Panda Xiong Jing Nan

ONE Women's Strawweight World Champion "The Panda" Xiong Jing Nan has been a force in the division since her arrival to Asia's largest sports media property. As the only woman to hold the title, she has warded off challengers ever since.

But at ONE: Inside The Matrix on Friday, October 30, she will see a familiar face across the ONE Circle in Tiffany "No Chill" Teo.

The two women originally met for the inaugural ONE Women's Strawweight World Champion in January 2018. Xiong was able to get a fourth-round stoppage to begin her reign. Since that time, "The Panda" has defended the crown three times against Laura Balin, Samara Santos Cunha, and Angela Lee.


She stands alone in the record books, but Teo is bringing a pen with her to etch her name as the next strawweight queen.

Teo's road to another title shot has seen her beat Michelle Nicolini and Ayaka Miura. In Singapore, Teo gets a chance at redemption and usher in a new era in the strawweight division.

It is a rematch that cannot be missed.

The five-round title tilt will be a part of a stacked card in "The Lion City." Four World Championships will help fill out the six-bout card, and this rematch will help bring more excitement to the event.
