Roman Kryklia

ONE: Collision Course is set for Friday, December 18, and it will feature two premier ONE Championship World Title matches at the top of the bill.

Reigning ONE Light Heavyweight Kickboxing World Champion Roman Kryklia will receive his next challenge from Andrei "Mister KO" Stoica in the evening's main event.

Stoica is on a three-bout win streak, and the last time he was inside the ONE Circle, he put on a show with a first-round KO against Anderson Silva at ONE: Mark For Greatness. But the Ukrainian champion has been on an even bigger tear as of late.

Kryklia will look to run his streak to double-digits with a victory after capturing the gold in his ONE debut against Tarik Khbabez at ONE: Age Of Dragons.

In the co-main event, ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao meets Rodlek PK.Saenchaimuaythaigym to determine who the best bantamweight in the world is in 2020.

Rodlek earned the opportunity by winning the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament earlier this year and forcing his way into the title picture with amazing results.

The event also features four mixed martial arts contests on the undercard, including former ONE Featherweight World Champion Marat "Cobra" Gafurov meeting Lowen Tynanes in a lightweight competition and "Pretty Boy" Troy Worthen taking on Yusup Saadulaev in bantamweight action.

Singapore plays host to another night of nonstop martial arts action.

When The Fast and the Furious (2001) sped into the psyche's of illegal street racing enthusiasts, with a penchant for danger and the psychotic insanity of arrant automotive adventure, the brusque bearish, quasi-hero rebel, Dominic "Dom" Toretto was caustic yet salvationally portrayed with the power of a train using a Vin Diesel engine.

Host country Japan continued to run roughshod over judo at the Olympics Thursday winning both golds on day 6 of competition in Tokyo. Shori Hamada's match in the women's 78 kg division was over almost before it began as her French opponent, Madeleine Malonga, missed on an inside trip attempt just 10 seconds into the contest allowing the ground specialist, Hamada, to take it to the mat. Hamada worked her way free of Malonga's legs and into a hold down position for an easy pin to take the gold medal.

In the men's 100 kg category, Japan's Aaron Wolf waited until overtime against South Korea's Cho Gu-ham before going for his own ouchi gari, inside trip. Unlike Malonga though, Wolf, whose father is American and mother Japanese, landed his perfectly putting Cho flat on his back for an ippon, full point, to take the finals. Japan has now tied their own record for most gold medals (8) in a single Olympic judo competition with three events still to go.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of articles and advertisements, all touting the myriad of benefits children receive from studying martial arts.
