ONE Championship kicked off its 2022 with Heavy Hitters on Friday — and women’s strawweight champ Xiong Jing Nan once again successfully defended her title.
In the Heavy Hitters headliner, “The Panda” went the distance against Japan’s Ayaka Miura, winning a five-round unanimous decision to secure the sixth defense of her crown. The only blemish thus far in Jing Nan’s ONE career came against Angela Lee, down a weight class at atomweight in a bid for a second title.
With their career series tied, a rubber match could still be lurking in the distance. For now, however, Xiong Jing Nan remains a force in ONE’s women’s strawweight division.
One unfortunate absence from the card on Friday was former UFC title challenger Yushin Okami. Okami’s bout wound up cancelled after opponent Leandro Ataides tested positive for COVID-19, the Japanese fighter revealed on social media.
