Aleksi Toivonen

ONE: Reign of Dynasties is just around the corner as ONE Championship returns on Friday, October 9.

In the co-main event, flyweights Aleksi "The Giant" Toivonen and Reece "Lightning" McLaren go toe-to-toe as they make a play for instant contendership status for the ONE Flyweight World Championship.


McLaren is one of the division's veterans. After a three-bout win streak, he came up short in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix but returned with a first-round submission against Gurdarshan Mangat at ONE: Mark of Greatness.

On the opposite side will be Toivonen, who is undefeated, and made an immediate impact in his ONE debut with a first-round submission. The Finnish grappler showcased his developing striking before sinking in the rear-naked choke against Akihiro Fujisawa.

A victory over McLaren will give Toivonen a strong claim to jump the line in the flyweight division, but the Aussie is not an easy out for anybody. Fans can expect a high-paced bout as each man looks to impose their will on the other.
