The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), kicked off a historic evening at the Ryogoku Kokugikan with ONE: CENTURY 世紀 PART I, broadcast live in the United States on TNT and B/R Live and in over 140 countries around the world. The greatest martial arts athletes in the world took to the ONE Circle to showcase their amazing skills. In the main event, reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee retained her World Title, submitting challenger and ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion Xiong Jing Nan with a rear naked choke.
In the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix Championship Final, reigning ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee of Singapore delivered a virtuoso performance, dominating Saygid Guseyn Arslanaliev of Turkey over three tough rounds. It was a close and competitive first round, with Arslanaliev attacking with powerful punch combinations. Lee, on the other hand, found success in taking his opponent down and scoring with ground-and-pound. In the second round, Lee capitalized on an exhausted Arslanaliev, piling on unrelenting punishment from top position. In the third round, Lee continued his dominance, pouncing on Arslanaliev, who could do little more than defend from the onslaught. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Lee, who took home the ONE Lightweight World Grand Prix Championship as the tournament winner.
