Atomweight match between former title challengers added to ONE: ‘Light of a Nation’

Mei Yamaguchi

Two of the top contenders in ONE Championship’s atomweight division will do battle in Yangon on June 30th. A fight between Mei Yamaguchi and Jenny Huang was one of two bouts recently added to the upcoming card.

ONE: “Light of a Nation” is set for the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium and will be headlined by a middleweight title rematch between Burmese born challenger Aung La Nsang and champion Vitaly Bigdash.

Two fighters hoping to get back into title contention will be in action when Yamaguchi (15-10-1) faces Huang (5-1). The former will be looking for her first ONE Championship win after back-to-back defeats.

Huang has tasted victory in the ONE Championship cage on four separate occasions but was easily beaten by Angela Lee in a recent title match. Yamaguchi caused the current atomweight champion far more problems, going the full five rounds before losing by decision.

Also added to the card this week was a featherweight fight that pits Bruno Pucci (4-2) against Jimmy Yabo (5-4-0-1). Both men hold black belts, the Brazilian in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and the Filipino in Taekwondo.
