The seminfinal matchups are in place for the One Championship atomweight grand prix.

Seo Hee Ham will square off against Nong Stamp, while Ritu Phogat will meet Itsuki Hirata in the other half of the bracket, the Singapore-based promotion recently announced. Fan voting voting determined the semifinal pairings.

The former Rizin atomweight queen, Ham earned a controversial split-decision triumph over Denice Zamboanga in the quarterfinals on Sept. 3. The One Championship competition committee reviewed the fight but ultimately elected not to oveturn the result. Ham has won her last seven outings dating back to June 2017.

The 23-year-old Stamp avenged a previous submission loss to Alyona Rassohyna in her quarterfinal bout, as she captured a split-decision triumph in the rematch. The Fairtex Gym product is 6-1 as a pro, with all of her bouts coming under the One banner.

Inda’s Phogat outpointed Meng Bo in the round of eight at One “Empower” to advance to the semifinals. The Evovle MMA export has been victorious in six of seven professional outings while competing solely for One Championship.

Hirata improved to 5-0 with a decision win against Alyse Anderson in her quarterfinal matchup. It was the first time the 22-year-old Tokyo native has gone the distance in her burgeoning professional career.
