ONE Championship is brining former Lightweight World Champion Shinya Aoki to the May 26 event in Singapore; however, the “Tobikan Judan” won’t be lacing up the mixed martial arts (MMA) gloves.
Instead, the longtime grappling phenom will be challenging IBJJF World and Pan American Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion Garry Tonon in a grappling “super fight” inside Singapore Indoor Stadium, on a card headlined by Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee vs. Istela Nunes.
“Shinya Aoki is considered probably the greatest grappler in all of mixed martial arts. His ability to scientifically break down opponents on the mat is nothing short of legendary in the industry,” said Victor Cui, CEO of ONE Championship.
“At the same time, Garry Tonon is known as one of the most exciting Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitors in the world. The Aoki-Tonon Grappling Super-Match is certainly a matchup that fans will not want to miss.”
Ticket information for ONE: “Dynasty of Heroes” is available at www.onefc.com.
