ONE Championship just released their reported ONE: Fists of Fury II Weight/Hydration Results. Amir Aliakbari vs Kang Ji Won and Alexandre Machado vs Anatoly Malykhin are both compelling bouts in the seemingly ever-growing ONE Championship heavyweight division.
Aliakbari and Malykhin are both making their first forays into the ONE Championship Circle here at ONE: Fists of Fury II.
Aliakbari is a veteran of the ACA and Rizin circuits. The decorated Greco Roman wrestler has picked up notable mixed martial arts victories over Daniel Omielańczuk, Denis Smoldarev, Valentin Moldavsky, and Heath Herring.
Malykhinhas mostly plied his trade with Fight Nights Global and GTC before deciding to transition into the ONE ranks.
ONE: Fists of Fury II is predominantly an MMA-oriented event but there will also be a bantamweight Muay Thai bout featured within the pugilistic proceedings.
Fight week has been progressing and we are but hours away from the event. The pre-recorded show broadcasts at Friday, March 5th at 7:30 AM EST from Singapore Indoor Stadium.
