Rika "Tiny Doll" Ishige returns to action at ONE: A New Breed III on Friday, September 18. The ONE Championship atomweight will try to thwart the challenge of 19-year-old Sunisa "Thunderstorm" Srisen in the event's lone mixed martial arts bout.


The Thai-Japanese athlete has a big personality in and out of the ring, and she has shown it during her walks down the ramp in her previous bouts.

Ishige discussed her entrances and mentioned that her childhood dream was not one of martial arts competition, but to be a professional wrestler. That flair for entertainment is seen in her dazzling walks toward the ONE Circle. She was enamored with the outfits' glitz and glamor and has showcased her own stylings for her entrances.

She has also taken inspiration from her coach and fellow ONE athlete, Shannon Wiratchai.

In the video, hear from "Tiny Doll" as she gives insight into a variety of her unique and colorful entrances.

How will you perform at the moment of truth?

What's going to happen to you physically and emotionally in a real fight where you could be injured or killed? Will you defend yourself immediately, hesitate during the first few critical seconds of the fight, or will you be so paralyzed with fear that you won't be able to move at all? The answer is - you won't know until you can say, "Been there, done that." However, there is a way to train for that fearful day.
