ONE Championship kicks off 2018 with Kings of Courage in Jakarta!
Asia’s premiere MMA promotion, ONE Championship, will start their year by hosting a 9 fight card on January 20 at the Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia. The Singapore based MMA promotion will crown a new champion in the main event of the evening.
Singapore’s Tiffany Teo will take on China’s Xiong Jing Nan in a five-round match up to crown the inaugural women’s strawweight champion of the promotion. It must be noted that ONE doesn’t follow the same weight class system as North American promotions. ONE’s strawweight division is comparable to the North American flyweight division; that means the strawweight title represents 125lbs.
Tiffany Teo will enter the match with an undefeated record of 7-0. She has finished five of her seven wins, and is coming off an impressive first-round submission win over India’s Puja Tomar. Xiong Jing Nan, meanwhile, is ranked as the 3rd pound-for-pound female fighter of China. She is on a five fight win streak, and in her last outing stopped April Osenio in the very first round.
