The card for ONE Fight Night 14 has been boosted with the addition of another big bout. This time it is bantamweights who will collide with John Lineker taking on Stephen Loman.

Lineker is ranked #1 while Loman is ranked #2. Under normal circumstances this would be a title eliminator but champion Fabricio Andrade who is tied up with a shot at the kickboxing belt and beat the Brazilian convincingly.

Lineker (26-10-0-1) is a former bantamweight champion. He is coming off a very late finish of Jae Woong Kim at ONE Fight Night 13 earlier this month.

It will be a quick turnaround for the UFC veteran. He lost his title to Andrade at ONE Fight Night 7 earlier this year, Lineker took such a bad beating that his corner decided to throw in the towel after four rounds.

Top contender

Although Loman (17-2) is ranked lower than Andrade he is seen as the top contender in ONE Championshipโ€™s bantamweight division. He has won three fights out of three for the promotion.

In total Loman has won 11 in a row and he was the Brave bantamweight champion when he signed with ONE Championship. The Filipino is coming off a decision win over former champion Bibiano Fernandes at ONE Fight Night 4.

This will be Lomanโ€™s first fight of 2023. By contrast Lineker has already competed twice this year but the Filipino knows a win over another former champion would surely be enough to earn him a title shot.

Interim title

As previously announced Stamp Fairtex will face Seo Hee Ham in the main event of ONE Fight Night 14. Theย  interim atomweight title fight will be on the line.

The belt has been introduced because regular champion Angela Lee is out of action and looks likely to retire. She has not fought since the tragic death of her sister, Victoria Lee but will be cageside in Singapore and is set to make an announcement about her future.

Stamp earned her shot at the belt by stopping Alyse Anderson at ONE Fight Night 10. She has also held the atomweight kickboxing and Muay Thai titles.

Ham is the former Deep-Jewels 105lbs champion, Road FC 105lbs champion and Rizin 108lbs champion. She has spent much of her career competing in Japan and beaten the likes of Ayaka Hamasaki, Miyuu Yamamoto and Mina Kurobe.

Replacement opponent

Updates to the fight card have been coming thick and fast this week. Allycia Rodrigues will be replacing Jackie Buntan at ONE Fight Night 14, she is moving up in weight to challenge the strawweight Muay Thai champion.

Rodrigues currently holds the atomweight Muay Thai title.ย  Buntan has been booked to rematch Sundell but she pulled out of the fight due to โ€˜family mattersโ€™ leaving the Swedish fighter without an opponent.

Rodrigues has the opportunity to secure a second title in a different division. But Sundell has never lost a ONE Championship fight and is big even by strawweight standards.

Submission grappling

Another title fight is on the ONE Fight Night 14 card. Danielle Kelly and Jessa Khan will rematch with the inaugural atomweight submission grappling title on the line.

Kelly and Khan first went head to head in 2021. The Cambodian/American claimed a decision win that day but it is her opponent who has gone on to enjoy success with ONE Championship.

Kelly has won three and drawn one of her four bouts for the promotion. Meanwhile Khan has yet to make her ONE Championship debut having seen several matches fall through.

Sweet science

The card will also feature a boxing match between two strawweights wearing MMA gloves. Nat Wondergirl will face Xiong Jing Nan withย  spinning back fists allowed under the ruleset.

Xiong Jing Nan is the reigning strawweight champion in MMA. Meanwhile Wondergirl is coming off a loss to Lisa Kyriacou at ONE Friday Fights 26.

Xiong has a background in boxing and was on the national team in her native China. Meanwhile Wondergirlโ€™s roots are in Muay Thai although both have been more focused on MMA in recent years.
