ONE Championship has dished out exciting martial arts action throughout the first seven months of 2022, and the lineup for ONE 160: Ok vs. Lee II on 26 August looks to continue that trend.
The organization returns to the bright lights of the Singapore Indoor Stadium on that evening, and it promises to deliver from start to finish.
Here’s a breakdown of why ONE 160 will be unmissable when it goes down on 26 August.
A Heated Rematch
After a five-round banger, the combat sports world was sent reeling when the defending World Champion was handed a unanimous decision loss by the judges.
Lee has been most vocal with his opinions about the result over the last year, and he has been calling for a rematch since the decision was announced inside the Circle.
The Singaporean-American superstar finally gets his chance to reclaim the lightweight strap in the main event of ONE 160. But whether or not he’ll have what it takes to best his South Korean opponent remains to be seen.
The ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix Semifinals
The semifinals of the greatest Muay Thai tournament of the year kicks off on 26 August, with Thai dynamo Superlek “The Kicking Machine” Kiatmoo9 taking on Brazilian brawler Walter Goncalves for the first spot in the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix Championship Final.
Both fighters put on outstanding performances in the tournament's quarterfinals. "The Kicking Machine" lived up to his moniker by chopping down Taiki "Silent Sniper" Naito, while Goncalves knocked out Josue "Tuzo" Cruz with a flurry of punches after only 35 seconds.
