On Saturday, Nov. 16, ONE Championship hosted Age of Dragons from the Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China.
The headliner served as the first title defense for flyweight kickboxing champion Ilias Ennahachi. The Dutch-Moroccan striker captured the crown in August with a stunning left-hook knockout of Petchdam Petchyindee Academy. His challenger was a familiar foe. Wang Wenfeng had shared the ring with Ennahachi on two previous occasions, and the pair split the results. The decorated Chinese fighter got a title shot in his promotional debut.
The co-main event decided the promotion’s light-heavyweight kickboxing champ. In one corner stood Tarik Khbabez. The Dutch-Moroccan kickboxer carried a six-fight winning streak that included four previous ONE wins into action against Roman Kryklia. The Kunlun Fight heavyweight champion had won his last eight fights, but this marked his ONE debut.
In additional highlights from the lineup, Yodsanklai Fairtex returned against Jamal Yusupov in a Muay Thai bout, Bo Meng made her promotional debut in an MMA showdown with Laura Balin, top female kickboxer Jorina Baars tangled with Christina Breuer, and Yusup Saadulaev collided with Daichi Takenaka in a featured preliminary-card encounter.
Age of Dragons took place at 7 a.m. ET and aired on the ONE Championship app.
