Winter Warriors II / Photo: ONE Championship
ONE Championship unwrapped a gift under the Christmas tree for martial arts fans by announcing surprise additions to the ONE: Winter Warrior II card on Friday, December 17.

Three bouts were added to the lead card of the event and will feature three strong bouts across kickboxing, Muay Thai, and mixed martial arts.

In the opening contest, #3-ranked strawweight Muay Thai contender Joseph Lasiri will meet Japan’s Asahi Shinagawa.

The high-stakes ONE Super Series matchup will kickstart the event in a major way as Shinagawa attempts to take over Lasiri’s position in the official ONE athlete rankings.

Following that contest will be a phenomenal bantamweight mixed martial arts battle.

Fabricio Andrade and Li Kai Wen, two of the most action-packed athletes in the game today, collide to decide which bantamweight will enter 2022 on a high note. Both men are on four-bout win streaks and are seeking title contention in the new year.

Headlining the lead card will be a lightweight kickboxing affair between former title challenger Mustapha Haida and Arian Sadikovic.

The match will signal Sadikovic’s organizational debut and will immediately put him in the mix in the lightweight division. Haida will be looking to spoil his debut and show that he is ready to make another run up the ladder.

The three exciting battles will help set the stage for the six-bout main card and close out an exciting year in Asia’s largest sports media property.

ONE: Winter Warriors II will air across all Bleacher Report platforms at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST.
