Giorgio Petrosyan

ONE Championship returns on Friday, February 26, with a night of exciting martial arts action, and the co-main event features one of the pound-for-pound best strikers on the planet — Giorgio "The Doctor" Petrosyan.

The ONE Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Champion will meet Georgia's Davit Kiria in one of the featured contests of perhaps the year's best card thus far. From top-to-bottom, ONE: Fists Of Fury gives fans a who's who of the top names in the sport.

It will not be the first time these two have met in competition. Petrosyan currently holds a 1-0 advantage over the Georgian, but Kiria will want to even the score when it matters the most.

Kiria will be making his promotional debut against Petrosyan and has a golden opportunity to knock off one of the top names in the sport and make an immediate splash in the division. A multiple-time kickboxing World Champion, Kiria should not be overlooked in the matchup.

But undoubtedly, the focus will center around Petrosyan.

The entire division is jockeying for position to claim the World Title, and "The Doctor" resides in the top spot for now. The implications of this meeting are significant, and both men are ready to compete.

Ahead of the bout, watch this preview from ONE detailing the athlete's roads to ONE: Fists Of Fury in Singapore.

The Triller Fight Club pay-per-view platform has gained immense popularity recently by hosting pop culture-fueled boxing matches such as Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather and Jake Paul vs Tyron Woodley. They were back in action on Saturday night with a card that featured multiple MMA legends as Vitor Belfort challenged Evander Holyfield and Anderson Silva went toe-to-toe with Tito Ortiz in a boxing ring.

The first of these two bouts was the showdown between former UFC champions Ortiz and Silva. Ortiz came out swinging with a series of punches, but they were simply too slow for the elusive Silva. Silva ducked under a series of punches, connected with a hard right hand, and followed with the left to send Ortiz to the canvas. In just 81 seconds, Silva knocked out his fellow 46-year-old combatant and improved his boxing record to 3-1. Before Ortiz, Silva also defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. via split decision back in June.
