In the fight card is a match between Agilan “Alligator” Thani, 22, of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Amitesh Chaubey of India.

Thani is one of the top welterweights in ONE Championship. His quick rise through the ranks has seen him amass a stellar 8-1 professional record, including a title shot against former ONE Welterweight World Champion Ben “Funky” Askren, 33, in May 2017.

Although Thani fell short of victory against Askren, he gained a great amount of experience as a result and has emerged as a more seasoned combatant. All but one of Thani’s victories have come by exciting finish.
