The top of ONE Championship’s featherweight division is about to get a lot more crowded after four of its leading contenders face off.

A match that is likely to get the home fans on their feet almost as much as the headline attraction features the return of Yangon’s Phoe “Bushido” Thaw (6-0).

The undefeated 33-year-old will compete for the first time since his unforgettable front-kick knockout of Sor Sey at ONE: QUEST FOR GOLD in February.

He will get his toughest test yet as he is scheduled to face MIMMA Featherweight Champion Keanu Subba (6-3).

The Malaysian sensation is developing a reputation as one of the promotion’s most exciting athletes, and he will be looking to continue his climb up the ranks after his triumphant first-round submission of “White Dragon” Xie Chao at ONE: PURSUIT OF POWER in July.

They will be joined by another top-shelf contest in the weight class as Rafael “Indio” Nunes (11-2) welcomes Movlid “Killer” Khaibulaev (13-0) back to The Home Of Martial Arts.

Every one of Nunes’ victories has come via spectacular finish, but the Brazilian will have his work cut out for him against one of Russia’s most exciting undefeated forces.

The man from Moscow made a statement by jumping into ONE competition for the first time against previously unbeaten contender Herbert Burns at ONE: THRONE OF TIGERS in February 2017. He rose to the occasion that night, earning a dominant unanimous decision.

Some of the hardest hitters in ONE Super Series will return to action for bouts that promise to deliver fireworks – particularly a battle of Moroccan-Dutch heavyweight kickboxers.

In one corner for this clash of the titans is Ibrahim “Mr. Cool” El Bouni (37-6-1).

El Bouni, the author of one of the quickest knockouts seen in ONE’s striking-only league, will return for his second appearance in the world’s largest martial arts organization.

The power puncher only needed 91 seconds to take out Andre “The Giant” Meunier at ONE: BATTLE FOR THE HEAVENS in July.

He will stand across from another powerhouse in Tarik Khbabez (43-5-1), who made a similarly impactful debut earlier this year.

This young superstar stopped Alain “The Panther” Ngalani via TKO in the third round at ONE: PINNACLE OF POWER, proving his punches are also not to be taken lightly.

The striking giants will be joined by smaller, but no less exciting kickboxers on the main card in the bantamweight division.

Top King Muay Thai World Champion Han Zi Hao (58-15) is coming off a thrilling victory over Stergos Mikkios last month at ONE: BEYOND THE HORIZON.

The 23-year-old will become the first athlete to make a third ONE Super Series appearance. He will square off against a six-time national Muay Thai champion from the Philippines, Ryan “The Filipino Assassin” Jakiri (9-3), who will make his promotional debut.

A pair of fantastic mixed martial arts match-ups will complete the main card, as a quartet of competitors aims to charge back towards the top of their divisions.

In featherweight action, SFC Bantamweight Champion Emilio “The Honey Badger” Urrutia (11-6) is sure to thrill fans with his all-action style, which has already delivered one of the knockouts of the year and a contender for the bout of the year, too.

He will put his skills to the test against Pancrase Lightweight Champion Kazuki Tokudome (18-9) from Japan, who will compete in the world’s largest martial arts organization for the second time.

Former ONE Strawweight World Champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke (8-4 ) will also make his comeback to the cage for his first bout since March.

The three-time Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai World Champion will face India’s seven-time national wushu champion Himanshu Kaushik (4-2) in a strawweight tilt.

Local favorites Ye Thway Ne (3-1) will meet Mite Yine (1-0) in a strawweight mixed martial arts battle of two-time Lethwei Gold Belt Champions.

In bantamweight action, “Tank” Ma Xu Dong (5-2) will square off against Ahmad Qais Jasoor (4-1) in a meeting between Chinese and Afghan athletes.

The night’s first ONE Super Series kickboxing contest will pit Italy’s Joseph “The Hurricane” Lasiri (37-7) and Australia’s Josh “Timebomb” Tonna (31-16) together in a flyweight clash.

Finally, Indonesia’s Rudy “The Golden Boy” Agustian (5-1 in Muay Thai) and the Philippines’ Kaji “Alpha” Ebin (2-1) will begin the night in a flyweight mixed martial arts bout.
