Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke will defend his strawweight championship in the main event of ONE 42: Kingdom of Champions.
Officials announced the card for May 27 from the Impact Arena in Muang Thong Thani. It marks the first-ever show to go down in Thailand.
No opponent was announced for Amnuaysirichoke, who is 6-0 and the first Thai national to claim a world title in MMA history.
“I have waited a long time for this,” Amnuaysirichoke said. “Coming home to Thailand and performing in front of my people has always been my greatest dream. Now, it’s become a reality.
“I vow to protect the title and bring the belt back home to Bangkok again as champion. It is an honor and a privilege to receive this opportunity.”
More bouts are expected to be announced in the coming days.
