When it comes to fight nights, be it UFC or major boxing events, we are used to seeing them all happen on the weekend. If you look at other organizations, though, you will find that there are a lot of great events taking place in the middle of the week, too. We have one coming on Wednesday, with ONE hitting the airwaves on TNT for a main card that includes 4 MMA fights and a Muay Thai bout. The main event of the night is a title fight, so this is certainly worth tuning into. One thing of note is that the event is on tape delay on TNT starting at 10 PM EST, so be sure to get your bets in ahead of time. Now, let’s break down the main card for ONE On TNT 2: Lee Vs Nastyukhin so you can get all set to make your bets against their MMA odds.
ONE On TNT 2: Lee Vs Nastyukhin | MMA Betting
Janet Todd Vs Anne Line Hogstad
Let’s get this preview rolling by talking about the Muay Thai bout before we delve into the meat of the main card. This fight is actually listed as the co-main event and features Todd, who is on a 5-fight winning streak, although there were a few kickboxing wins in among that group. She goes against Hogstad, who has just 2 pro bouts, going 1-1, although getting that lone win in Muay Thai, with the loss at a kickboxing event. Todd has to get the nod here.
Mitchell Chamale Vs Shuya Kamikubo
This Featherweight bout has all the makings of being a good one and looks like a fight that seems destined to go the distance. Chamale comes into this bout on the heels of 3 straight wins, all of which came inside the opening 2 rounds. Kamikubo is 11-1-1, which is a strong record, be he is also unbeaten in 4 fights under the ONE banner. This will be the first fight for Chamale with ONE, so I believe he could be in trouble here.
Kyu Sung Kim Vs Shuo Wang
Next up is a bantamweight bout that features a pair of fighters who are highly ranked in their respective regions. Kim is the #2 ranked Bantamweight in China, and while he is 10-4 overall, he is just 1-2 during his time in ONE. Wang is 11-4 and coming into this one on a 4-fight winning streak, although this is a bit of a step up in class. I think we are looking at a fight that goes the distance, with Wang getting the decision.
Shinechagtga Zoltseteg Vs Yoshiki Nakahara
It’s the Lightweights up next, with both of these fighters coming into this bout on a very decent run of form. Zoltseteg is 6-2 in the early going in his pro career and has strung together 4 straight wins ahead of this fight. 3 of those 4 wins came within the opening 2 rounds. Nakahara boasts a 14-5 career mark, but he also has just 1 loss in his last 10 fights. I don’t believe this one goes the distance, as I like Nakahara to win by KO.
Christian Lee Vs Timofey Nastyukhin
We close the night out with a Welterweight Title fight that could be a fun one to watch. Lee comes in as the defending champion and has a ton of experience despite being just 22 years old. Lee is 14-3 and comes into this fight having won 5 in a row. Nastyukhin is 14-4 and 9 years older than the champ, yet he comes into this one as the underdog. He has won 4 of his last 5 fights, but I have a feeling he might end this one on the mat via KO.
