ONE Championship has just announced that it’s starting 2021 with ONE: UNBREAKABLE, and the promotion is already hard at work filling out the rest of its UNBREAKABLE event series.
Two additional events will be taped at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, but each will air on separate dates and feature the return of some of the world’s most popular mixed martial artists.
The world’s largest martial arts organization will first air ONE: UNBREAKABLE II on Friday, 29 January, and the headline attraction features a pair of heavyweights looking to make a few statements.
In the main event, Italian star Mauro “The Hammer” Cerilli squares off against Russian hard-hitter Abdulbasir “Dagestan Machine” Vagabov.
Both men are Mixed Martial Arts Champions in their respective homelands, and a victory would undoubtedly elevate the winner closer to a shot at ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera’s crown.
Also, the show will mark the promotional debut of Senegalese wrestling sensation “Reug Reug” Oumar Kane, who continues his magnificent transition to mixed martial arts.
He is scheduled to meet four-time Heavyweight Kickboxing and Muay Thai World Champion Alain “The Panther” Ngalani, who has captured the hearts of the global fan base with his warm demeanor and impressive feats of athleticism.
In addition to that event, ONE: UNBREAKABLE III airs just a week later on Friday, 5 February.
That show will be headlined by former two-sport ONE World Champion Stamp Fairtex, who makes her return to mixed martial arts and continues her pursuit of gold in a third sport.
Currently undefeated in mixed martial arts, Stamp will attempt to add another victory to her flawless record and rise from her #5 spot in the atomweight rankings.
But standing in the Thai hero’s way is promotional newcomer Alyona Rassohyna, a Ukrainian Mixed Martial Arts Champion who owns a 12-4 record and has finished 83 percent of her opponents by submission.
In the co-main event, #2-ranked contender Shoko Sato faces Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade. Should the Japanese star get his 36th career victory, he could potentially secure a shot at Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes’ ONE Bantamweight World Title.
The full lineup for ONE: UNBREAKABLE II and III will be released in the weeks to come.
