Filipino-American female Muay Thai fighter, Jackie Buntan, is set to return to ONE Championship this weekend.
She burst onto the scene earlier this year when she dominated Strawweight standout Wondergirl, immediately cementing her place as one of the top contenders in her division.
A few months later, Buntan earned her second win in ONE Super Series when she edged a narrow split decision win against Ekaterina Vandaryeva.
Now, she is set to return for her third bout in ONE Championship when she takes on Daniela Lopez in a Strawweight Muay Thai bout on the all-female event, ONE: EMPOWER, on Friday 3rd September.
She reflects on her ONE Championship journey so far and gives us an idea of what to expect in her upcoming fight this week;
