Asian MMA powerhouse ONE Championship will top it’s return to Bangkok, Clash of Legends, with Muay Thai action between Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and Han Zi Hao.

The upcoming ONE Championship: Clash of Legends card has its main event set. Taking place at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand on February 16, 2019, Clash of Legends will be topped by a battle between Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and Han Zi Hao for the inaugural ONE Super Series Muay Thai Bantamweight World Title.

Promotion officials announced the booking on Friday. 32-year old Nong-O holds a Muay Thai record of 257-54-1, and was key to the launch of the ONE Super Series, which has seen the mixed martial arts promotion branch out into single discipline action. He has won both his contests under the ONE banner to date.

In his last outing for the promotion, he earned a unanimous decision against Mehdi Zatout at ONE Championship: Kingdom of Heroes.

23-year old Han Zi Hao, a Mad Muay Thai Gym athlete with a record record of 60-15, will be standing between Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and the belt. For Han, it will no doubt be the toughest test of his career. He’ll be fighting Nong-O in the Thai fighter’s home country, though Han himself lives and trains out of Thailand.

No other bouts were announced for ONE Championship: Clash of Legends Friday, but the promotion noted they anticipate more announcements in the coming days/weeks.
