ONE Championship continues its "ONE on TNT" series Wednesday with lightweight world champion Christian Lee defending his title against knockout artist Timofey Nastyukhin.

Here's the full card, how to watch and top headlines to look out for.

Christian Lee Continues Clearing Out Lightweight Division

Not many fighters can say they've done just about all they can do in a division, but that's starting to become the case for Lee. What makes that even more impressive is he's only 22 years old.

After defeating the legendary Shinya Aoki in May 2019 to capture the lightweight belt and become the youngest male champion in ONE history at the age of 20, Lee also went on to beat Saygid Arslanaliev in the lightweight world Grand Prix final later that year. In October 2020, he defended his title for the first time against Iuri Lapicus and knocked out the top contender inside three minutes.

With a win over Nastyukhin on Wednesday, Lee will have beaten the top four ranked contenders in the division. Warrior has mentioned he would like to go back down to featherweight and become a two-division champion at some point. Perhaps that happens soon if Lee keeps rolling at lightweight.

   

Janet Todd Eyes Muay Thai Title Shot with Win

It's been an outstanding two years for Janet Todd. After losing her debut to Stamp Fairtex for the atomweight muay thai world championship in 2019, JT is on a five-match win streak and claimed the atomweight kickboxing world title in the process.

Now she has her eyes set on becoming a two-sport champion. Currently ranked second in the atomweight muay thai rankings, a win over No. 3 Anne Line Hogstad would likely put Todd next in line for a shot at champion Allycia Rodrigues. Not bad for a 35-year-old who's only been fighting professionally for five years.
