Pieter Buist faces Ruslan Emilbek at ONE: ‘NextGen’ Part III
ONE: ‘NextGen’ Part III will be broadcast on November 26th. The event will feature a lightweight fight between two men looking to bounce back from their first ever ONE Championship defeats.
Buist (17-5) saw his eight fight winning streak snapped by Timofey Nastyukhin at ONE: ‘Inside the Matrix’ Part II last November. That fight was a title eliminator but the Dutchman lost by decision to the Russian.
Emilbek (12-1) brought a perfect professional record into his ONE Championship debut. But it lasted just 90 seconds, that is hoe long needed to knock him out at ONE: ‘Fists of Fury’ Part II in March.
In the strawweight division Alex Silva will be fighting against a Catalan brother for the fourth time. The Brazilian has won all three of the previous fights by first round submission.
Silva (10-6) is coming off a decision win over Miao Li Tao at ONE: ‘Battleground’ Part II. The former strawweight champion turned 39 last month.
Catalan (9-7) was submitted by Ryuto Sawada at ONE: ‘Unbreakable’ Part III. The Filipino has won two out of his last four ONE Championship fights.
As previously announced Lito Adiwang faces Jarred Brooks in a strawweight fight on this card. There will also be several kickboxing and Muay Thai fights with Pongsiri PKSaenchaigym, Panpayak Jitmuangnon and Rodlek PKSaenchaigym all in action.
