ONE Championship Weekly 09/18 Review

Fights:
1.ONE Women's Strawweight Title: Xiong(c) vs Lee NR
2.ONE Middleweight Title: Aung(c) vs Hasegawa ***
3.ONE Bantamweight Title: Belingon(c) vs Fernandes NR
Thoughts:
We start the action this time in the 5th round of championship action! A reminder that I need at least three minutes to give something a rating. That was relevant here as the champ took down her opponent with a TKO in far under three.

Remember, by the way, when I remarked how the AEW Road to episodes reminded me of ONE's video packages? Omega wore a ONE shirt on last night's AEW Dynamite debut.

We start the next fight in the second and the bell couldn't save Ken from defeat here, eating a stiff shot and then solid strikes to finish from Aung. I love the finish! Good fight, though you can skip the the final seconds of it if you'd like. Brandon Vera's challenge after was cool.

The mullet game was strong in this week's main event but the video editing was not, creating a fucked finish. ONE, you're better than that! The replay at least let us see what happened and that submission was sick!

Despite three title matches this week, this episode wasn't must-see from a fight quality standpoint but it was at least far from bad, either. The botched video work was jarring.

Overall Rating: 60/100%
