5 reasons to watch ONE on Prime Video 2 live this Friday, including world titles in 3 different sports

Ahead of ONE on Prime Video 2, check out the biggest reasons to watch the promotion's return to U.S. primetime.

This Friday, ONE Championship will return to U.S. primetime television with a card featuring three world title fights and matches across four different combat sports.

ONE on Prime Video 2 has shaped up to be one of the best offerings in the history of the organization, showcasing electrifying rivalries, high-stakes battles, and some of ONE Championship's biggest stars.

Here are five reasons to watch ONE on Prime Video 2 this Friday.

1. World championship trilogy fight

In the main event, reigning ONE women's atomweight world champion "Unstoppable" Angela Lee (11-2) will challenge "The Panda" Xiong Jing Nan (17-2) for her ONE women's strawweight world title, completing one of the most dramatic and exciting rivalries in recent memory.

The pair's first two encounters were unforgettable.

First, in March 2019 at "ONE: A New Era," Xiong survived several deep submission attempts to storm back and win by a stunning, fifth-round TKO to retain her strawweight world title. 

Seven months later at "ONE: Century," "The Panda" challenged for Lee's atomweight strap. This time, "Unstoppable" staged her own shocking comeback, winning by submission with just 12 seconds remaining in the fight.

#2 Superbon Defends His ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Title

The co-main event will see Superbon Singha Mawynn try to continue one of the best winning streaks in the history of professional kickboxing, as he defends his ONE featherweight kickboxing world title against Dutch-Turkish sensation Tayfun "Turbine" Ozcan.

With three consecutive wins over top pound-for-pound strikers Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, Giorgio Petrosyan, and Marat Grigorian, Superbon is looking sharper than ever.

However, the Thai would be unwise to look past the No. 5-ranked Ozcan, who has lost just one time (via split decision) in the past five years.

3. Submission grappling history will be made

ONE Championship is rapidly building its submission grappling roster and now, the organization is set to hold its first-ever submission grappling world title match.

Rival Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belts Mikey Musumeci and Cleber Sousa will both try to make history in their 10-minute, submission-only contest. The two men split a pair of gi matches against each other in 2017.

Arguably the most accomplished American jiu-jitsu practitioner of all time, Musumeci made his promotional debut in April at ONE 156 with a dominant yet beautiful submission victory over Japanese MMA and grappling legend Masakazu Imanari.

4. High-stakes atomweight action

Top-five ranked atomweights Stamp Fairtex (8-2) and Jihin Radzuan (8-2) will clash in an atomweight bout with serious World Title implications.

A former two-sport ONE world champion and the ONE atomweight world grand prix champion, Stamp will try to restart her path to MMA gold after suffering a disappointing loss to Lee in her last bout.

Meanwhile, Jihin is looking to extend her three-fight winning streak and punch her ticket to a world title fight.

5. A guaranteed banger at lightweight

Finally, high-paced action is guaranteed in a lightweight matchup between longtime ONE Championship fan favorite Timofey Nastyukhin (14-6) and undefeated promotional newcomer Halil Amir (7-0).

Known for his ultra-aggressive brawling style, Nastyukhin has made a name for himself over the past several years as a can't-miss fighter with a penchant for big knockouts.

In Amir, he'll have a willing dance partner. The undefeated 28-year-old has earned a stoppage in each of his wins and is poised to make a statement against an established and well-respected veteran.
