ONE Championship’s final show of the year will see the company head back to Thailand for its second event in Bangkok this year and there’s a few stellar match-ups on the 10-fight card.
Headlining ONE: Warriors of the World on 9 December is undefeated strawweight champion Yoshitaka Naito (12-0), who looks to fend off Brazilian challenger Alex Silva (6-1) in the main event.
The card will also see the return of Shannon Wiratchai for a co-main event lightweight scrap against Rasul Yakhyaev.
One bout that is sure to get fans fired up is 19-year-old Christian Lee (7-1), who is set to face Kotetsu “No Face” Boku (26-11), the former ONE Championship lightweight king, who has more than 30 professional bouts on his resume.
In his young career, Lee has impressed fans with his ability to seek out stoppage wins over top-caliber opponents. A former Pankration World Champion, Lee toppled fellow top featherweight Keanu Subba of Malaysia in his most recent bout, winning by third-round submission in a competitive contest to improve his record to 7-1.
“No Face” is a legend of the MMA world who finished elite Filipino warrior Eric Kelly by third-round technical knockout back in August and prior to that put a grinding halt to Timofey Nastyukhin with a first round doctors stoppage.
Also returning is former strawweight title holder Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke who takes on Riku Shibuya, while Rika Ishige will come face to face with Rome Trinidad.
