3 Exciting Battles That Could Steal The Show At ONE Fight Night 14 On Prime Video

ONE Fight Night 14: Stamp vs. Ham on Prime Video is set to deliver a lineup stacked full of enticing matchups this Friday, September 29.

The card is headlined by three Women’s World Title contests in three different sports, but first, a number of barnburners will prime the crowd in Singapore and those watching around the globe in U.S. primetime.

To get fans hyped for fight night, here are three exciting MMA and Muay Thai matchups that have the potential to produce fireworks and steal the show in “The Lion City.”

#1 John Lineker Vs. Stephen Loman

Former ONE Bantamweight MMA World Champion and current #1-ranked contender John “Hands of Stone” Lineker wants to earn another World Title shot in his clash with #2-ranked Stephen “The Sniper” Loman.

Lineker will pit his bludgeoning boxing game against the Filipino’s slick wushu-inspired tactics in a battle of strikers who bring knockout potential to the Circle.

“Hands of Stone” has blitzed his way to five victories in ONE, with four of those coming inside the distance courtesy of his concussive punches. Boasting 18 knockouts overall in his career, the Brazilian always enters with the sole intention of turning out his opponent’s lights. 

Meanwhile, Loman is 3-0 in ONE – owning an 11-bout winning streak overall – and showcased his finishing ability with a TKO win over Yusup Saadulaev in his debut.

The surging star has taken out two more elite contenders since then, blending his kickboxing with grappling to threaten his rivals in every range. 

“The Sniper” has the skills to match Lineker on the feet, but being able to withstand “Hands of Stone’s” power is another thing. However, Loman also has some tricks up his sleeve that could push the iconic veteran to his limit. 

#2 Dmitry Menshikov Vs. Rungrawee Sitsongpeenong

Recent ONE Lightweight Muay Thai World Title challenger Dmitry Menshikov could put himself back in the running for a shot at divisional king Regian Eersel with a win at ONE Fight Night 14 – but he’ll need to get past a fast-rising star.

The Russian entered ONE with 11 consecutive victories, including six stoppages. However, he didn’t get a chance to show his potential when he was caught cold by Eersel, so he’ll be desperate to prove he belongs among the best.

A win over Rungrawee Sitsongpeenong would help to do that, considering the Thai sensation’s current form.

The 27-year-old Sitsongpeenong representative has posted a perfect 3-0 slate since entering ONE in February, adding to his impressive unbeaten streak that dates back to 2018. In a division that Eersel has almost cleared out, another good showing could put Rungrawee at the front of the line.

With the stakes high in the lightweight Muay Thai ranks, Menshikov’s concussive punching power will be up against Rungrawee’s debilitating leg kicks in an entertaining clash of styles that both men will be eager to win. 

#3 Mauro Cerilli Vs. Paul Elliott

When it comes to edge-of-the-seat intensity, fans can’t look past the heavyweight mixed martial arts clash between Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli and Paul “King of the North” Elliott

The big men are only ever a split-second away from a fight-ending strike, and this colossal pair rarely rely on the judges. 

Cerilli has been to the scorecards just five times in 19 professional outings, while Elliott hasn’t gone longer than a round in his first six bouts. They have 13 knockout finishes between them, so win or lose, they’ll be swinging for the fences. 

Along with the likelihood of a big finish, the result could offer up some serious implications for the heavyweight MMA division. Cerilli and Elliott have only lost to the top dogs, and an impressive showing this Friday would open up opportunities to battle the elite once again.
