No Holds Barred: Angela Lee, Ben Askren, Shinya Aoki, Mei Yamaguchi, Chatri Sityodtong, ONE Championship Conference Call
On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman presents the September 14 international media conference call hosted by ONE Championship.
This call was to publicize their return to their home base of Singapore with a major show called ONE: Immortal Pursuit.
On the call were:
Angela Lee - ONE Women's Atomweight World Champion
Mei Yamaguchi - ONE world title challenger
Ben Askren - ONE Welterweight World Champion
Shinya Aoki - Former ONE Lightweight World Champion
Chatri Sityodtong - Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship
ONE: Immortal Pursuit will feature these four fighters in title bouts.
Last year the undefeated Angela Lee won a close but unanimous decision over Mei Yamaguchi to capture the first-ever ONE women's atomweight title. This was the only fight in which Angela Lee had not stopped her opponent. Now the rematch is set for this card, and is the third defense of her belt.
In what he has said will be his retirement fight, the undefeated Ben Askren will take on submission specialist and former ONE lightweight champion Shinya Aoki in a welterweight title fight.
All the fighters discussed their careers and their approach to their fights. In addition, Chatri Sityodtong discussed the continued growth of ONE Championship and their plans for the future.
ONE: Immortal Pursuit takes place Friday, November 24, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. More details about this show are expected to be announced shortly.
