De Ridder articulated his feelings on this unexpected opportunity to become a dual division champion, the mentality heading into this immediate rematch with reigning ONE light heavyweight world champion Aung La N Sang, the timeline for when he found out about this short notice bout, and so much more.

Aoki discussed his tiebreaker bout with Eduard Folayang in this consequential lightweight bout, adapting to the short notice switch in opponents after Sage Northcutt could no longer compete, where a win here puts him in the lightweight contendership hierarchy, and more.

Grishenko talked about the opportunity to compete inside the ONE Circle, the training methodology for fighting an individual like Reug Reug, his assessment of Oumar Kane as a martial artist as well as the prediction that he’ll finish Kane within the first couple of rounds.

Yoon fielded questions regarding fighting a lightweight legend like Eddie Alvarez, emerging victorious in his last outing against former long-reigning ONE world champion Marat Gafurov, his thoughts on the controversial Alvarez decision in his ONE on TNT I bout with Iuri Lapicus, plus a host of other topics.
