Of course, the headlining rematch between Fabricio “Wonder Boy” Andrade and John “Hands of Stone” Lineker will be the main attraction. But the fights that have been added will provide fans at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand, with a similar level of excitement.

The ONE Fight Night 7 is expected to be an enthraller with the superb matchups made

Tawanchai has posted five back-to-back wins since joining ONE, coming against the likes of Sean “Clubber” Clancy, Sitthichai “Killer Kid” Sitsongpeenong, Saemapetch Fairtex, Niclas “Dreamchaster” Larsen, and most recently, Petchmorakot Petchyindee.

Number two-ranked contender Yusupov isn’t a pushover, though. The Turkish has earned the scalp of some big names, Yodsanklai “The Boxing Computer” Fairtex, Samy “AK47” Sana, and “Smokin’” Jo Nattawut, on his way to a perfect 3-0 run in the promotion.

Yusupov will be hungry to get his hands on the gold, but he must stay sharp in all areas if he wants to upset the local hero in the capital city of Thailand. Martin “The Situ-Asian” Nguyen is set for a featherweight MMA tilt against rising star Shamil “The Cobra” Gasanov.

The Vietnamese-Australian has endured a string of defeats and wants to bounce back with a strong performance. Beating Gasanov would not be a walk in the park, however. The unbeaten Russian (13-0) introduced himself to a global audience with a quick submission win over “The Fighting God” Kim Jae Woong in his debut last year. A victory for “The Cobra” this Friday will certainly edge him closer to the featherweight MMA crown.

ONE Fight Night 7 will serve MMA, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, and Grappling bouts

American sensation and BJJ black belt Danielle Kelly will take on former ONE Women’s Strawweight World Title challenger Ayaka “Zombie” Miura in a 119-pound catchweight submission grappling bout. Both women are known for their relentless ground game and submission abilities. So, be sure not to blink an eye when the two grapple it out on the canvas.

Meanwhile, Eko Roni Saputra will square off against his toughest career test when he meets #3-ranked flyweight MMA contender Danny “The King” Kingad.

The Indonesian wrestling specialist has been on a roll with seven straight first-round wins, and he will be eager to get another one in an attempt to enter the divisional ranks. Kingad, on the flip side, has consistently been a present threat in the stacked division, and he will undoubtedly want to end Saputra’s run of wins to get another shot at the gold.
