Malaysia’s Jihin Radzuan has been matched with Ayaka Miura at ONE Fight Night 21. It will be her second fight in the space of two months and she needs a win in order to remain in the top five at atomweight.

Radzuan (9-4) was beaten by undefeated Japanese star Chihiro Sawada at ONE Fight Night 20. It was a close and competitive fight although the Malaysian did miss weight by 5lbs.

Looking to steal her spot in the top five is Miura (13-4). She is a former strawweight title challenger who has dropped down a division and is coming off back to back wins.

At ONE 165 Miura competed at atomweight for the first time. She beat Itsuki Hirata by decision and will be looking to challenge for a title in a second division.

MMA fights

Welterweight champion Christian Lee has not fought since the tragic death of his younger sister. When he eventually returns Hiroyuki Tetsuka (13-4) could be in pole position for a shot at his title.

The Japanese fighter has won his last four and will be back in action at ONE Fight Night 21. He has been matched with Brazil’s Valmir da Silva (9-3) in one of three MMA fights currently on the card.

Also in MMA action China’s Wang Shuo (16-7) takes on Jeremy Pacatiw (12-5) from the Philippines. Both bantamweights have been out of action since 2022.

Two titles

There are two title fights on the ONE Fight Night 21 card. Regian Eeersel has established himself as one of the leading standup specialists on the roster and will be defending his lightweight kickboxing title against promotional newcomer Alexis Nicolas on April 5th.

Eersel has won nine fights out of nine since signing for ONE Championship. He holds the lightweight kickboxing and Muay Thai titles and will be putting the former on the line next month.

Nicolas makes his official promotional debut but it is not his first time fighting on a card promoted by Chatri Sityodtong. At ONE Friday Fights 47 he beat Magomed Magomedov by decision.

Submission grappling

The other title match will feature submission grappling with Tye Ruotolo putting his welterweight belt on the line against Izaak Michell. This bout was originally announced for ONE 166 in Qatar.

It got put back five weeks following a reshuffle which meant the Australian had to wait a little bit longer to make his promotional debut.
