On Friday, Nov. 24, ONE Championship returned to the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, for ONE Championship: Immortal Pursuit.
In the night’s main event, welterweight champion Ben Askren hung up his gloves up as an undefeated fighter when he defeated former ONE lightweight champ Shinya Aoki in the final fight of his career. Askren racked up 18 wins in his stellar career, including victories over current Bellator welterweight king Douglas Lima and former titleholder Andrey Koreshkov. Aoki returned to the cage for the first time after his nine-fight winning streak was snapped by Eduard Folayang in his most recent bout in November of last year.
The co-headliner featured a battle of strikers Adrian Pang and Amir Khan. Australia’s Pang looked to rebound following back-to-back losses to Roger Huerta and the previously aforementioned Folayang. Singapore’s Khan was riding a five-fight winning streak with stoppages in all five bouts, including four in the first round.
In the night’s main-card action, former title challenger and top atomweight Mei Yamaguchi looked to avenge a previous defeat to Gina Iniong. UFC veteran Leandro Issa took on South Korean Dae Hwan Kim and undefeated Singaporean prospect Tiffany Teo took on India’s Puja Tomar.
The preliminary card aired live at 6 a.m. ET on ONE Championship’s Facebook page. The main card continued via pay-per-view on Flo Combat at 7:30 a.m. ET.
