Reece McLaren faces Aleksi Toivonen at ONE: ‘Reign of Dynasties’
Mclaren (13-7) is currently #5 in the ONE Championship flyweight rankings. He has fought ten times for the promotion and challenged for the bantamweight title in 2016.
He pushed bantamweight champion Bibiano Fernandes all the way en route to a split decision loss and dropped down a division the following year. The Australian is coming off a submission win over Gary Mangat at ONE: ‘Mark of Greatness’.
Prior to that Toivonen had been competing exclusively in Scandinavia. The Finnish fighter is undefeated in his MMA career although two of his fights have finished in no contests.
In Muay Thai action Sam-A Gaiyanghadao will be defending the strawweight title against Josh Tonna. Like Toivonen the Thai fighter is based at Evolve MMA in Singapore.
Mclaren and Tonna are currently in Australia. There is no confirmation on where this card will take place but they will need to obtain a travel exemption from the government if they want to leave the country.
