ONE Championship’s First American Premiere: Jackie Buntan and More

April 5, 2023
From: Spartacus

Jackie Buntan is aware of the value of creating a good first impression in front of the ONE Championship’s first American audience.

On May 5 on Prime Video, the promotion will make its American premiere. Some of the biggest stars in combat sports, including Demetrious Johnson, one of the best fighters to ever put on the 4 oz gloves, will compete at the event. With the return of ‘Super’ Sage Northcutt, a native of Texas, fans will also recognise a familiar visage.

As Jackie Buntan returns to the ring for a matchup with Diandra Martin of Australia in “The Art of Eight Limbs,” the sold-out audience at the Colorado’s 1stBank Center will also be treated to the promotion’s distinctive style of Muay Thai. Buntan discussed the significance of creating a good first impression in her interview with Sportskeeda and the eagerly anticipated American debut of ONE.

“Definitely, I feel like having it being the first show here in the States we have to open up the show and make an exciting fight. But honestly, I think that with every fight, even the ones out of the States, the ones far away from home, I think we always have to put on a good show for the fans and for ourselves.”

Along with Jackie Buntan vs. Diandra Martin, fans can watch Rodtang Jitmuangnon defend his ONE flyweight Muay Thai world championship against Edgar Tabares of Mexico.

Jackie Buntan is thankful for the opportunity to take part in ONE Championship’s historic night.

Jackie Buntan acknowledged being taken aback when she learned she would take part in the promotion’s historic North American premiere on May 5.

“I guess my initial thought was I was pretty surprised that they had me on the card, I think that quickly right away. I’m totally [excited] to be on such a massive card, being ONE’s first U.S. show. So all around just pretty excited and grateful.”

The Colorado ONE Fight Night 10 event has sold out, according to ONE Championship.

Unquestionably one of the biggest occasions in ONE Championship annals was ONE Fight Night 10.

The event has officially sold out, according to a recent announcement made live from the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, ensuring that everyone in attendance will have a memorable evening.

Colorado first rose to prominence in the annals of martial arts in 1993. On May 5, it will once again be recorded in history as the first location to hold a significant MMA event.

With three world title bouts taking place under various martial arts rulesets, the card itself is appropriate for such a significant event.

Along with US fighters like ONE flyweight world champion Demetrious Johnson and Sage Northcutt, the event features some of the greatest stars in the promotion, including Rodtang Jitmuangnon, Stamp Fairtex, and the flyweight Muay Thai world champion.

The association between ONE Championship and Prime Video benefits the event as well. Since last year, ONE events have been streamed live and without charge to North American fans via Prime Video, and nothing will alter for this event occurring right outside their front door.

It’s one of the most talented line-ups the promotion has ever put together, with the complete card now officially announced.

One of the greatest MMA trilogy fights ever will take place at the top of the card between Demetrious Johnson and Adriano Moraes for the ONE flyweight world title.

The flyweight Muay Thai and submission grappling world titles are also on the line, so there are still more championship bouts to be had.

When he defends the ONE flyweight Muay Thai world title against Edgar Tabares, fan favourite Rodtang Jitmuangnon will have the opportunity to perform for the US audience. Meanwhile, Mikey Musumeci will once again have the opportunity to fight in front of his home audience when he defends the flyweight submission grappling title.

The ONE middleweight world champion Reinier de Ridder and the on-the-rise Tye Ruotolo engage in another submission grappling match early in the evening.

The event’s middle is dominated by four exciting mixed martial arts matches, all of which feature compelling competitions and stories. Aung La N Sang, a former two-time world champion, will undoubtedly elicit a strong response when he takes on Fan Rong in Colorado.

Sage Northcutt’s return to action against Ahmed Mujtaba on ONE Fight Night 10 is highly anticipated. Zebaztian Kadestam will provide Roberto Soldic with the opportunity to introduce himself to the ONE fans around the globe after a lacklustre debut that resulted in a no-contest.

The biggest star in Asia, Stamp Fairtex, finally makes her US premiere. The American Alyse Anderson is her opponent in the atomweight MMA category.In North America, Prime Video will stream the full card live and without charge.
