Asia’s biggest mixed martial arts promotion is staging a massive event this September 24 at ONE: Revolution, where three world titles from two sports will be up for grabs on the same night inside the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

In the card’s main attraction, ONE Lightweight World Champion, Christian Lee will be looking to sweep the top five contenders under his division as he takes on the third-ranked contender, Ok Rae Yun.

A victory over the South Korean slugger will put Lee in a very unique feat of beating all of the top five ranked fighters in the Lightweight division and extend his championship reign ever since winning the belt over Shinya Aoki in May of 2019.

As for Ok, he has the opportunity to capture championship glory in only his third organizational bout after beating former ONE Featherweight Champion, Marat Gafurov and former UFC Lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez in two straight weeks last April for ONE on TNT 3 and 4 respectively.

In the co-main event, ONE Bantamweight Kickboxing Titlist, Capitan will be defending his belt for the first time as he faces veteran, Mehdi Zatout. Capitan won the title last January when he knocked out the then-champion, Alaverdi Ramazanov in just two rounds.

Meanwhile, Zatout is currently on a two-fight winning streak after edging out Han Zi Hao by split decision in his maiden match under ONE and following it with a more convincing unanimous decision win against Leo Pinto last year, thus earning him the right to challenge the Thai champion.

Completing the world championship bouts during the night is the trilogy fight between reigning Strawweight World Champion, Joshua Pacio and former champion and now the number one-ranked contender, Yosuke Saruta.

This rubber match will finally close the chapter between these two rivals and determine the definitive king of the Strawweights. The Japanese scored a razor-thin split decision win over the Filipino in January of 2019.

But three months later, Pacio settled the score with Saruta after a devastating head kick knockout in their championship rematch to reclaim the title. The Team Lakay stalwart has since defended the crown twice over Rene Catalan and Alex Silva.

On the other hand, Saruta also collected two victories over Daichi Kitakata and former world champion, Yoshitaka Naito to earn another shot against ‘The Passion’.
