06 June 2018 – Macau, China: The largest global sports media property in Asian history, ONE Championship™ (ONE), has just announced the complete fight card of “ONE: Pinnacle of Power.” Like in the promotion’s recent events, strikes-only bouts under ONE Super Series will be mixed with the mixed martial arts matches.
Taking place at the Studio City Event Center in Macau, China on June 23, 2018, “ONE: Pinnacle of Power” will be headlined by reigning ONE Women’s Strawweight World Champion “The Panda” Xiong Jing Nan, 30, of Shandong, China and Laura “La Gladiadora” Balin, 38, of Argentina. This will be Xiong’s first defense of her world title.
Currently, Xiong holds a professional record of 14 wins and 1 loss. In her last bout, she defeated Singapore’s Tiffany Teo by technical knockout in the fourth round to claim the inaugural ONE Women’s Strawweight World Championship.
On the other hand, Balin owns a professional record of 10 wins and two losses. Out of her 10 total victories, 9 have come by spectacular finish including 5 submissions and 4 knockouts.
In the co-main event of “ONE: Pinnacle of Power,” reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano “Mikinho” Moraes, 29, of Brazil will have a rematch with reigning ONE Interim Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio, 29, of the Philippines.
