ONE Championship: Warrior’s Quest is turning out to be the organization’s biggest and most entertaining card yet. Fans will be witness to battles of the most epic proportions as some of the top names in Asian MMA face off at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this Friday, 22 May.
Evolve Daily gives you 5 Reasons Why You Should Watch ONE Championship Live This Friday:
1) Because it’s bound to be a night of exciting finishes.
There’s nothing more awe-inspiring than watching a devastating knockout or a beautiful submission executed in person. When you know it’s coming, all that there’s left to do is just sit back, wait and cringe from the impact.
With exciting knockout artists such as Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke, Timofey Nastyukhin, Amir Khan, Ev Ting, and Eddie “The Magician” Ng on the card as well as submission specialists like Shinya Aoki, Marat Gafurov and Ariel Sexton, the night is bound to be an exciting one!
2) Because history will be made.
After a four-fight winning streak, Muay Thai World Champion and Evolve Fight Team member Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke is aiming not only for a win but also for the title of ONE Strawweight Champion.
Dejdamrong will be the first Muay Thai World Champion to ever compete for a world title in MMA. This Friday, the only person standing in his way is former pro boxer Roy Doliguez, also a dangerous knockout artist himself.
3) Because we want to see some awesome submissions.
The name Shinya Aoki has become synonymous with flying submissions ever since he stepped into the MMA scene more than a decade ago. This Friday, he faces his toughest opponent yet in Koji “The Commander” Ando who has been on a five-fight winning streak.
Aoki’s execution of beautiful yet deadly submissions is definitely not to be missed. With technical prowess and the guts to pull off anything he wants, Aoki surely won’t disappoint.
4) Because we want to see which featherweight is next in line for the title.
The future of the featherweight division has never looked brighter. This Friday, the most feared names in the division – Ev Ting and Marat Gafurov will put their skills to the test in the cage. Both Ting and Nastyukhin are known for their superb striking skills, evident in their last fights where they knocked out both their opponents.
Gafurov on the other hand, submitted Rob Lisita with a rear naked choke in the first round. There’s no doubt that any of these fighters are serious contenders for the title.
5) Because it’s time to bring magic back into the cage.
The super-talented Eddie “The Magician” Ng makes his much-awaited return to the ONE Championship cage. After a year of taking time off from fighting, Eddie wants to prove that he is stronger than ever.
As one of Asian MMA’s most talented fighters, Ng has the submission skills to impress audiences and keep his opponents on their feet. As he faces BJJ black belt Ariel Sexton this Friday, his grappling skills will surely be put to the test.
This Friday will surely be action-packed! With a stacked fight card filled with some of the most talented fighters in Asian MMA, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t catch them live at ONE: Warrior’s Quest on 22 May at the Singapore Indoor Stadium!
