Anatoly Malykhin

ONE Championship will present ONE: Fists Of Fury II, a previously record event, on Friday, March 5 with two amazing heavyweight bouts at the top of the ticket.

In the co-main event, Brazilian Alexandre "Bebezao" Machado will try to make a case for contention in the heavyweight division against the undefeated Anatoly Malykhin.

Machado's 88% finishing rate makes him a constant threat inside the ONE Circle, and picking up a key victory by a finish in the co-main event would help bolster his push to meet Brandon Vera for the ONE Heavyweight World Championship.

But the Russian will have similar plans to put himself in the thick of the hunt during his debut in the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Perhaps most impressive about Malykhin's undefeated streak is that they have all come by way of finish. He holds a perfect 100% finishing rate with four knockouts and three submissions. The step-up in competing when he steps inside the Circle will truly test where he stands on the global stage.

If either man can steal the spotlight ahead of the main event, they could position themselves right at the top of the food chain for 2021 and have a golden opportunity against Vera.

ONE: Fists Of Fury II will air on B/R Live at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST on Friday, March 5.

Ngannou UFC 270

Francis Ngannou defended his UFC heavyweight title in the most unexpected way, dominating opponent Ciryl Gane on the ground through the final three rounds of their five round main event Saturday night in Anaheim, Calif. to win a unanimous decision. Gane started well using quick footwork to avoid the champion mixing sharp jabs and low kicks to keep the hard hitting Ngannou off balance. When they got close, he tied Ngannou up in clinches that neutralized the champion's massive knockout power.
