By Mike Sloan May 4, 2016

One Championship this week unveiled the finalized roster for its “Kingdom of Champions” event, which goes down on May 27 at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand.

The card will be headlined by a strawweight championship tilt between Thailand native Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke and unbeaten Japanese fighter Yoshitaka Naito.

Sor Amnuaysirichoke, who won three Muay Thai titles in the famed Lumpinee Stadium, is 6-0 in professional MMA. Naito, a former Shooto champion, carries a 10-0 mark into his One Championship debut.

The co-main event for “Kingdom of Champions” will be the promotion’s featherweight champion, Marat Gafurov, defending his 145-pound title against reigning Deep featherweight titlist Kazunori Yokota.

The promotion previously announced that Timofey Nastyukhin will take on Rob Lisita in a featherweight bout, while Leandro Ataides will square off against fellow middleweight Marcin Prachnio. Flyweight contender Anatpong Bunrad will lock horns with Eugene Toquero, and Muay Thai veteran Yodsanan Sityodtong will collide with Chrech Kosal in a bantamweight affair.

The latest bouts that were announced early Wednesday morning are Shannon Wiratchai going up against Kyal Linn Aung and local prospects Pongsiri Mitsatit and Kritsada Konsrichai will collide with Ye Thway Ne and Kev Hemmorlor, respectively.
