ONE Fight Night 23 gets a change in the headliner as Ok Rae Yoon takes on Alibeg Rasulov on July 5 in Bangkok. The bout will be 5 rounds for the interim lightweight MMA world title per sources.

Sources tell Cageside Press that the winner will face ONE lightweight MMA champion Christian Lee.

Jackie Buntan suffered an injury so her fight with Anissa Meksen is now off per ONE Championship.

Ok (17-4) is coming off a decision victory over Lowen Tynanes in May 2023. A victory over Rasulov at ONE Fight Night 23 will earn him the chance to complete the trilogy with Lee. The two have fought twice before exchanging the lightweight title going 1-1 in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

Rasulov (13-0) meanwhile looks to continue his undefeated streak in his ONE debut against Ok. A victory would fast track the 31-year-old lightweight to a title shot against Lee.

The rest of the card in Bangkok lines up as follows:

  • Ok Rae Yoon vs. Alibeg Rasulov – Interim Lightweight MMA Title
  • Tye Ruotolo vs. Jozen Chen – Submission Grappling
  • Nico Carillo vs. Saemapetch Fairtex – Muay Thai
  • Kang Ji Won vs. Kirill Grishenko – MMA
  • Luke Lessei vs. Bampara Kouyate – Muay Thai
  • Tatsumitsu Wada vs. Xie Wei – MMA
  • Ali Saldoev vs. Black Panther – Muay Thai
  • Hiroba Minowa vs. Jeremy Miado – MMA
