Before the main event, the most talked-about tournament in combat sports will resume with two highly-anticipated semifinal bouts.

First, Thailand’s “Smokin” Jo Nattawut will look to build on his knockout of Sasha Moisa and avenge his loss to Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan from April 2018.

The Italian made it to this stage by defeating Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy in the ONE: MASTERS OF DESTINY main event last Friday, 12 July.

On the other side of the bracket, France’s Samy “AK47” Sanathe man who beat Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex in the quarterfinals at ONE: ENTER THE DRAGON in May – will meet Russia’s Dzhabar “Genghis Khan” Askerov, who got past Enriko Kehl in a thrilling match at the same event.

The marquee match-ups do not stop there, however, as one of Thailand’s favorite daughters will begin her quest to win ONE World Titles in three sports.

Before Stamp Fairtex became the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Champion, she made her mixed martial arts debut on Rich Franklin’s ONE Warrior Series with a 19-second knockout.

On 16 August, she will return to the sport to face a more experienced opponent – Asha “Knockout Queen” Roka. The Indian athlete will make her debut in The Home Of Martial Arts on the back of a perfect 4-0 record she built in her homeland.

Those bouts will be joined by many more on the undercard, including a collection of top-class ONE Super Series Muay Thai contests that should thrill fans in the birthplace of “the art of eight limbs.”

The confirmed bouts so far are listed below.
