Three of the matchups have remained the same. Denice Zamboanga will welcome Seo Hee Ham to the global stage, Itsuki Hirata and Alyse Anderson meet in one of the most talked-about quarterfinal matchups, and Stamp Fairtex is out for revenge against Alyona Rassohyna.

The fourth quarterfinal was initially supposed to include Ritu Phogat, but after a defeat to Bi Nguyen, she was knocked out of the tournament. In her place, American Grace Cleveland will step in to take on #2-ranked contender Meng Bo.

In the main event, "The Panda" Xiong Jing Nan will attempt to keep her ONE Strawweight World Championship against Michelle Nicolini.

Last but not least, pound-for-pound great Anissa Meksen will make her long-awaited ONE Super Series debut against Cristina Morales.

This is a can't-miss event that will produce fireworks and highlights to be remembered. It all goes down on Friday, September 3rd.
