Top ONE: Inside the Matrix II Headlines
Nakashima looks to become the next American champion at ONE
Nakashima is a former University of Nebraska wrestler and LFA welterweight world champion. He'll hope to become the second American this week to become a ONE champion after Thanh Le won the featherweight world title at Inside the Matrix last week.
Abbasov won the belt in his last fight against Zebaztian Kadestam, improving his ONE record to 3-1.
Two lightweight contenders vie for potential title shot
No. 4 lightweight Timofey Nastyukhin and No. 3 Pieter Buist could potentially earn a shot at lightweight world champion Christian Lee with a win on Friday.
The last time we saw Nastyukhin in March of 2019 he shockingly knocked out Eddie Alvarez in the former UFC champion's ONE debut. Since then, he's recovered from a leg injury and hopes to continue his climb through the rankings.
During the time Nastyukhin's been out, Buist won all three of his fights at ONE by defeating Kota Shimoishi, Tony Caruso and Eduard Folayang. The Dutchman is on an eight-fight win streak.
