ONE: "Dynasty of Champions" is set for Beijing this Saturday night (local time) and the full fight card was recently released for an event which will see Narantungalag Jadambaa face Marat Gafurov in a featherweight unification match and Adriano Moraes defend his flyweight title against Kairat Akhmetov.
In total there will be nine fights on the card, including the final of the four man, one night 145-pound tournament. Two welterweight matchups were revealed today with Jeff Huang returning to the ONE cage to rematch Trestle Tan and Nikolay Aleksakhiin going up against Burenzorig Batmunkh in a battle of promotional debutants.
Huang (5-2) saw a four fight winning streak surprisingly snapped by Tan (3-4) who knocked him out in front of his hometown fans at an event in Taipei earlier this year. The Taiwanese welterweight will be out for revenge while, for the Filipino, this represents the biggest opportunity of his career to date.
Aleksakhin (16-3) has won titles with ProFC and S-70 in Russia and comes from a Combat Sambo background. That should make for an interesting clash of styles when he takes on Mongolian kickboxer Batmunkh (3-1) who coincidentally has a 2010 loss to Jadambaa on his record.
CEO of ONE Championship, Victor Cui stated, "We are delighted to be back Beijing with another round of world-class MMA action for fight fans across the mainland. We have two world title fights set up for fans in attendance, as well as a featherweight tournament to determine the best featherweight in the country. Don’t miss an epic night of bravery and sportsmanship, as showcased by our ONE Superstars!"
The event will be broadcast live in Asia by FOX Sports and will also be available to purchase for $9.99 USD from here. The first four fights will all be streamed via the ONE Championship facebook page.
