The full fight card for ONE: ‘Dynasty of Champions’ is out and it features two big fights in the lightweight and middleweight divisions with former UFC and Bellator star Roger Huerta returning to the cage.
Huerta (22-8-1-1) has looked good in his last two fights, a quickfire TKO win over the previously undefeated Christian Holley and a decision loss to Koji Ando after an action packed, back and forth brawl.
The American has been handed another tough assignment at the Hefei Olympic Sports Centre on July 2nd. He takes on Ariel Sexton, a Costa Rican BJJ black belt who is riding a two fight winning streak.
Sexton (10-3) is coming off impressive stoppage wins over Eddie Ng and Anvar Alizhanov inside the ONE cage and will be looking to move into contention for a shot at champion Shinya Aoki with a win over one of the biggest names in the lightweight division.
Alexsei Butorin (10-0) was initially slated to challenge reigning middleweight champion Vitaly Bigdash in May but the bout was nixed due to injury. Instead the Russian will be going up against another top contender in Hefei when he faces Aung La Nsang in Hefei.
La Nsang (17-9-0-1) is a Burmese born fighter who has proven extremely popular in his native country. He’s riding back to back wins in the ONE cage and knows a win over the current #1 contender could see him leapfrog Butorin into pole position for a middleweight title shot.
The card also features a featherweight bout between Li Kai Wen (5-3) and Keanu Subba (3-1). The former will be fighting for ONE Championship for the sixth time and looking to bounce back from his first ever loss for the promotion.
Hefei will be the fourth Chinese city to host a ONE Championship event after Beijing, Guangzhou and Changsha. The card also features a four man flyweight tournament for local fighters.
