CEO of ONE Championship™, Victor Cui, stated, “We are ecstatic that we have put together a fantastic fight card for Chinese fight fans. In the main event, we have two international stars squaring off as the hard-hitting Timofey Nastyukhin of Russia takes on Yusuke Kawanago of Japan. We also have a flyweight and a featherweight tournament in place to determine the best prospects to come out of the mainland. Get ready for an evening of world-class mixed martial arts!”
Timofey Nastyukhin announced his arrival on the global stage with a devastating knockout of Eduard Folayang at ONE: WARRIOR’S WAY last December. After a series of ferocious striking exchanges, Nastyukhin landed a perfectly timed flying knee on Folayang, effectively ending the bout in just one round. The knockout is considered by most as one of the best knockouts of 2014. He now returns to action against a fellow striker. Nastyukhin will take on the tough Yusuke Kawanago.
Yusuke Kawanago is a featherweight contender with a record of 13 wins and 4 losses. His well-rounded skills have brought him success in the sport, racking up wins in other promotions before making his ONE Championship debut against Rob Lisita last May 2014. Kawanago’s vast experience makes him a formidable opponent for any fighter. He’ll try to derail the fast rise of Nastyukhin in his next bout.
Zorobabel Moreira is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion and a 3rd degree black belt under Carlos Gracie Junior. He has only been to a decision once in 10 professional bouts and has defeated some of the best lightweights in the world. Moreira returns to the ONE cage after being seen in an epic battle with Koji Ando at ONE: BATTLE OF LIONS last November. This time Moreira faces Christian Holley in a matchup of top lightweights.
Originally from England, Christian Holley spent most of his life in Spain having moved there when he was five years old. He has finished 8 of the 11 opponents he has faced thus far, all in impressive fashion. Having reached the pinnacle of the sport in Europe, Holley has set his sights on conquering the lightweight division in ONE. Looking to stake his claim among the top fighters in the division, Holley will be back in the ONE arena to face Brazillian Zorobabel Moreira.
Ruel Catalan of the Philippines is a Wushu practitioner and possesses a solid stand-up game to compliment his great matt skills. Catalan made a successful ONE Championship debut in a 2013 knockout win over Khim Dima and has since then gone 1-1 for the promotion. Known for his lightning quick flurries and his ability to draw opponents into intense striking battles, Catalan will look to take the fight directly to Marcos Santana.
Marcos Santana is originally from Brazil, but now resides in Singapore and is a member of the Evolve Fight Team. He is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion, winning numerous tournaments in his native Brazil. A holder of a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Santana will be making his ONE Championship debut against one of the best flyweights to emerge from the Philippines in Ruel Catalan.
