Narantungalag Jadambaa will face Eric Kelly on 2 July when ONE Championship makes its return to China for another installment of Dynasty of Champions.
The event, to be held in Hefei in the Eastern province of Anhui, will see a number of prominent ONE Championship fighters return including Ann “Athena” Osman who will take on Haiat Farag in her return to the ONE Championship cage.
Former featherweight world champion, Jadambaa is coming off an impressive submission victory over Japanese veteran and former lightweight world champion Kotetsu Boku in May. Jadambaa is looking to make his way back into title contention, but must first get past the Philippines’ top contender, Eric Kelly.
CEO of ONE Championship, Victor Cui, said it was good to return to China, where a lot of MMA fans are hungry for more world-class mixed martial arts action.
“We have some great matchups to look forward to along with an exciting flyweight tournament featuring local homegrown talent. Our main event between Narantungalag Jadambaa and Eric Kelly also promises another memorable battle that fans will not want to miss.”
