ONE Women's Strawweight World Champion "The Panda" Xiong Jing Nan has been a force in the division since her arrival to Asia's largest sports media property. As the only woman to hold the title, she has warded off challengers ever since.

But at ONE: Inside The Matrix on Friday, October 30, she will see a familiar face across the ONE Circle in Tiffany "No Chill" Teo.

The two women originally met for the inaugural ONE Women's Strawweight World Champion in January 2018. Xiong was able to get a fourth-round stoppage to begin her reign. Since that time, "The Panda" has defended the crown three times against Laura Balin, Samara Santos Cunha, and Angela Lee.
