ONE Championship Brings Angela Lee, Ben Askren, Shinya Aoki To FloCombat
The promotion will host ONE: Dynasty of Heroes live from Singapore, with the card streaming live in North America exclusively on FloCombat. ONE has held the mantle for the past several years as Asia's premier fight promotion, and the partnership with FloSports marks the organization's efforts to push for global expansion.
The event is set to be headlined by rising star and the promotion's atomweight champion Angela Lee, as "Unstoppable" will take on Brazil's Istela Nunes in the feature bout. The co-main event will feature the long awaited return of ONE welterweight champion Ben Askren, as he'll look to keep his undefeated record and streak of impressive title defenses intact against undefeated prospect Agilan Thani.

Another big highlight for ONE: Dynasty of Heroes is the featured grappling match between American jiu-jitsu ace Garry "The Lion Killer" Tonon, who will face former DREAM and ONE lightweight champion and Japanese superstar Shinya Aoki in a grappling super fight. Tonon is a multi-time IBJJF World Champion and will pit his aggressive attack against "Tobikan Judan" in a grappling match that promises to be can't-miss ruckus for fight fans and BJJ enthusiasts alike.
ONE CEO Victor Cui recently addressed the card in a press release to the media:
"We have an absolutely stacked card from top to bottom planned for Singapore, and it will be a night fans will not want to miss," he said. "Angela Lee, ever the true champion and warrior, just came off a thrilling performance a little over a month ago and she is already raring to get back inside the ONE Championship to perform for her hometown crowd. On the other side of the cage, Istela Nunes is ready to give Lee a stiff challenge as the division's top contender. Also, welterweight superstar Ben Askren is back and he's ready to welcome the young Agilan Thani to the upper echelon of the division."
