It’s been an explosive April for ONE Championship, and the action isn’t yet over.
This Thursday, 15 April, The Home Of Martial Arts returned with “ONE on TNT II,” which aired on American prime-time television and showcased five engrossing martial arts clashes that left fans thirsting for more.
In the main event, ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee retained his belt with a spectacular victory over #3-ranked contender Timofey Nastyukhin.
The tension was palpable when both men squared off in round one, as die-hard fans knew this could be Lee’s greatest test inside the Circle.
But the defending king handled the pressure well, as he starched Nastyukhin with a left hook, dropped the challenger, and then landed 14 unanswered blows, causing the referee to stop the action at 1:13 of the first round.
In the co-main event, ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Champion Janet “JT” Todd earned her second ONE Super Series Muay Thai win of 2021 by scoring a third-round TKO over Anne “Ninja” Line Hogstad.
Todd controlled the bout from the opening bell and put the finishing touches on the #3-ranked atomweight Muay Thai contender with a body kick that sent Hogstad to her knees, where she was unable to beat the count.
With her second ONE Super Series Muay Thai win this year, the atomweight kickboxing queen could be next in line to challenge ONE Atomweight Muay Thai World Champion Allycia Hellen Rodrigues in a bid for two-sport gold.
