ONE Championship Adds Strawweight Title Fight to ‘Pride of Lions’

ONE: Pride of Lions is set for the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Nov. 13 and the co-main event will feature the first title defense of newly crowned 115-pound champion Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke.

The Thai will be taking on Yago Bryan in a battle between two undefeated champions. The Brazilian won the Shooto South American 115-pound belt in his most recent fight, meaning that both men are coming off title winning efforts.

Dejdamrong (5-0) is a veteran of over 300 Muay Thai fights, who only began training MMA in 2014. He quickly took ONE Championship’s 125-pound division by storm, stopping his first four opponents to earn a title shot in the strawweight division.

The Thai took on Roy Doliguez at ONE: Warrior’s Quest in May and dominated the Filipino for the best part of five rounds before winning a technical decision late in the fifth. It took less than year from making his MMA debut for Dejdamrong to become a champion.
