Reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon "The Truth" Vera and former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard "Landslide" Folayang will be leading a strong Filipino continget to the the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City for ONE: Conquest of Champions on November 23rd. 

Vera will be making his long-awaited return to the ONE cage when he defends his title against Italian Cage Warriors Heavyweight Champion Mauro "The Hammer" Cerilli. 

Undefeated in three fights under the ONE Championship banner, Vera is coming off a two-year layoff, with his last fight happening back in December of 2016. Cerilli on the other hand is riding a five-fight winning streak. 

In the co-main event, former ONE Lightweight World Champion Folayang tries to become a two-time champion when he battles Amir Khan for the vacant title. 

Folayang is coming off back-to-back victories against a pair of tough Russian grapplers, while Khan is also on a two-fight winning streak of his own, with the latest being a submission victory over Folayang's Team Lakay teammate Honorio Banario. 

Speaking of Banario, the former ONE Featherweight World Champion makes a quick return to the cage to face Korea's Dae Sung Park. 

A top contender in the lightweight division, Banario has won five of his last six bouts. Park on the other hand, is on an equally impressive run of his own, winning seven of his last eight contests including a pair of wins under the ONE banner. 

Also on the card, Jeremy Miado meets China's Peng Xue Wen, while Rockie Bactol kicks off the card against Japan's Akihiro Fujisawa. 

Conquest of Champions will be ONE's fourth and Final event in Manila for 2018.
