ONE Championship 2018: Beyond the Horizon.

ONE Championship 2018: Beyond the Horizon.

This Saturday, get ready for a fight. Current and first ever ONE Women’s Straw-weight Champion Xiong Jing Nan will be defending her title against current Brazilian Champion Samara Santos. With a flurry of fists, Xiong Jing Nan beats her opponents senseless, and once they’re on the ground she uses her superior wrestling, BJJ and ground-and-pound skills to go for the submission. She isn’t the only one in the ring with a strong striking game though. Samara Santos’ striking prowess and aggressive attack have won her 7 first round finishes to date, and if you think getting her to the ground will win the fight don’t be so sure since her ground game is nothing to be scoffed at. This should be a very good fight between two hard-as-nails strikers that will be very interesting to watch.

Amir Khan will be facing off against Honorio Banario. Amir Khan is a formidable fighter with precise punches and powerful kicks, both of which have knocked out opponents cold. He’s facing up against the comeback king Honorio Banario, who lost 4 times in a row only turn it around completely, currently, on a 5 streak win, he is looking to improve. Known as The Rock, his blows are crushing and his endurance without equal. Let’s see if Mr Khan can break this rock.

The last feature match will be Christian Lee vs Edward Kelly. Lee is a guy that viewers have seen growth every time he fights. He’s going to fight his toughest match yet against Edward Kelly, who despite his 7 first round finishes and 5 knock-out wins, hasn’t had the spotlight on him much until now that is. Will this be Edward Kelly’s chance to step into stardom, or will his momentum be broken by the underdog Christian Lee?
