Aside from putting the spotlight on all forms of martial arts, ONE Championship prides itself on its ridiculously-high 70 percent finishing rate.
Sure, a five-round technical battle is fun to watch, but fans love to witness martial arts' effectiveness through highlight reel knockouts and submissions.
For instance, more fans from North America have developed a deeper appreciation for ONE’s elite warriors through the promotion’s partnership with Amazon Prime Video.
On November 18, inside Singapore Indoor Stadium, ONE Championship will be staging its fourth event live on US Primetime with ONE on Prime Video 4: Abbasov vs. Lee, which airs free on Prime Video with every Amazon subscription.
As always, that stacked card is once again littered with killers from top to bottom.
The high-stakes affair will be headlined by Christian Lee’s quest for two-divisional supremacy against ONE welterweight world champion Kiamrian Abbasov.
Rodtang Jitmunagnon’s ONE flyweight Muay Thai world title will also be on the line against strawweight Muay Thai king Joseph Lasiri, who is also looking to become a dual world champion.
Let’s have a look at five of the best finishers you should watch out for at ONE on Prime Video 4.
#5. Kim Jae Woong (ONE Championship bantamweight MMA)
A fighter who holds the moniker ‘The Fighting God’ must be worth his salt and be able to back it up.
Kim Jae Woong has done that so far, as all his three wins inside the circle have come via terrifying knockouts.
The South Korean slugger has succeeded against fierce competition as well, holding signature KO wins over Tetsuya Yamada and former two-division ONE world champion Martin Nguyen at featherweight.
Kim has now decided to test new waters at bantamweight and will take on former world champion Kevin Belingon.
‘The Silencer’ is a knockout artist himself, so expect fireworks in this fight.
#4. Jonathan Haggerty (ONE Championship bantamweight Muay Thai)
Kim Jae Woong is not the only one starting his journey in a new weight class at ONE on Prime Video 4. Jonathan Haggerty has also decided to move up to 145 pounds.
The former ONE flyweight world champion will look to extend his winning streak to three against Vladimir Kuzmin.
‘The General’ has become a crowd favorite for his willingness to throw down with anyone at any given time.
The British striker brings a brand of beautiful violence inside the circle with his destructive kicks that feature the perfect blend of grace and power.
#3. Kiamrian Abbasov (ONE Championship welterweight MMA)
ONE Championship welterweight world champion Kiamrian Abbasov is used to his opponents sleeping on him and then making them pay each time.
If Christian Lee makes the same mistake in their match-up, expect ‘Brazen’ to add another spectacular finish to his growing resume. The Russian mauler has 11 career wins by TKO, with three of those taking place inside the circle.
Abbasov’s elite wrestling is his bread and butter, as he often overwhelms his foes with crushing top pressure and punishing ground and pound. But what makes him truly scary is the freakish missiles he calls hands, which often than not, always find their way to his opponents’ chins.
#2. Rodtang Jitmuangnon (ONE Championship flyweight Muay Thai)
This list would not be complete without Rodtang Jitmuangnon.
The Thai wrecking ball is one of the most feared killers in the promotion due to his ability to dish and absorb an insane amount of damage.
‘The Iron Man’ has won 11 of his 12 matches inside the circle and has never tasted defeat in striking-exclusive matches.
Rodtang’s finishing ability was on full display against Jonathan Haggerty in their rematch at ONE: A New Tomorrow, when he savagely knocked down the Brit thrice in one round to reclaim his world title.
Relieve Rodtang’s epic performance below:
Simply put, Rodtang is a destructive force of nature and we’ll see if Joseph Lasiri will be able to weather the storm that’s coming his way.
#1. Christian Lee (ONE Championship welterweight MMA)
As if there were any questions about who occupies the top spot.
Christian Lee has always been a walking highlight reel since day one. ‘The Warrior’ has fought all his professional fights inside the circle and has finished all but one of his 16 career wins.
The Singaporean-American can end the fight anywhere and anytime thanks to his versatile skillset.
Lee’s innate killer instinct is second-to-none and his 94 percent finishing rate is as impressive as it gets, especially considering the level of competition he has faced over the years.
Abbasov, however, has never been knocked out in his career. We’ll see real soon if Lee will become the first person to do so and become a two-division world champion in the process.
