Celest Hansen will be back in action at ONE Friday Fights 17. The Australian will be looking to continue with her recent run of good results at Lumpinee Stadium when she faces Dani Fall.
At ONE Friday Fights 6 in February she stopped Kalaked Por Muangpetch, earning a $10,000 USD bonus for her performance. Last year she won the Road to ONE tournament which was held in the same venue, competing as an atomweight.
This Friday the Australian returns to Lumpinee Stadium again to take on Fall. While Hansen has plenty of experience when it comes to fighting three rounders in MMA gloves it appears the English fighter has been competing in conventional Muay Thai.

As previously announced this card will feature catchweight contest pitting Yodlekpet Or Atchariya against Denis Puric. Both men will be required to weigh in at 138lbs while passing hydration tests which limit the amount of weight they can cut.
Puric was scheduled to fight Jacob Smith earlier this month but the fight was scrapped when the Englishman suffered an injury. Yodlekpet has fought twice for ONE Championship, winning both bouts inside the distance and picking up $10,000 USD bonuses on each occasion.
