The main event of the evening will feature a highly anticipated kickboxing match for the vacant 145-pound title between Jonathan “The General” Haggerty and Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade.
With Haggerty currently holding the 145-pound ONE Muay Thai world title, and Andrade holding the MMA title at that same weight, the decision to match this pair together has created quite the buzz. Andrade has not lost a fight since 2018, and is undefeated in all his matches with the company. Similarly, Haggerty is undefeated in his last four bouts.
“The General” claimed his Muay Thai strap back in April with a first round knockout victory over Nong-O Hama, who was undefeated in his 8 contests with ONE Championship. “Wonder Boy” also claimed his title this year, with a fourth round stoppage win over the veteran John Lineker.
While both competitors are specialized in other disciplines, a kickboxing match between the pair is fascinating, and both are such high level strikers that regardless of who comes out on top, the fans will be the real winners.

With such an exciting main to look forward to, it could be easy to overlook some of the fights that are scheduled to precede the headlining kickboxing match. But, to overlook the inaugural 185-pound submission grappling championship match between Tye Ruotolo and Magomed Abdulkadirov would be an absolute crime.
In addition to an outstanding performance at the 2022 ADCC World Championships, Ruotolo signed with ONE Championship that same year, where he has performed flawlessly with four straight wins and three submissions.
Making his ONE debut, Abdulkadirov is also a veteran of ADCC. In addition to earning his Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, he also has a background in wrestling, sambo, and MMA.
