ONE Championship updated the fight card for Saturday’s ONE: Age of Dragons event taking place at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing.
There’s been a change in opponent for popular Thai fighter Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex.
Originally, the Muay Thai legend was slated to face Ukraine’s Sasha Moisa, a combat sports veteran who competed in this year’s ONE Featherweight Kickboxing GP. Moisa lost in the quarterfinals by TKO to Jo Nattawut.
Replacing Moisa is Jamal Yusupov, a China-based Russian fighter who’s competed for Kunlun Fight and Wu Lin Feng. Yusupov picked up a win at Kunlun Fight 85 last month with a third-round TKO win against China’s Liao Shiwu.
The Yodsanklai-Yusupov bout will be fought under Muay Thai rules with a catch weight of 73 kg (160.93 lbs). The fighters will wear MMA gloves instead of regulation kickboxing gloves.
Here is the updated list of ONE Super Series (Muay Thai and Kickboxing) bouts taking place at ONE: Age of Dragons.
The prelims begin at 5 p.m. local Beijing time, which is 4 a.m. in New York and 1 a.m. in Los Angeles. The prelims will be streamed free on the ONE Championship Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts.
The main card follows. Fans in the United States can catch the main card on the B/R Live App (paid subscription required). In other countries, the event is likely free via the ONE Super App.
