning ONE Lightweight World Champion and readies to defend his gold. Conversely, Nastyukhin is the #3-ranked lightweight contender ahead of this title bid. The pair top the marquee of ONE on TNT II with the winner emerging as the promotion’s lightweight champion.
Lee talked about his thoughts on Nastyukhin being his toughest challenge to date, his assessment of Timofey Nastyukhin’s win over Eddie Alvarez, and Nastyukhin’s skill set as a martial artist.
Plus, Christian Lee also talks about how he’s not in the pressure position leading into this prizefight, how being a father changes things for a mixed martial artist, and if he foresees a return to the featherweight ranks.

Plus, Timofey Nastyukhin discussed some of the adaptations needed for training amid a global pandemic, the deciding factor in this title bout, who has the best fighting style in the ONE Circle, and more.
