The 10th year anniversary card of ONE Championship dubbed “ONE X” will see three big-time bouts, including two world championships on the line. ONE flyweight world champion Adriano Moraes and ONE atomweight world champion Angela Lee defend their titles on March 26th.

ONE X

After being pushed back last December due to the surge of COVID-19 cases in Singapore, ONE Championship has finalized the date of this gigantic event. Headlining ONE X is the Atomweight title defense of Angela Lee against Stamp Fairtex who won the Atomweight Grand Prix tournament on December 3rd, 2021.

Lee is coming off a maternal break after giving birth to her first child in April 2021. She last fought in October 2019 where she submitted Xiong Jing Nan in the fifth round to retain her title at ONE: Century Part 1.

Another title defense slated on the card is the Flyweight showdown of champion Adriano Moraes and the number two-ranked athlete Yuya Wakamatsu. The Brazilian champion is fresh from his big win against Demetrious Johnson last April 2021 in ONE on TNT 1 for his third title defense in his reign.

On the other hand, his Japanese foe, Yuya Wakamatsu has strung up five straight victories dating back to 2019. Starting when he knocked out former champion Geje Eustaquio in one round.

Since that milestone win, he picked up victories over Dae Hwan Kim, Kyu Sung Kim, Reece McLaren, and Yong Hu to secure his first title shot.

Also in the lineup in the event is the super match between ONE Flyweight Muay Thai Champion Rodtang Jitmuangnon and ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Champion Demetrious Johnson.

The two will compete in a special rules bout which will consist of four rounds, two Muay Thai rounds, and two mixed martial arts where they will alternate in between.
