The full fight card for ONE 157 is out. In total there will be 16 bouts at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 20th.
The majority of those contests will be contested under either Muay Thai or kickboxing rules with just four MMA fights on the card. The promotion revealed the full line up for the event just now:
ð¥ ONE 157 FIGHT CARD ð¥ Get ready for two Muay Thai World Titles and the first round of the ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Grand Prix!ð Plus, BJJ phenoms Kade and Tye Ruotolo make their ONE submission grappling debuts against Shinya Aoki and Garry Tonon! #ONE157 | 20 May pic.twitter.com/whnes4DdPM

Among the new additions to the card is a kickboxing contest pitting Davit Kiria against Mohammed Boutasaa. The Georgian reached the semi final of the featherweight kickboxing Grand Prix but was eliminated by Sittichai Sitsongpeenong.
Kiria is a former Glory lightweight champion. But he has lost two out of his three ONE Championship fights, even if the defeats did come at the hands of living legends Sittichai and Giorgio Petrosyan.
Boutasaa is an up and coming star who has reportedly won all 15 of his fights to date. But the 22 year old, who has Moroccan roots but is fighting out of The Netherlands, will be significantly less experienced than his opponent.
