ONE: EMPOWER is set to kick off Friday in Singapore, featuring the first all-women’s fight card hosted by a major global martial arts organization.

Reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion Xiong Jing Nan will look to defend her title against second-ranked strawweight contender Michelle Nicolini in the main event.

Alyse Anderson of Michigan, currently 5-1 professionally, will compete in her first ever ONE event. Previously a full-time nurse on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19, Anderson recently transitioned into MMA as her primary occupation. She’ll face Itsuki Hirata in one of four Atomweight World Grand Prix quarterfinals.

Jackie Buntan of California will meet Daniele Lopez on the lead card in ONE Super Series Muay Thai. Buntan is 2-0 in her professional MMA career, having defeated Wondergirl and Ekaterina Vandaryeva earlier this year.
