ONE Championship will crown an inaugural women’s strawweight champion on Jan. 20 at “ONE Championship 67: Kings of Courage” taking place at the Jakarta Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The event will be headlined by a strawweight title fight between Tiffany Teo (7-0) and Xiong Jing Nan (10-1).
Teo, a 28-year-old Singapore native, transitioned to MMA from boxing and Muay Thai in 2016. Since the move, five of Teo’s seven victories are stoppages— including a recent submission win over Pooja Tomar in November.
The 29-year-old Chinese fighter, Nan’s, sole career loss comes to Bellator flyweight Colleen Schneider via a 2015 decision. Of her 10 career wins, seven are knockouts.
In the Singapore-based promotion, strawweight actually indicates 125 pounds. The inaugural champ will become ONE’s second women’s champion— next to current atomweight (115 pounds) champion, Angela Lee.
