A women’s 115-pound fight has been set for the ONE Championship 54 event on April 21st when Gina Iniong takes on Natalie Gonzales Hills. To clear any confusion, the ‘ONE’ organization refers to their 115-pound division as the atomweight division, unlike most organizations which refer to the 115-pound division as the strawweight division, and the 105-pound division as the atomweight division.
Iniong (4-2-0) will be making her debut for the organization and will be making the move up from 105-pounds to 115-pounds. She is coming off an impressive first round submission over Vanessa Rico Fernandez back in January 2016. She has previous first round finishes over Nathalie Heidel and Sonrex Patanao. Her most recent career loss comes to UFC strawweight Cortney Casey by way of first round rear-naked choke. She will be looking to make a statement in her ONE debut, and potentially challenge for the ONE championship 115-pound belt further down the line, the current champion is the undefeated Angela Lee.
Gonzales Hills (1-4-0) is coming off a four-fight losing streak and will be hoping to finally get back in the win column with an impressive performance over a highly touted contender in Iniong. Her sole career victory came in her professional debut when she submitted Samantha Manderson in the third round via rear-naked choke back in October 2012.
ONE Championship 54 takes place on April 21st from the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines. The event will be aired live on pay-per-view via ONE Championship’s official website.
