Roger Huerta returns at ONE: 'Dynasty of Champions' on July 2

ONE: "Dynasty of Champions" is set for the Hefei Olympic Sports Centre on July 2nd and the card will feature the return of UFC and Bellator veteran Roger Huerta.

Huerta (22-8-1-1) is best known for his wars with Clay Guida and Leonard Garcia and looked close to his entertaining best in an entertaining back and forth battle with Koji Ando last year. He is booked to face Costa Rica's Ariel Sexton (10-3) and will be looking to halt the momentum of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) black belt who is on a two-fight winning streak.

The card will be ONE Championship's fifth in mainland China and is headlined by a featherweight fight between former champion Narantungalag Jadambaa (11-4) and perennial challenger Eric Kelly (12-2). The former will be looking to set up a rematch with Marat Gafurov while the latter is hoping to avoid losing back to back fights for the first time in his career.

Alexsei Butorin (10-0) was initially slated for a shot at reigning middleweight king Vitaly Bigdash earlier this year. Unfortunately the champion is injured and instead he finds himself facing Myanmar's Aung La Nsang (17-9-0-1) in a fight which could well turn out to be a title eliminator.

Hefei is the fourth city in mainland China to host a ONE Championship card and there will be nine Chinese fighters on the card with Li Kai Wen (5-3) slated to face Keanu Subba (3-1) in a featherweight matchup. There will also be a four man, one night tournament for local flyweights.
