One Championship, the largest MMA promotion in Asia, will hold an event in Bangkok for the first time on May 27.
The event, entitled "Kingdom of Champions," takes place at Impact Arena and is 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 Shooto’s featherweight champion, carries a 10-0 mark into his One Championship debut.
The co-featured attraction for “Kingdom of Champions” will be the promotion’s featherweight champion, Marat Gafurov, defending his 145-pound title against Kazunori Yokota, the reigning Deep featherweight titlist.
Also slated for the marquee: Timofey Nastyukhin takes on Rob Lisita in a featherweight bout; Leandro Ataides squares off against fellow middleweight Marcin Prachnio; flyweight contender Anatpong Bunrad locks horns with Eugene Toquero; and muay Thai veteran Yodsanan Sityodtong meets Chrech Kosal in a bantamweight affair.
One Championship will announce additional bouts soon.
