ONE Championship resumes its event schedule at 8:30 am eastern time with ONE: Battleground. It all goes down on Friday, July 30th and the fistic fireworks transpire at Singapore Indoor Stadium.
The ONE Strawweight Muay Thai world championship is on the line in the main event. Sam-A Gaiyanghadao defends his crown against Prajanchai PK Saenchai.
Both men have hundreds upon hundreds of fights each. Each man has cited the other as being among the toughest opposition they have faced in their decorated, championship-laden Muay Thai careers.
In the co-main event, former two-division ONE world titleholder Aung La N Sang returns to the ONE Circle. He collides with former ONE middleweight title contender Leandro Ataides in what could easily end up being a title eliminator in the division.
A pair of intriguing Atomweight affairs bolster the card and each has divisional importance.
Ritu Phogat looks to rebound from her controversial decision loss to Bi Nguyen when she takes on Lin Heqin. Heqin has compiled an eleven-fight win streak prior to this Phogat fight. Although she has been out of competition for close to two and a half years, Heqin has healed up some injuries and seems excited to get into the ONE Circle against the dominant wrestler.
Victoria Lee steps into the ONE Circle for her sophomore fight and looks to notch her second MMA victory overall. The teenage sibling of reigning ONE Championship titleholders Angela Lee and Christian Lee will test skills against Wang Luping who is riding a three-fight win streak heading into this bout.
This latest offering from ONE Championship is a six-fight event overall and is bolstered by multiple combat disciplines.
