A doubleheader of events from ONE Championship in August will kick off with an MMA title fight at the 155-pound limit.
ONE Featherweight Champion Thanh Le is scheduled to face rising contender Tang Kai at the promotion’s August 26th event, “ONE 160,” per an announcement made Friday.
Le will be aiming to keep his undefeated ONE run intact in the appearance, and will also look to defend his belt for the second time.
Le has finished all five of his opponents since joining the promotion in 2019. He earned champion status in 2020 with a third-round victory over Martin Nguyen, catching him with strikes.
Le defended his belt for the first time earlier this year, handing grappling ace Garry Tonon his first pro loss in just 56 seconds.
Tang is getting the title opportunity after a steady climb up the promotional ranks.
Tang has picked up six wins in ONE, including three via finish. His last performance was earlier this year when he stopped Kim Jae Woong in the first round with punches.
One day after ONE 160, the promotion will make its U.S. debut on Amazon Prime Video. That card will feature a championship rematch between Adriano Moraes and former UFC titleholder Demetrious Johnson.
No other fights are known for ONE Championship’s August 26th card currently.
