ONE NextGen II ONE Championship
Top-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Saemapetch Fairtex will put that #1 ranking on the line in the main event of ONE: NextGen II, a previously recorded event, on Friday, November 12, as ONE Championship emanates from the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Saemapetch is on a three-bout win streak inside the Circle as he attempts to work his way to a rematch against ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghado.

The Thai star was near that goal when he advanced to the ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai Tournament finals earlier in 2021. However, he was forced to withdraw from the final bout and must now reaffirm his standing in the division.

Making his organizational debut in ONE Super Series Muay Thai action, Rittewada Petchyindee Academy will try to take over that top spot with an impressive upset in the main event.

Rittewada is closing in on 100 career victories, and none would be more important than the main event of ONE: NextGen II. If he can upset the current #1-ranked bantamweight Muay Thai contender Rittewada would turn the division on its head.

The main event will help set the stage for an incredible 2022 in the red hot bantamweight division. Can Saemapetch earn his long-awaited rematch, or will Rittewada seize the day with a monumental upset?

Fans should expect a hard-hitting clash in Singapore that will close out another diverse night of martial arts action.

ONE: NextGen II airs across all Bleacher Report platforms on Friday, November 12, at 8:30 a.m. EST/5:30 a.m. PST.

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.
