ONE Championship (ONE), the world’s largest martial arts organization, today announced the first two World Championship fights for ONE 169: Atlanta on Friday, November 8, at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

In a highly anticipated heavyweight matchup, reigning three-division king Anatoly Malykhin of Russia will put his ONE Heavyweight MMA World Championship on the line against wrestling sensation “Reug Reug” Oumar Kane of Senegal. As the first three-division MMA World Champion for a top global combat sports organization, Malykhin will look to further cement his legacy in his first heavyweight bout since dethroning Arjan Bhullar at ONE Friday Fights 22 in June 2023.

In addition, two of the most exciting strikers on the planet will square off in a trilogy fight when ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Tawanchai PK Saenchai of Thailand defends his belt against fellow countryman “Smokin” Jo Nattawut, who has lived and trained in Atlanta for the past decade. Coming off their back-and-forth World Title bout at ONE 167, Tawanchai will look to finish the rivalry once and for all after narrowly escaping Nattawut twice over the past year in both kickboxing and Muay Thai.
