Istela Nunes Dominates Gina Iniong in Guangzhou at ONE: BATTLE FOR THE HEAVENS

Former two-time Muay Thai world champion and ONE World Title Challenger Istela Nunes of Brazil made a successful return to ONE Championship after more than a year away from competition, defeating the highly-regarded Gina “Conviction” Iniong of the Philippines.

The 25-year-old Brazilian utilized her length and size advantage to keep Iniong out of range for the majority of the contest, and the Team Lakay veteran had difficulty closing the distance.

In the end, all three judges saw the bout in favor of Nunes to win by unanimous decision.
