Next month’s ONE Championship: Defending Honor line-up has been finalised thanks to the addition of three new fights to a card that is topped with two title bouts.
In new additions to ONE Championship 49, Walaa Abbas (2-3) comes up against Tiffany Teo (3-0) in a women’s flyweight contest, Benedict Ang (3-0) meets Ahmed Mujtaba (5-0) in a battle of unbeaten featherweights, and Muhamad Haidar (0-1) takes on Nico Soe (1-1) at flyweight.
In the main event of ONE Championship 49, lightweight champion Shinya Aoki (39-6) will put his belt on the line against Eduard Folayang (16-5), while in the co-main event, featherweight champion Marat Gafurov (14-0) will come up against former champion Narantungalag Jadambaa (12-4) in a rematch.
ONE Championship 49 will take place on November 11 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, and will stream as an online pay per view show in North America.
“Soul Crusher” Teo will make her promotional debut and brings a perfect record into the fight with a pair of knockouts and a submission to open her pro career. The 26-year-old was raised in Singapore, so gets to fight in front of her home fans.
“It is an honor for me to compete in ONE Championship,” Teo stated. “I am very blessed to be in the position that I am, ready to give it my all and take it one fight at a time. I’m also excited to perform in front of my friends and family in Singapore.”
