3 Bouts That Could Steal The Show At ONE Fight Night 16 On Prime Video

Lito Adiwang swings a cross at Jeremy Miado at ONE X: Part I

This Friday, November 3, fans will be treated to another massive martial arts card airing live in U.S. primetime to more than 190 countries across the globe.

ONE Fight Night 16: Haggerty vs. Andrade on Prime Video is topped by a pair of historic World Title bouts, but the rest of the lineup offers plenty of intriguing action, as well.

From a pivotal rematch between strawweight contenders to a heavyweight slugfest between dangerous finishers, here are three matchups that could steal the show at Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

#1 Jeremy Miado Vs. Lito Adiwang II

Filipino fan favorites Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado and Lito “Thunder Kid” Adiwang will settle their score in a strawweight MMA clash that could propel either man into the division’s top-five rankings.

The pair first met in March 2022 at ONE X. That contest was shaping up to be a fast-paced, unforgettable barnburner until Adiwang suffered a fight-ending knee injury midway through the second round.

That devastating ACL tear put “Thunder Kid” on the sidelines for 18 months, but he looked better than ever in his knockout return in September and is determined to exact revenge on Miado.

With a combined 86 percent finishing rate between them and each man looking to climb the strawweight MMA ladder, this rematch promises white-knuckle action for as long as it lasts.

#2 Meng Bo Vs. Ayaka Miura

Chinese knockout artist Meng Bo and Japanese submission specialist Ayaka Miura will square off in a classic striker-versus-grappler women’s strawweight MMA battle.

With three first-round finishes in ONE and currently riding a two-fight winning streak, Meng knows she could earn a crack at long-reigning divisional queen Xiong Jing Nan with another impressive performance.

But standing in her way is the judo powerhouse known as “Zombie.”

The 33-year-old Miura hopes to pick up her fifth submission victory in ONE, prove she can overcome one of the division’s most feared strikers, and earn another shot at Xiong’s golden belt.

Whether this fight takes place on the feet or the mat, a finish could be right around the corner, so fans won’t want to miss a second.

#3 Kang Ji Won Vs. Ben Tynan

Highly touted promotional newcomer Ben Tynan will be thrown into the deep waters of the heavyweight MMA division when he battles South Korean brawler Kang Ji Won.

Affectionately known as “Vanilla Thunder,” the 29-year-old is bringing an unblemished professional record, elite wrestling, and ruthless finishing instincts into the world’s largest martial arts organization. 

Tynan will be fired up to make a statement in Friday’s debut, but he’ll face a stiff test in Kang.

The 28-year-old “Mighty Warrior” has produced first-round knockouts in all six of his professional victories – including three in ONE – establishing himself as must-see TV and one of the heavyweight MMA division’s most devastating punchers.

Will the Canadian phenom live up to his lofty expectations, or will Kang score another electrifying knockout?
