Singapore – The highly-anticipated ONE Fight Night 14 event, set to take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on September 29, promises to be a spectacle of epic proportions. Among the talented athletes stepping into the spotlight that evening, Allycia Hellen Rodrigues, the reigning ONE women’s atomweight Muay Thai world champion, is embarking on a mission to achieve double-champ status in an exhilarating showdown.

In a remarkable display of support and camaraderie, Brazilian jiu-jitsu legend and ONE heavyweight MMA star, Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida, threw his full backing behind his compatriot, Allycia Hellen Rodrigues. ‘Buchecha,’ no stranger to the rigors of combat sports, expressed his excitement for Rodrigues’ upcoming challenge and had nothing but praise for her.

In a motivational message posted ahead of Rodrigues’ battle with Smilla Sundell, ‘Buchecha’ declared, “So, I can’t wait to watch Allycia fighting again. She’s a beast.”

Allycia Hellen Rodrigues’ journey to double-champ status is a testament to her unwavering dedication and prowess in the world of combat sports. Following a hiatus of more than two years due to pregnancy, Rodrigues made a triumphant return to competition. In a dazzling performance, she overcame fellow world champion, ONE women’s atomweight kickboxing queen Janet Todd, at ONE Fight Night 8 last March. This victory secured her the undisputed ONE atomweight Muay Thai world title in a dominant 5-round unanimous decision.

Remarkably, Rodrigues showed no signs of ring rust, proving that her time away from competition had only sharpened her skills and determination. Her remarkable journey and achievements have captured the admiration of fans and fellow athletes alike.

However, the path to double championship glory is no easy feat, and standing in Rodrigues’ way is the formidable Smilla Sundell. The young Swedish sensation etched her name into the history books by becoming the youngest Muay Thai world champion ever at the age of 17. Her decisive victory over Jackie Buntan for the inaugural ONE women’s strawweight Muay Thai world title at ONE 156 marked her ascent to greatness.

Following her world title triumph, Sundell ventured into kickboxing and displayed her versatility by dominating Milana BjelogrliΔ‡ at ONE Friday Fights 14 in May. Now, ‘The Hurricane’ faces the challenge of defending her throne against the tenacious world champion, Allycia Hellen Rodrigues.

ONE Fight Night 14 will be a spectacle featuring not one, but two other world title fights. In a historic matchup, Danielle Kelly and Jessa Khan will vie for the inaugural ONE women’s atomweight submission grappling world title. Additionally, in the main event, former world title challenger Stamp Fairtex will square off against Ham Seo Hee for the interim ONE women’s atomweight MMA world title.

For fans across North America, the entire ONE Fight Night 14 card will be available to watch live and free on Prime Video, ensuring that enthusiasts don’t miss a moment of the thrilling action.

As the date of this captivating event draws near, the excitement in the world of combat sports reaches a fever pitch. The support and anticipation from legends like ‘Buchecha’ only add to the intrigue, making ONE Fight Night 14 a must-watch event for fans around the globe. The outcome of these championship clashes will undoubtedly shape the future of ONE Championship and leave a lasting impact on the world of martial arts.
