ONE Championship Middleweight Championship
Igor Svrid vs. Vitaly Bigdash
- Ann Osman vs. Irina Mazepa
- Ev Ting vs. Honorio Banario
- Peter Davis vs. Adrian Pang
- Eric Kelly vs. Hiroshige Tanaka
- Eugene Toquero vs. Riku Shibuya
- Dae Hwan Kim vs. Teng Li Ge
- Gianni Subba vs. Marcos Ratinho
- Saiful Merican vs. Melvin Yeoh
- Ruel Catalan vs. Almiro Barros
- Agilan Thani vs. Hisham Hiba
- Keanu Subba vs. Florian Garrel
This is a pretty stacked card! Fans of MMA will love this because the match ups guarantee action! Expect to see some fantastic finishes as well.
1. If Ann Osman wins her fight they should put her in a title fight to become the inaugural ONE Championship Female Flyweight Champion. Actually she would be their first female champion. I see a superfight coming within the next year or two between Osman and rising star Angela Lee.
2. Ev Ting vs Honorio Banario is going to be fireworks. This fight stylistically screams action!
3. Davis vs. Pang is an interesting fight. Both guys are skilled and tough as nails. This could be a number one contender bout potentially. Davis is on a four fight win streak, and Pang is on a two fight win streak. If Tynanes does not get title shots for his next fight then they should set up Tynanes vs Ando for a number one contender fight. I believe the Malaysian, and his interesting style has the better shot at dethroning Japanese MMA legend Shinya Aoki from his ONE Championship throne than Pang does.
|ONE Championship gold may be in the near future for a few on the card|
4. Eric Kelly is back! He was not lying in the interview we did with him when he said that he was going to be back in the cage soon. He has been out of action since last year when he defeated Rob Lisita who pushed him to his limit! Kelly had to reach deep down, and find something within him to win after the punishment he took. Cui and Hume were trying to set up Kelly in a title fight, but Kelly wanted to take time to recover from the punishment he received from Lisita. Then the hiatus came. Now that he is back he wants to go straight to the title, and if he can win spectacularly I am sure he will get the next shot at the ONE Championship Featherweight gold that so many passionate fans believes he truly deserves.
