THE MIDDLEWEIGHT IS RIDING A 10-FIGHT WIN STREA, SEVEN WHICH HAVE ENDED WITHIN THE DISTANCE.

ONE has announced the headline fight for its first Shanghai card, set to take place on 1 September at the Mercedes-Benz Arena.

ONE: DYNASTY OF CHAMPIONS (SHANGHAI) will see middleweight world champion Igor Svirid defend his title against Russia fighter Vitaly Bigdash.

Svirid, the top middleweight star from Kazakhstan, took care of fan favorite Leandro Ataides in just 17 seconds to win the inaugural middleweight title in Singapore last year.

The middleweight is riding a 10-fight win streak, seven of which ended within the distance.

Making his ONE Championship debut, Bigdash fights out of Rostov-on-Don, Russia and is currently undefeated after seven professional fights. None of his bouts have reached a decision, winning all contests either via submission or by knockout.
