The submission artist (7-0; 5 Submissions) will take on challenger Istela Nunes (5-0; 2 KOs) and will rely on her unparalleled ground combat skills and grappling techniques to subdue her seventh challenger. Nunes, meanwhile, hopes to goad the champion into a stand-up fight to snatch the belt.
In the night’s other main event, it’s another battle of the undefeated as Ben Askren tries to bring the “Funky” to the “Alligator,” Agilan Thani, in a welterweight brawl everyone is waiting to see, with the ONE Welterweight world title on the line. Askren has been undefeated in 15 fights. Thani, on the other hand, considered one of the rising welterweight stars in ONE Championship, packs a perfect 7-0 record.
Meanwhile, Filipino cage warrior and Team Lakay representative Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio (8-5) is on a comeback trail as he takes a second crack at fierce rival Anatpong “Mak” Bunrad (5-2) in the undercard. Eustaquio o hopes to avenge his earlier loss to Bunrad and keep Team Lakay’s winning streak inside the ONE Championship arena. Curiously, Eustaquio’s last loss came at the hands of submission specialist Toni Tauru, who was clobbered to oblivion by fellow Team Lakay fighter Kevin Belingon in “Kings of Destiny.”
