Via ONE Championship: 3 December 2021 – Singapore: ONE Championship™ (ONE) returned with ONE: WINTER WARRIORS, which aired live from the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The card featured a battle for the ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Title, the conclusion of the historic ONE Women’s Atomweight World Grand Prix, and other exciting martial arts contests.
In the main event, reigning ONE Lightweight Kickboxing World Champion Regian Eersel continued his reign of dominance after going to war with Islam Murtazaev to secure a split decision and retain his World Title. Murtazaev was aggressive from the start, pushing the pace with a torrent of flashy combinations. Eersel timed his responses well, countering with efficiency, and both fighters had their moments in a fairly even second round. Eersel came alive in the third, as he pressured an exhausted Murtazaev along the Circle Wall.
The championship rounds then saw the Dutch-Surinamese striker establish himself even further, as he eked out a close victory, extended his winning streak to 18, and moved to 6-0 in ONE.
