Reigning ONE strawweight Muay Thai and kickboxing world champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao of Thailand will defend his Muay Thai title against top contender Josh “Timebomb” Tonna of Australia in the main bout of ONE; Reign of Dynasties, which will be streamed online through the ONE app and YouTube channel on Oct. 9.

The venue and the location will be confirmed and announced by ONE Championship later on.

In another bout, three-time European grappling champion Aleksi “The Giant” Toivonen of Finland will take on former ONE world title challenger and fifth-ranked flyweight contender Reece “Lightning” McLaren of Australia.

The event will also see the return of lightweight proponent Amir Khan, who is known for having the most knockout finishes in ONE Championship history, a record he shares with his Evolve teammate and reigning ONE lightweight world champion Christian “The Warrior” Lee.

Khan will take on rising Indian lightweight Rahul “The Kerala Krusher” Raju.

Also seeing action on the card is another of Khan’s Evolve stablemates in multiple-time Indonesian wrestling champion Eko Roni Saputra. Eko, a former Indonesian national athlete, is aiming for his third victory in the circle when he takes on promotional newcomer Murugan “Wolverine” Silvarajoo of Malaysia.

Multiple-time Lumpinee Stadium Muay Thai world champion and former inaugural ONE strawweight world champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke makes his highly anticipated return to action.

Dejdamrong will face China Top Team’s “Wolf of the Grasslands” Hexigetu in what should be another exciting matchup.

Lastly, Indian wrestling champion “The Indian Notorious” Roshan Mainam will look to build upon his recent success and add another victory to his record when he faces ONE Hefei Flyweight Tournament champion Liu Peng Shuai in the opening bout of the night.
