Saygid Arslanaliev rematches Timofey Nastyukhin at ONE: ‘Winter Warriors’
The two first fought at ONE: ‘Conquest of Heroes’ in 2018. Arslanaliev needed less than two minutes to put Nastyukhin away on that occasion.
Nastyukhin (14-5) challenged for the lightweight title at ONE on TNT Part II. He was stopped in the first round by Christian Lee but remains at #5 in the rankings.
Lee is also the only fighter to ever truly defeat Arslanaliev (8-2). His other loss was a DQ for an illegal soccer kick, weeks after ONE Championship had changed the rules to make that strike illegal.
Also on the card is a heavyweight fight between Marcus Almeida (1-0) and Kang Ji Won (5-0). The Korean burst onto the scene with back to back knockout wins on ONE Championship card but has been out for a few months with a facial injury.
As previously announced the event will feature the final of the atomweight Grand Prix with Stamp Fairtex facing Ritu Phogat. It will be headlined by a kickboxing title fight with lightweight champion Regian Eersel facing promotional newcomer Islam Murtazaev.
