ONE Championship returns to the Beijing Gymnasium of National Olympic Sports Centre on Saturday, Nov. 21, for ONE Championship Wujie: Dynasty of Champions. The promotion is returning to Beijing, China, for the first time since its inaugural event in the city in December 2014. The nine-fight card features two championship bouts and the return of the Beijing featherweight tournament.
The main event of the evening is the long-awaited clash between the interim ONE featherweight champion Marat Gafurov and ONE featherweight champion Jadambaa Narantungalag. This fight was previously scheduled to headline ONE Championship: Odyssey of Champions on Sept. 27 before Narantungalag was pulled from the card due to travel restrictions into Indonesia. However, the match was not canceled. Instead, the promotion pulled Martin Nguyen from an undercard bout to face off with the undefeated Gafurov. Gafurov remained unbeaten in another stellar performance inside the circular cage.
The co-main event features ONE flyweight champion Adriano Moraes looking to hand “The Kazakh” Kairat Akhmetov his first professional loss in his 22-fight career. The fight will be the Brazilian champion’s second defense of his title against an opponent making his debut with ONE Championship.
The three-fight Facebook preliminary card begins Saturday at 5 a.m. ET. The main card will stream via internet pay-per-view at ONEPPV.com.
