ONE Warriors Code Recap, TFC, UFC Aukland Update - Asian MMA Podcast

Let’s start off with a quick recap of ONE Championships Warrior’s Code

And If you regularly watch ONE Championship be sure to check out the live-streamed commentary and breakdowns that I have been doing during the shows with John Ko of Kumite TV. They stream live on the Asian MMA YouTube Channel, Links are in the show notes. 

This was a pretty good card, it had The main event was a Muay Thai title bout that saw Petch take home the strap. 

Because that was the main event though this card was held in a ring instead of a cage which I am just not a fan of. 

In the co-main Reinier De Ridder took a UD over Leanardo Ataides and positions himself as the top challenger for Aung La’s Middleweight strap. 

In other action on the card, Luri Lapicus made easy work of Marat Gafurov earning a first-round submission win. 

Koyomi Matsushima got a beautiful TKO win over a very powerful Jae Woong Kim 

One of my favorite fighters Sunoto earned a UD over Nurul Fikri 

The only woman's bout on the card saw Itsuki Hirata get a third round stoppage over Nyrene Crowley. 

Itsuki looked fantastic, and she seems to be taking a page out of Stamps book with all of her between round dancing and really trying to put on a show. 

I’m wondering if she's trying to angle for a match with Stamp, let’s see. 

I’ll say tho, the stamp dance rolls off the tongue a lot easier than the Itsuki dance. 

ONE Championship has also announced that they will be holding tryouts for ONE Warriors Series in Japan on March 8th in Osaka. 

Without a doubt, ONE is looking to boost the number of Japanese fighters on the roster now that they are holding shows in the country. 

In UFC news Thai woman's fighter Loma Lookboonmee has a new opponent for her fight at UFC Auckland on February 23rd as Angela Hill steps in to replace Hannah Goldy. 

Pancrase strawweight champions Daichi Kitakata has broken his hand in training and will not be able to defend the strap at Pancrase 313, Adam Antolin. No word on when the fight might be rescheduled.  

In other news, Korean promotion TFC has postponed its March 14th card due to the Coronavirus Outbreak, no news on a new date at this time. 

However, this weekend in Thailand UFC Vet and the hardest working fighter in Asian MMA Will Choppe will host Thailand Fighting Championship 4 in Phuket. Certainly a show worth checking out. 

And that is all I have for you guys today.
