ONE Championship was supposed to kick off its women’s atomweight grand prix on Friday on the all-female powered Empower card. That, however, was postponed, with the coronavirus pandemic having other ideas, and COVID-19 still an issue in Singapore (not to mention everywhere else).
Instead, the promotion opted to push back the event, and replace it with a previously taped card entitled Full Blast. In an era where short-notice replacements in fights are the norm, a short-notice event was something seemingly unique.
The five-fight card featured three MMA bouts, most notably between India’s Kantharaj Agasa and China’s Xie Wei. The main event, meanwhile, would feature a familiar name, as Saemapetch Fairtex was lined up against Kulabdam Sor. Jor. Piek Uthai in Muay Thai action. The pair were ranked #1 and #3 in the bantamweight division, respectively, meaning the winner could be in line for a title shot.
