ONE Championship has just announced the complete bout card for ONE: Hero’s Dream, set for the Thuwunna Indoor Stadium on Friday, November 3.
Four Filipino fighters will be highlighted in the event.
Flyweight bout: Eugene Toquero vs. Ma Hao Bin
Top flyweight contender Eugene Toquero is a former celebrity martial arts and fitness coach from Manila, Philippines.
The 5’5” Filipino stalwart has a knack for executing highlight-reel striking techniques and is highly unpredictable, operating at a pace that opponents find difficult to keep up with. In his most recent bout, Toquero fell to rising star Stefer Rahardian of Indonesia, losing by unanimous decision in a tough contest.
Now Toquero seeks to get back in contention when he takes on Ma Hao Bin.
23-year-old Chinese national freestyle wrestling champion “The Southern Eagle” Ma Hao Bin (7-1) is unbeaten inside the ONE Championship cage.
Having made his professional debut in 2016, Ma took home the ONE: Dynasty of Champions (Changsha) Flyweight Tournament Championship, defeating Wu Ting Shen and Bu Huo You Ga in a single evening of action.
Strawweight bout: Jeremy Miado vs. Pongsiri Mitsatit
After six straight victories, including two highlight-reel finishes, Filipino strawweight Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado (6-1) took on countryman Robin Catalan in his most recent bout, but fell just short of victory, losing by split decision.
Miado is now ready to get back in the win column, and will face a rising star from Thailand in Pongsiri Mitsatit.
21-year-old Pongsiri “The Smiling Assassin” Mitsatit is an undefeated martial artist from Chiang Mai, Thailand, and was previously a North Thailand Muay Thai champion with a 72-17 record, which included 49 KOs. Since making his professional debut in the cage, the strawweight has amassed a stellar record of 8-0 with six knockout triumphs and one submission victory, and made an immediate impact in ONE Championship with first-round finishes over Ye Thway Ne and Rabin Catalan.
Featherweight bout: Burn Soriano vs. Chen Lei
Burn “The Hitman” Soriano of Ilocos Sur, Philippines, is coming off a tough contest against Malaysian Saiful Merican last February. The Filipino featherweight features an aggressive style, with solid power and seasoned grappling technique leading to all of his wins to date coming by way of stoppage.
His 15-second spinning back fist knockout of Indonesia’s Mario Sitya Wirawan in 2016 was one of the fastest finishes in ONE history, and he will be looking to replicate that accolade against Chen Lei in his next outing.
Unbeaten Chinese martial artist “Rock Man” Chen Lei of Changsha is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner and the Shanghai Open BJJ Champion. His submission prowess has led Chen to six straight victories as a professional. In his last bout, Chen continued his spectacular win streak with an armbar finish of Malaysia’s Saiful Merican.
Women’s Atomweight bout: Jomary Torres vs. Nita Dea
Jomary Torres, a martial artist representing Catalan Fighting System, is an unbeaten female atomweight talent from the Philippines. Armed with a complete set of striking and grappling skills, Torres is incredibly talented and determined to make a name for herself in ONE Championship. In her last bout, Torres scored a shocking upset victory over rising star Rika Ishige, winning via second-round rear naked choke to bring her cage record to 2-0.
She is now set to return to action against Indonesia’s Nita Dea.
Decorated Indonesian martial artist Nita Dea (0-1) first took up wrestling in high school, quickly becoming a two-time national wrestling champion. She has since added wushu, Muay Thai, and kickboxing to her arsenal, with three national wushu championships proving her aptitude and well-rounded ability.
