One of the matches will be between Christian “The Warrior” Lee, 19, of Singapore and Kazunori Yokota, 39, of Chiba, Japan.

He has impressed fans with his ability to seek out stoppage wins over top-caliber opponents.

A former Pankration World Champion, Christian toppled Japanese veteran and former ONE Lightweight World Champion Kotetsu Boku in his most recent bout, winning by first-round technical knockout to improve his record to 8-1.
