Rika Ishige Bruce Lee

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.

The Czech Republic's Lukas Krpalek put himself in the history books Friday when he became only the third judoka to ever win Olympic gold medals in two different weight categories claiming the men's +100 kg division in Tokyo. Krpalek, who won the under 100 kg class at the 2016 Rio Olympics, hit a throw with time running out in the finals against Georgia's Guram Tushishvili and went into a hold down to pin Tushishvili for the full point to earn his second Olympic championship. Meanwhile, two-time defending +100 kg champion Teddy Riner of France, considered by some the greatest judoka in history, was upset in the quarter finals and had to settle for the bronze.

On the women's side, Akira Sone helped Japan break its own record for most judo gold medals in a single Olympics when she claimed her country's ninth gold of the tournament capturing the women's +78 kg division against Cuba's Idalys Ortiz. The win came in somewhat anticlimactic fashion as no throws were landed and Ortiz lost on penalties in overtime.
