ONE Championship will bring ONE: Reign of Dynasties II to the masses on Friday, October 16, with a six-bout event that will deliver more high-level excitement to fans around the world.

The event was previously recorded in Singapore and features Chinese athletes in each of the six contests. It will mark an opportunity for the athletes from China to deliver on a global stage and make their mark in their respective divisions.

The main event will be a ONE Super Series contest in the bantamweight division.


Former title challenger "Muay Thai Boy" Zhang Chenglong welcomes former Hiroki Akimoto to the division as he eyes a rematch with Alaverdi "Babyface Killer" Ramazanov. However, Akimoto will try to make an immediate impact with a show-stealing performance.

What's going to happen to you physically and emotionally in a real fight where you could be injured or killed? Will you defend yourself immediately, hesitate during the first few critical seconds of the fight, or will you be so paralyzed with fear that you won't be able to move at all? The answer is - you won't know until you can say, "Been there, done that." However, there is a way to train for that fearful day.

The man who apparently launched a racist verbal attack on U.S. women's kata champion Sakura Kokumai earlier this month in a California park has been arrested following a physical assault on an elderly Korean-American couple in the same park Sunday. Michael Vivona is accused of punching a 79-year-old man and his 80-year-old wife without provocation.

Mynewsla.com reported that a group of people playing basketball in Grijalva Park at the time of the assault recognized Vivona from his previous harassment of Kokumai and surrounded him until a nearby police officer arrived to make an arrest. The incident with Kokumai, who is slated to represent the United States in this summer's Tokyo Olympics, gained widespread notice after she posted a video of it on social media in an effort to increase awareness about the growing threat of anti-Asian racism.
