Giorgio Petrosyan will rematch Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy in the main event of ONE Championship: Masters of Destiny, while Angela Lee will give the strawweight division another go.

On Friday, ONE Championship officials announced their return to Malaysia this July. ONE Championship: Masters of Destiny will take place July 12 in Kuala Lumpur’s Axiata Arena. The show will be headlined by a rematch between Giorgio Petrosyan and Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy, after the result of their ONE Super Series Featherweight Kickboxing World Grand Prix Quarter-Final bout at Enter the Dragon last month was overturned.

The result was changed to a No Contest when ONE’s Competition Committee ruled the referee did not control illegal clinching during the bout.

The real head-turner of the show, however, will be the return of ‘Unstoppable’ Angela Lee (9-1) — once again trying her hand at strawweight. The ONE atomweight champion challenged Xiong Jing Nan in an attempt to move up and claim a second title earlier this year at ONE Championship: A New Era. However, she came up short that night in Tokyo. Rather than head back to atomweight, however, Lee will take another crack at the strawweight division when she meets Michelle Nicolini (5-2) of Brazil. Nicolini last competed in November, losing to Tiffany Teo. However, she’s 3-1 overall under the ONE banner.
