Aung La N Sang vs Leandro Ataides is a contest that can stand to greatly inform the middleweight contender hierarchy going forward.
N Sang looks to return to the win column after a pair of losses to Reinier de Ridder. Fights that saw him drop both his middleweight and light heavyweight championships.
Former ONE middleweight title challenger Ataides is also looking to get back into the win column after a loss to the aforementioned Reinier de Ridder.
Ritu Phogat was recently teasing an upcoming bout in the ONE Circle and now the opponent and date have been confirmed. The talented rising atomweight takes on Lin Heqin in what promises to be a gritty affair.
Heqin is a Road FC vet who looks to go 2-0 under the ONE Championship banner. She has a stiff test in front of her in the form of this hard-charging wrestler.
Jeremy Pacatiw vs Chen Rui is a bombastic bantamweight bout.
Pacatiw is a Brave CF veteran who makes his ONE debut here. While for Chen, seven of his eleven career bouts have taken place inside the ONE Circle. He looks to bounce back in the win column under the organization’s banner once more.
Victoria Lee opens up the main card as she tests skills against Wang Luping.
The young sibling of ONE Championships divisional rulers Angela Lee and Christian Lee readies for her sophomore effort inside the ONE Circle. The Prodigy looks to go 2-0 as a pro-MMA fighter near the end of the month.
Luping is riding a three-fight winning streak heading into her debut bout with ONE Championship.
Beyond these intriguing MMA bouts, Kickboxing and Muay Thai action bolster ONE: Battleground as well.
Topping the marquee, the ONE strawweight Muay Thai world title will be on the line. Reigning and defending champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao aims to maintain his hold on the gold against a challenger over a decade his junior, Prajanchai PKSaenchaigym.
Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong versus Tayfun Ozcan is a fireworks featherweight kickboxing contest. The former Glory Kickboxing lightweight champion takes on the reigning 70 kg and 72.5 kg Enfusion Champion.
A prizefight that could very well end up being the fight of the night.
ONE Championship last broadcasted a card on Friday, June 11th with the pre-recorded ONE: Full Blast II.
