A pair of Filipino fighters are set to return to action when ONE Championship returns to Beijing, China for ONE: Age of Dragons at the Cadillac Arena on November 16th.

 

 

Team Lakay featherweight contender Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly will try to get back on track when he meets China’s Tang Kai in a preliminary card matchup. 

 

After a three-fight winning streak, Benguet’s Kelly has been up-and-down, winning just three of his last seven outings. The 34-year old is coming off a decision loss to Xie Bin in Manila back in August. 

 

Coming off a lengthy layoff, Tang is looking to follow up his ONE debut back in January with another victory to push his current winning streak to five straight. 

 

Kicking off the preliminary card will be Filipino strawweight Ramon “The Bicolano” Gonzales as he looks to continue his winning streak when he meets China’s own Hexigetu. 

 

Initially scheduled for ONE: Dreams of Gold in Bangkok, Thailand last August, the Gonzales vs. Hexigetu bout was scrapped due to Gonzales failing the hydration test. 

 

Currently riding an impressive three-fight winning streak, Gonzales looks to finally enter the conversation of title contenders.

 

Hexigetu, meanwhile, is looking to make it back-to-back victories on the ONE stage. 

 

Headlining ONE: Age of Dragons will be a ONE Flyweight Kickboxing World Championship contest between titleholder Ilias Ennahachi of the Netherlands and challenger Wang Wenfeng of China. 

 

In the co-main event, the inaugural ONE Light Heavyweight World Champion will be crowned, as Morocco’s Tarik Khbabez faces Roman Kryklia of Ukraine.
