Jenelyn Olsim in Atomweight World Grand Prix
The Team Lakay rising star has been named as a replacement for Itsuki Hirata after the Japanese sustained injuries on her trainings.
Olsim will now take on Ritu Phogat in the Grand Prix semifinals, set for ONE: NextGen this Friday in Singapore.
It's a massive opportunity for the Filipina, who was originally set to face Jihin Radzuan in an alternate bout at ONE: NextGen II.
She has been impressive since moving down from the women's strawweight division to the women's atomweight class, last beating Bi Nguyen via unanimous decision at ONE: Battleground 3 back in August.
Phogat, however, will be a tough draw as she beat erstwhile no. 2-contender Meng Bo in the quarterfinals at ONE: Empower.
In the other bracket, former ONE Women's Atomweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Stamp Fairtex will face replacement Julie Mezabarba, who came in for the injured Ham Seo Hee.
The winner of the Grand Prix will earn a future title shot at ONE Women's Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee in a future date.
Big changes were made for the card, with the Stamp-Mezabarba duel now placed in the main event spot.
Iraj Azizpour will now be facing Anderson Silva after Roman Kryklia has been pulled from the match, which would have been for the ONE Kickboxing Heavyweight Championship.
