Good news, Filipino ONE Championship fans! 

Aside from getting treated to a night of fantastic fights at ONE Championship: Global Superheroes on Friday, January 26th at the Mall of Asia Arena, one of ONE's most popular fighters will be in attendance as well!

Thai-Japanese ONE women's strawweight contender Rika 'Tiny Doll' Ishige announced on her Instagram account that she'll be flying in to Manila to catch some ONE Championship action. 

Ishige added that she'll be heading to Boracay the day after fight night. 

Ishige broke onto the scene in 2016 as she made history by becoming one of Thailand's first female mixed martial artists. 

Possessing a killer smile as well as a killer set of skills inside the cage, the 3-1 'Tiny Doll' has become a favorite among fight fans in Thailand and all over the world. 

Ishige is coming off a second-round win over Filipina Rome Trinidad, and will be an interested observer in the women's strawweight bout between Team Lakay's April Osenio and Catalan Fighting Systems Philippines product Jomary Torres, who happens to be responsible for Ishige's lone loss.
