The 22-year old Lee is coming off her first career loss back at ONE: A New Erar back in March when she moved up to women’s strawweight to challenge reigning queen Xiong Jing Nan for the ONE Women’s Strawweight crown.

 

After a dominant showing in the first four rounds, and exhausted Lee folded in the final frame, allowing Xiong to capitalize and score the TKO victory.

The 37-year old is, among other things, an eight-time world champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a four-time ADCC winner.

 

Nicolini looks to bounce back from her first ONE Championship loss to title contender Tiffany Teo back in 2018.

 

Main eventing ONE’s return to Kuala Lumpur is a rematch between Giorgio Petrosyan and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy in a do-over of their ONE Super Series Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Quarterfinal bout.
