When ONE Championship makes its long-awaited return to Singapore Indoor Stadium on September 29, fans won’t want to miss any of the action, as some of the most recognizable names in women’s combat sports will be competing in a number of high-stakes bouts. Smilla Sundell, a young prodigy, will make a comeback appearance to defend her strawweight Muay Thai championship later in the evening in the co-main event of the evening.
At first, Sundell was going to rematch Jackie Buntan in the fight that was originally set for April 202. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Buntan was forced to withdraw from the competition; nevertheless, this opened the door for Allycia Hellen Rodrigues to step in, allowing spectators the opportunity to see a major champion vs champion matchup between two of the most fearsome strikers in the art of eight limbs.
In reference to the short notice with which she was provided the chance, Rodrigues has stated that she fully intends to make the most of it and leave Lion City holding not one but two ONE world titles.
“I grabbed this opportunity with all my might, and I’m going to show it in the fight,” Rodrigues said in his interview with ONE Championship.
