Josh Tonna looks for a shocking upset over Sam-A Gaiyanghadao

When the Reign of Dynasties card was announced, the most eye-catching inclusion was Josh Tonna as Sam-A Gaiyanghadao's next challenger to his strawweight muay thai world championship.

Our global stars are BACK for ONE: REIGN OF DYNASTIES, as Sam-A puts his Strawweight Muay Thai World Title on the line against top contender Josh Tonna! 🙌 @ReeceMclaren91 @amirkhanmma #WeAreONE #ONEChampionship https://t.co/tK06guo0za

Tonna, who is 2-1 with the promotion and defeated No.4-ranked Andy Howson last February in his first muay thai match with ONE, wasn't even ranked as one of their Top Five strawweight muay thai fighters until recently. His quick rise to the top now has him in a title match against one of the most decorated competitors at ONE in Sam-A.

The Thai has an astounding 369-47-9 record, while Tonna comes in as the far less experienced fighter at just 34-17.


Undefeated Aleksi Toivonen looks to break into flyweight rankings

He may only have one match to his name at ONE, but 7-0 Aleksi Toivonen is the real deal. Having defeated all of his opponents by submission, including six of them in the first round, the Finn is ready to get back in the cage after a 15-month layoff because of injury.

His biggest test yet comes against No. 5-ranked flyweight Reece McLaren, who's a submission specialist in his own right. The ONE veteran is 6-4 with the promotion and is coming off a statement first-round win over Gary Mangat.

This has potential to be fight of the night. Will Toivonen continue his dominance and earn a spot in the rankings, or does the veteran savviness of McLaren prevail?
