Watch the ONE Fight Night 22: Sundell Vs. Diachkova Weigh-Ins And Hydration Tests

Smilla Sundell Allycia Hellen Rodrigues ONE Fight Night 14 22

With ONE Fight Night 22: Sundell vs. Diachkova on Prime Video coming up in U.S. primetime this Friday, May 3, every athlete on the card has one final hurdle to clear to make their matchup official.

Live from Bangkok, Thailand, each competitor must first hit their marks at the weigh-ins and hydration tests to ensure they’re in top form and fit to compete.

Fans can follow the proceedings live by watching the video below beginning at 6 a.m. ET/3 a.m. PT this Thursday, May 2.

The event is headlined by a massive ONE Women’s Strawweight Muay Thai World Title clash.

Reigning queen Smilla “The Hurricane” Sundell has looked unstoppable through four appearances in ONE, but surging Russian knockout artist Natalia “Karelian Lynx” Diachkova believes she can end the teenage prodigy’s reign of terror.

Given the power and finishing instincts on both sides, fans can expect a barnburner from start to finish.

In the co-main event, undefeated MMA standouts Akbar “Bakal” Abdullaev and Halil “No Mercy” Amir will throw down in a crucial featherweight battle.

Kyrgyz phenom Abdullaev hopes to keep his pristine record and 100 percent finishing rate intact, while Turkish sensation Amir is moving down from lightweight as he looks to continue his meteoric rise on the global stage.

Lower on the card, Chinese kickboxing superstar “Demon Blade” Wei Rui will make his highly anticipated ONE debut when he squares off with former ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Champion Hiroki Akimoto.

Already considered among the sport’s top pound-for-pound fighters, the promotional newcomer is being thrown into the deep end, but a win over Akimoto could earn him an immediate shot at divisional kingpin Jonathan “The General” Haggerty.

In lightweight Muay Thai action, Thai fan favorite Sinsamut “Aquaman” Klinmee and Russian powerhouse Dmitry Menshikov – both riding two-fight winning streaks – will collide in an explosive matchup that could produce the division’s next World Title challenger.

Also competing at ONE Fight Night 22 will be #4-ranked flyweight MMA contender Reece “Lightning” McLaren taking on #5-ranked “Wolf Warrior” Hu Yong, unbeaten atomweight MMA upstart Chihiro Sawada, flamboyant Thai brawler Thongpoon PK Saenchai, and BJJ superstar Bianca Basilio.

ONE’s groundbreaking hydration testing protocol ensures that athletes can safely perform on fight day, requiring all fighters to be properly hydrated while on weight.

Check out the full lineup for ONE Fight Night 22: Sundell vs. Diachkova below, and make sure to watch the full fight card beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT this Friday, May 3.
