ONE on Prime Video 2 results: Xiong Jing Nan beats Angela Lee in rubber match thriller - MMA Junkie

the third time, Xiong Jing Nan and Angela Lee squared off inside the cage – and for the third time fight fans were treated to some high-level, high-stepping action.

Above the ONE on Prime Video 2 event on Friday at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, champion Xiong (17-3) and challenger Lee (12-2) competed in a trilogy rubber match for the women’s strawweight title. When the dust settled, Xiong was declared the winner by unanimous decision.

There was a lot of dust that was kicked up over the course of five, five-minute rounds, but at first it looked like the bout might be stopped early in the contest.

In Round 1, Xiong swarmed Lee and even knocked her down. Lee was on the retreat for much of the round with referee Herb Dean nearby. Somehow, Lee did just enough to survive.

Although things looked bad for her when she came out of her corner for Round 2, Lee proved it was all an illusion. She out-wrestled Xiong until the round bell and nearly pulled off an anaconda choke.

In Round 3, the striking battle resumed. Xiong, like Lee, was not phased by one bad round. She landed an effective knockdown on Lee again. Meanwhile, Lee showed off some of her better striking moments of the match.

The championship rounds rolled around but both fighters still looked fresh. Xiong’s boxing was crisp and effective as she splashed Lee in the face. Lee took advantage of her wrestling late when she shoved Xiong against the fence.

The final round brought as much violence as any. The two women traded blows, swollen, scratched and bruised. As the clock wound down to zero, the two signaled to the crowd. They threw their defense out the window and just threw hands up until the buzzer. Soon after, Xiong was declared the winner.

Xiong and Lee had fought twice before Friday’s bout, with the fighters at one win apiece. Xiong won their first meeting by TKO via body kick and punches in March 2019. Seven months later, Lee extracted her revenge with a fifth-round submission in October 2019.

With the win, Xiong extends her winning streak to four. Meanwhile, Lee moves to 2-3 in her most recent five.
