ONE Results: Xiong Jing Nan Dominates, Defends Her Title

Xiong Jing Nan made her sixth successful title defense, earning a dominating victory in the main event of ONE: Heavy HItters.

Xiong Jing Nan earned a dominating title defense at ONE: Heavy Hitters. 

In the main event, Xiong downed Ayaka Miura to remain strawweight champion. This marked her sixth consecutive title defense. 

The Chinese superstar bombarded Miura with a plethora of boxing combinations early, as her power earned the Japanese challenger’s respect. Miura tried to bring the action to the ground on multiple occasions across five rounds, but with no success. Xiong exhibited incredible takedown defense from start to finish and cruised to a flawless victory.

In the co-main event, rising star Tawanchai upset #1-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai striker Saemapetch, dismantling his Thai compatriot in the first round while scoring two knockdowns.

Tawanchai showcased his superior speed early, stifling Saemapetch with fast and powerful punches and kicks that forced the former World Title challenger onto the back foot. A glancing left hand sent Saemapetch to the canvas, but he got up and beat the mandatory eight-count. Another furious combination from Tawanchai soon after sent Saemapetch down for the last time, as the referee waved off the contest.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s protege, Saygid Izagakhmaev, announced his arrival on the global stage of ONE Championship by dominating former ONE World Title challenger James Nakashima to win via second-round submission.

Nakashima was effective with his striking to start the fight, but Izagakhmaev soon found his range and successfully brought the action to the ground. In the second round, Izagakhmaev effortlessly took Nakashima to the mat, ending matters with a head and arm triangle choke.
