According to MMA Fighting a welterweight Muay Thai fight has been added to the ONE on Prime Video 4 card. Cosmo Alexandre will take on Juan Cervantes with the former fighting for the first time in three years.
Alexandre was last seen knocking out Sage Northcutt at ONE: ‘Enter the Dragon’ in 2019. That was an MMA fight and the performance was impressive enough to put him in the title mix.
But he has not fought since and according to MMA Fighting the Brazilian had a visa issue which prevented him from travelling. He faces Cervantas, a Mexican fighting out of England who has also not fought for ONE Championship since 2019.

As previously announce Christian Lee is set to move up to welterweight to challenge Kiamrian Abbasov for the title. That fight will headline ONE on Prime Video 4 which is set to take place on Saturday morning (local time).
Abbasov recently moved up to middleweight to challenge Reinier de Ridder but was submitted by the Dutchman in the third round. That snapped a five fight winning streak for the 29 year old who remains the welterweight champion.
Lee recently avenged his controversial split decision defeat to Ok Rae Yoon. The 24 year old has won seven out of his last eight fights and beaten every single fighter in the top four at lightweight.

Meanwhile Rodtang Jitmuangnon will be defending his flyweight Muay Thai title against Joseph Lasiri. The Thai was scheduled to fight at ONE on Prime Video 1 but withdrew at the last minute. The reasons for this remain unclear and his opponent, Savvas Michael, accused him of not wanting to fight.
He has held the belt since 2019 and successfully defended it three times. Rodtang was booked to face Michael in the quarter final of the flyweight Muay Thai Grand Prix but has withdrawn from that tournament.

A bantamweight fight between top contenders Stephen Loman and Bibiano Fernandes is also on the ONE on Prime Video 4 card. The two men will face off at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 18th.
Fernandes is the former bantamweight champion. He lost the belt after being stopped by John Lineker but remains the #1 contender in the division.
Loman is ranked #4 after winning two fights out of two for ONE Championship. The former Brave bantamweight champion believes this could be a title eliminator.

Loman won’t be the only Team Lakay representative on the card. Former bantamweight champion Kevin Belingon will take on Kim Jae Woong at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on November 19th.
Belingon is on the worst run of results of his entire career. He has lost his last four but the 34 year old has enjoyed plenty of success, capturing the ONE Championship bantamweight belt in 2018.
Woong has been handed a very fast turnaround. He was submitted by Shamil Gasanov at ONE on Prime Video 3 last month and is coming off back to back defeats that have cost him his spot in the top five.
