A flyweight title fight between Adriano Moraes and Kairat Akhmetov has been added to the ONE: ‘Dynasty of Champions’ card.
The Brazilian champion will be making the second defence of his belt against the Kazakh challenger in Beijing on November 21st.
Moraes (13-1) has won four straight fights for ONE Championship and would be undefeated were it not for a controversial split decision loss to Yusup Saadulaev in a 2013 catchweight contest. He won the ONE 125 lbs title by submitting Geje Eustaquio and followed that up with a decision win over Asuka Mikami in his first defence.
The Brazilian will be making his second title defence against an opponent who has a better record than any other flyweight in the world. Akhmetov (22-0) will be looking to claim the ONE 125 lbs belt and extend a winning streak which dates all the way back to his MMA debut in 2010.
ONE: ‘Dynasty of Champions’ is taking place at the National Olympic Sports Centre Gymnasium in Beijing. It will be the organizations third event in mainland China and the second to take place in this particular venue.
The main event sees Jadambaa Naruntungalag make the first defence of his ONE 145 lbs title against recently crowned interim champion Marat Gafurov. This bout was originally slated for Jakarta last month but the Mongolian was unable to enter Indonesia due to visa issues.
The 21 November card will also feature a featherweight tournament for Chinese fighters. In the semi finals Zhang Jia Cai faces Qiao Long Fei and Yang Sen challenges Ala Teng Bu Ri Ge De with the winners set to face off at the end of the evening.
