ONE Championship’s female roster is one of the most exciting in all of combat sports.
From dominant World Champions to up-and-coming stars, the promotion is unmatched for its depth of female talent.
Below, we break down five female fighters who always deliver inside the Circle, starting with a Filipina-American standout.
Jackie Buntan is a fighter who has made a name for herself in ONE’s strawweight division, going 3-1 against some of the toughest women in Muay Thai.
The Boxing Works standout is well known for her promotional debut win over Nat “Wondergirl” Jaroonsak, in which she dropped the Thai superstar with a powerful punch en route to a unanimous decision win.
She recently faced Smilla “The Hurricane” Sundell at ONE 156: Eersel vs. Sadikovic this past April in a five-round battle for the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title, and although she came up short, Buntan showed why she’s going to be a force for some time.
Angela Lee has proven time and again that she is truly “Unstoppable” as the ONE Atomweight World Champion.
Lee holds a record of 10-2 in the Circle, with her latest win against Stamp Fairtex at ONE X this past March ending in round two by submission.
Her feat was all the more impressive because she had been away from competition for two years to focus on motherhood, while Stamp was rising through the ranks as the next biggest thing.
Stamp is one of the brightest stars in the organization. With five finishes to her name, she’s gone 11-4 in ONE’s kickboxing, Muay Thai, and MMA divisions.
Stamp has also held multiple titles in her tenure with the organization, more specifically the ONE Atomweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Titles.
Although she fell to Lee in her quest to become a three-sport ONE World Champion, Stamp is always just one win away from testing herself against “Unstoppable” once again.
Sundell looked superb against the aformentioned Buntan, but it was in her debut where she really shined.
She faced Diandra Martin at ONE: FULL CIRCLE this past February in a catchweight banger, and the teenage phenom knocked Martin out in the third round.
At just 17 years old, and with the ONE Strawweight Muay Thai World Title around her waist, Sundell is the woman to beat.
“Wondergirl” might’ve been known as a Muay Thai prodigy, but the Thai sensation recently showed off her talent in MMA. She needed less than a minute and a half to armbar Zeba “Fighting Queen” Bano at ONE 157: Petchmorakot vs. Vienot this past May, setting her mixed martial arts career off to a thrilling start.
