2 fight cards. 1 massive event.
ONE Championship recently revealed the full lineup of fights for their upcoming 100th event, ONE: Century, which is set to take place at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan this coming Sunday, October 13th.
As announced by ONE Chairman and CEO, the massive event in Tokyo, which will mark their second trip to The Land of the Rising Sun, will feature two full-length fight cards, one in the morning and one in the evening.
The morning card, which will be from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM, will air live on TNT in the United States and will feature ONE's biggest American stars. Headlining the morning card will be Singapore's Angela "Unstoppable" Lee defending her ONE Women's Atomweight World Championship against China's "The Panda" Xiong Jing Nan, the reigning ONE Women's Strawweight World Champion in a highly-anticipated rematch.
Lee and Xiong first met at ONE: A New Era in Tokyo back in March, with the latter successfully defending her ONE Women's Strawweight World Championship via 5th-round TKO. This time around, Lee will be in title defense mode as Xiong comes down to her weight division to attempt to become a two-division champion herself.
A pair of supporting main events will feature the culmination of the ONE World Grand Prix tournaments, as Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson of the USA faces Danny "The King" Kingad of the Philippines in the Flyweight Finals, while Edde "The Underground King" Alvarez of the USA meets Turkey's Saygid "Dagi" Guseyn Arslanaliev in the Lightweight Finals.
After the morning card, the action resumes at 5:00 PM for the PM card, which will feature a whopping three world championship bouts.
In the main event, reigning ONE Light Heavyweight World Champion "The Burmese Python" Aung La N Sang of Myanmar will put his title on the line against current reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon "The Truth" Vera of the Philippines in what will be a massive super fight.
Also on the card, ONE Bantamweight World Champion Bibiano "The Flash" Fernandes of Brazil meets the Philippines' Kevin "The Silencer" Belingon for a fourth time.
The newly-crowned ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion Rodtang "The Iron Man" Jitmuangnon of Thailand will also be putting his title on the line against Brazilian challenger Walter Goncalves.
Plus, Giorgio "The Doctor" Petrosyan of Italy meets France's Samy "AK47" Sana in the ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Finals.
