This Friday, October 21, a trio of athletes will earn golden belts in mixed martial arts, Muay Thai, and submission grappling.
Those World Title showdowns are headlining ONE on Prime Video 3 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, but the nine-fight card also includes plenty of other exciting matchups.
From top to bottom, the event is stacked with guaranteed bangers and high-stakes battles, featuring up-and-coming phenoms, respected veterans, and fan-favorite action fighters.
Simply put, there is something for everyone.
With that said, here are three bouts that could end up stealing the show in North American primetime.
Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong vs. Mohammed Boutasaa
The second fight on the main card is a featherweight kickboxing battle that has the makings of an unforgettable war between a storied legend and a rising phenom.
Eight-time Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Sitthichai “Killer Kid” Sitsongpeenong is one of the greatest strikers of this generation and was long considered a top pound-for-pound fighter.
On Friday, the 31-year-old will face undefeated, hard-charging Moroccan sensation Mohammed Boutasaa in a clash where both athletes have something to prove.
Coming off a decision loss to rival Chingiz Allazov in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Championship Final, #4-ranked contender Sitthichai is looking to reassert himself as a World Title threat and show that he still has plenty of gas left in the tank.
Meanwhile, Boutasaa is hoping to knock off an icon, extend his pristine 15-0 record, and prove that at just 23 years old, he is ready for the best stand-up artists on the planet.
Jeremy Miado vs. Danial Williams
The lead card is sure to finish with a bang, as two of the world’s most exciting strawweight MMA strikers will clash in a showdown for a coveted spot in the divisional rankings.
Jeremy Miado and #5 contender Danial Williams are both looking to make it four wins in a row. And if history is any indication, fans can expect to see fireworks on the feet for as long as it lasts – and it might not last long.
The two sluggers own a combined 70 percent finishing rate, and both are known for their blazing-fast hands, furious pacing, and never-say-die durability.
This bout has “Fight of the Year” contender written all over it, with former WMC Muay Thai World Champion Williams aiming to make a run toward MMA gold and former #5 contender Miado hungry to regain his old spot in the rankings.
Amir Naseri vs. Taiki Naito
The lead card will also feature a flyweight Muay Thai contest between talented knockout artists.
After suffering decision losses in their last outings, both competitors have their backs against the wall and fans can look forward to an all-action affair between the Tiger Muay Thai-trained Naseri and the man known as “Silent Sniper.”
Naito’s karate base makes for a unique performance each and every time out, and that style will be interesting to watch against the Iranian’s scrappy – and sometimes reckless – brand of striking.
In short, prepare for a firefight in 4-ounce gloves.
