ONE Fight Night 22 has a main event and it is a title fight. Smilla Sundell will be putting her strawweight Muay Thai title on the line when she faces Natalia Diachkova at Lumpinee Stadium on May 4th.

Sundell was just 17 when she won the title in 2022. That made her the youngest fighter to ever win a belt with ONE Championship and she has successfully defended it once.

Her most recent outing came at ONE Fight Night 14 in Singapore. She faced Allycia Rodrigues and stopped the reigning atomweight Muay Thai champion in the third round.

Diachkova is very familiar with Lumpinee Stadium. She has won four fights out of four there on ONE Championship’s Friday night cards, with three of those wins coming courtesy of a first round stoppage.

Two fights

As previously announced there are two fights already on the card. In the atomweight division Noelle Grandjean has been matched with Chihiro Sawada.

There has been an influx of Japanese fighters into the promotion since a broadcast deal was signed with U-Next. Sawada (7-0-1) made her debut at ONE Fight Night 20 last month and beat Jihin Radzuan by decision.

The rankings have not been updated in the aftermath of that fight but Radzuan was #5. Meanwhile Grandjean (5-1) is coming off a decision win over Victória Souza on the same card.

Top contenders

Meanwhile Sinsamut Klinmee has been booked to take on Dmitry Menshikov in a lightweight Muay Thai fight between two top contenders. The Thai has already fought for the title twice.

Both men have losses to reigning champion Regian Eersel on their records. But both are coming off back to back wins and a third victory could leave either man in pole position for another shot at the champion.

Only fights

These are the only fights currently on the card. ONE Fight Night 21 takes place this weekend and is headlined by Eersel who defends his lightweight kickboxing title against Alexis Nicolas.
