The world’s largest martial arts organization celebrated its 10th anniversary at ONE X, and the results from this past Saturday’s three-part extravaganza have shaken up the official ONE athlete rankings in a big way.
Below, we break down all the latest changes.
Atomweight MMA rankings
The women’s atomweight MMA rankings look quite different after featuring in multiple bouts at ONE X.
Alyona Rassohyna, who split a pair of competitive bouts with Stamp over the past 15 months, enters the rankings at the fourth spot.
ONE atomweight champion: Angela Lee
- Stamp Fairtex
- Ham Seo Hee (+1)
- Denice Zamboanga (-1)
- Alyona Rassohyna (NR)
- Jihin Radzuan (NR)
Strawweight MMA rankings
The men’s strawweight MMA rankings barely saw any movement.
The only change happened at the bottom, as Filipino striker Jeremy "The Jaguar" Miado bumped his compatriot Lito "Thunder Kid" Adiwang out of the No. 5 contender spot with his second-round TKO victory.
ONE strawweight champion: Joshua Pacio
- Bokang Masunyane
- Jarred Brooks
- Yosuke Saruta
- Hiroba Minowa
- Jeremy Miado (NR)
Flyweight MMA rankings
There was a little bit of movement in the men’s flyweight MMA division.
The rest of the division’s top five remains untouched.
ONE flyweight champion: Adriano Moraes
- Demetrious Johnson
- Kairat Akhmetov (+1)
- Yuya Wakamatsu (-1)
- Danny Kingad
- Reece McLaren
Bantamweight kickboxing rankings
Similar to the strawweight MMA division, there was only one change in the men's bantamweight kickboxing ranks – but this happened at the very top of the pile.
At ONE X, rising Japanese superstar Hiroki Akimoto dethroned defending titleholder Capitan Petchyindee to become the new ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing World Champion.
By losing the gold, the Thai dropped out of the World Champion’s seat and moved down to the #1 contender spot.
ONE bantamweight kickboxing champion: Hiroki Akimoto
- Capitan Petchyindee (-1)
- Alaverdi Ramazanov
- Nong-O Gaiyanghadao
- Petchtanong Petchfergus
- Felipe Lobo
Featherweight MMA rankings
The men’s featherweight MMA division experienced a drastic makeover.
Chinese knockout artist Tang Kai's impressive first-round victory over "The Fighting God" Kim Jae Woong elevated him to the No. 1 spot and may have earned him the next shot at ONE featherweight world champion Thanh Le.
That big jump in the ranks pushed virtually everyone else down a peg, including Kim, former featherweight king Martin "The Situ-Asian" Nguyen, and most recent world title challenger Garry "The Lion Killer" Tonon.
ONE featherweight champion: Thanh Le
- Tang Kai (+3)
- Kim Jae Woong (-1)
- Martin Nguyen (-1)
- Garry Tonon (-1)
- Yoshiki Nakahara
Featherweight kickboxing rankings
The men’s kickboxing rankings in the same weight class went through a nearly identical shake-up.
ONE featherweight kickboxing world champion Superbon Singha Mawynn earned his redemption when he dominated No. 1 contender Marat Grigorian in the opening bout of "ONE X: Grand Finale."
And earlier in the evening at "ONE X: Part I," Chingiz "Chinga" Allazov routed Sitthichai "Killer Kid" Sitsongpeenong via unanimous decision to win the ONE featherweight kickboxing world grand prix championship.
With his tournament triumph, Allazov leapfrogged three slots to earn the top position in the rankings – and the next shot at Superbon. That bumped Grigorian, Giorgio Petrosyan, and Sitthichai down one spot each.
ONE featherweight kickboxing champion: Superbon Singha Mawynn
- Chingiz Allazov (+3)
- Marat Grigorian (-1)
- Giorgio Petrosyan (-1)
- Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong (-1)
- Tayfun Ozcan
