Topping a thrilling 10-bout card in Kuala Lumpur is a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest between “Smokin” Jo Nattawut and Yohann Fairtex Drai. Needless to say, both men are well aware that main-event success could reward them with enormous opportunities.

Nattawut is a two-division Lion Fight World Champion, but the sensational striker is chasing the biggest accolade of his career to date in ONE.

After losing a decision to Giorgio “The Doctor” Petrosyan in his promotional debut, the American-based Thai knows that only victory can keep him on that path.

Drai trains at the famous Fairtex gym in Pattaya, Thailand, where he trains alongside Yodsanklai IWE Fairtex, who made an impressive ONE Super Series debut in May.

Two pivotal welterweight clashes could shape the future of the division, and a hometown hero is among the four heroes competing on 13 July

Kuala Lumpur’s own Agilan “The Alligator” Thani returns to the cage to face off against Zebastian “The Bandit” Kadestam, as two former ONE Welterweight World Title challengers look to climb back towards the top spot.

Thani suffered his only career defeat when he met Ben “Funky” Askren for the illustrious belt last year. But since then, “The Alligator” has rebounded with consecutive victories over Sherif Mohamed and Amitesh Chaubey.

Kadestam made an explosive impact by coming from behind to knock out Luis “Sapo” Santos in his first ONE contest last May. Despite also coming up short against Askren’s relentless ground attacks in his title match, the Swede has shown he is a dangerous opponent in the cage.

Incidentally, Santos will also return to action after he got back to winning ways against Kiamrian Abbasov at ONE: DYNASTY OF HEROES, and is the third man on this bill to have previously faced Askren.

The Brazilian veteran – who has an astonishing 64-10-1 record – knows another win could place him as a frontrunner for contendership.

He will have to overcome Tyler McGuire, who makes his ONE debut. The American is unbeaten so far in his career, with submission victories in seven out of his 10 contests.

Was surprised to find out Santos lost his fight.  He fell off since the Askren fight.
