ONE Championship looks to have a stacked September on their hands. First, the announcement of ONE: Empower came with a full ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix slate, and now a blockbuster triple main event has been announced for a brand new card.
ONE: Revolution will take place on Friday, September 24, with three World Championship bouts.
ONE: Revolution Announced with Three Title Bouts
ONE Lightweight World Champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee returns to defend his gold against Ok Rae Yoon. Both men competed on the ONE on TNT series in April and stunned the world with their performances.
Ok defeated former featherweight king Marat Gafurov at ONE on TNT III and earned a quick turnaround to face off with mixed martial arts legend Eddie “The Underground King” Alvarez. In an impressive three-round showing, the South Korean exploded into contention with two impactful victories.
For Lee, he shocked Timofey Nastyukhin with a dynamite knockout. Now, these two lightweights meet for all the marbles in late September.
Capitan defends the ONE Super Series Bantamweight Kickboxing World Championship in the co-main event against Mehdi Zatout.
Zatout had two impressive showings in 2020 to put his name at the top of the contender’s list. He’ll get a shot to pour cold water over one of the hottest figures in ONE Super Series action.
Capitan jumped onto the global stage with a historic six-second knockout and followed up the performance by claiming the gold. He looks to continue his astonishing dominance against the French-Algerian.
The third World Championship bout announced features strawweight supremacy on the line in a trilogy bout.
Joshua “The Passion” Pacio and Yosuke Saruta clash for the third time to decide who will take the series.
The two warriors met twice in 2019. In the first meeting, Saruta dethroned Pacio by a split decision. The tightly-contested match earned Pacio an immediate rematch three months later, where he took down a unanimous decision to reclaim his belt.
Saruta has won back-to-back bouts to earn another crack at Pacio and the ONE Strawweight World Championship. If their previous two meetings are any indication, fans are in-store for a hotly contested World Championship bout.
ONE: Revolution is off to a hot start with its three central main event title tilts. Stick around for more bout announcements as they are made and prepare for the event airing on Friday, September 24.
