Anderson Silva to compete in kickboxing at ONE: ‘Immortal Triumph’
Anderson Silva is among a host of additions to the now complete ONE: ‘Immortal Triumph’ card. The Brazilian kickboxer is booked to face promotional newcomer Beybulat Isaev in Ho Chi Minh City on September 6th.
Silva is one of the biggest fighters on the roster and he has made a big impression on the ONE Super Series. His battles with Tarik Khbabez and Aundre Meunier have both been extremely memorable, with the Brazilian stopping the latter but getting stopped by the former.
Isaev comes from a Muay Thai background but won’t be able to use his elbows in this bout. He is significantly less experienced than Silva and will be making his ONE Super Series debut in Vietnam.
As previously announced the card will be headlined by a bantamweight title match putting champion Nong-O Gaiyanghadao against challenger Brice Delval. In the co-main event reigning Lumpinee 147lbs champion Rafi Bohic faces Saemapetch Fairtex.
Meanwhile Vietnamese American atomweight Bi Nugyen will be hoping to make it a triumphant homecoming when she faces Puja Tomar in an atomweight Muay Thai bout.
