NDO - The largest mixed martial arts tournament in Asia – ONE Championship – will come to Vietnam for the first time ever with its all-ONE Super Series card in Ho Chi Minh City on September 6.

According to the organisers, the Immortal Triumph features the participation of two Vietnamese fighters – Nguyen Tran Duy Nhat and Nguyen Thanh Tung in Vietnamese Super Series bouts.

Duy Nhat, the “monument” of Muay Thai Vietnam, will take on young Malaysian fighter Azwan Che Wil in the flyweight on the opening day of the ONE Championship tournament. Decorated Duy Nhat has dominated both domestic and international tournaments, with his peak being his victory over young Muay Thai star Victor Pinto at the Thai Fight Vietnam 2015. In 2019, Duy Nhat has also claimed two consecutive victories at the World Lethwei Championship.

Meanwhile, Thanh Tung will meet Pakistan’s Shahzaib Rindh in the featherweight category. Tung, though young, is also an experienced fighter with multiple medals at both national and international tournaments. He is one of the most remarkable Vietnamese Muay Thai fighters.

The highlight of the event will be the clash between ONE Bantamweight Muay Thai World Champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao and his latest challenger – Brice Delval.

The event is broadcast live to over 130 countries and territories around the world.
