one fc winter warriors ONE Championship
ONE Championship has announced its final card for 2021. ONE: Winter Warriors II will take place on Friday, December 17, with a six-bout mixed martial arts event featuring many of the organization's top contenders.

In the main event, flyweight contenders Danny Kingad and Kairat Akhmetov will finally collide inside the Circle.

The two were initially slated to compete against one another in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix semifinals in 2019, but Akhmetov was forced to withdraw due to injury.

#2-ranked flyweight contender Kingad and #4-ranked Akhmetov have a lot to compete for when the door closes. As two of the top-five ranked contenders, a potential meeting with Adriano Moraes, a man both men have a history with, could be up for grabs.

Three former ONE World Champions will help line the card as well.

Former ONE Welterweight World Champion Zebaztian Kadestam will meet the undefeated Murad Ramazanov, former ONE Middleweight World Champion Vitaly Bigdash will try to upend Fan Rong, and former ONE Bantamweight World Champion Kevin Belingon will meet Kwon Won II in a possible show-stealing matchup.

In addition to those four contests, Team Lakay will send two more of their best men into battle.

Mark Stephen Loman will represent the Filipino gym against Yusup Saadulaev in a bantamweight matchup, and 19-year-old Jhanlo Mark Sangiao will show off the new wave of Team Lakay talent opposite Paul Lumihi.

ONE: Winter Warriors II will air across Bleacher Report platforms on Friday, December 17, at 7:30 a.m. EST/4:30 a.m. PST.

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.
