ONE Championship has announced the line up for its upcoming Vietnamese card, with a pair of ONE Super Series title bouts set to headline the bill.
ONE: Heart of Heroes is scheduled to take place Friday, March 20, inside Ho Chi Minh City’s Phu Tho Indoor Stadium. ONE made their promotional debut in Vietnam in 2019 when it held ONE: Immortal Triumph last September.
Due to the illegality of MMA in Vietnam, ONE: Immortal Triumph was an all stand-up-affair and with the law unchanged ONE: Heart of Heroes will also consist exclusively of ONE Super Series bouts.
The main event of ONE: Heart of Heroes will be a bantamweight kickboxing title bout between the defending champion Alaverdi Ramazanov and Thailand’s Nong-O. The Thai currently holds the bantamweight Muay Thai belt and will be looking to add a second strap around his waist.
In the co-main event, Slovakia’s Viktoria Lipianska will take on England’s Iman Barlow for the right to be crowned the inaugural ONE Women’s Strawweight Muay Thai World Champion.
