After the success of the latest ONE Championship event, ONE: Bad Blood, the Asian promotion is following it up with a colossal of an event.

Three champions, two former champions and one double champ grace the marquee of ONE: Full Circle.

With three title fights on the main card, this ONE Championship event looks to be the most high-profile of the year so far. It's right up there with ONE's ten-year anniversary show, ONE: X, happening in March.

On February 25, two-division ONE champion Reinier 'The Dutch Knight' de Ridder puts his middleweight belt on the line against ONE welterweight king Kiamrian 'Brazen' Abbasov in the main event.

In the two co-main events, we'll see championship fights in ONE's hard-hitting Super Series. ONE light heavyweight kickboxing champion, Roman Kryklia, will finally face Murat 'The Butcher' Aygun. Although the match has been rescheduled and delayed several times, the kickboxing behemoths have finally been cleared for their February 25 clash.

In the second co-main event, ONE featherweight Muay Thai champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee will face No.1 contender Jamal 'Kherow' Yusupov. The two warriors were supposed to fight for ONE's inaugural featherweight Muay Thai belt in 2020, but Yusupov had to pull out due to injury. Now, with the Russian fully healed, the two can finally lock horns.

With the event name being "Full Circle," we see a lot of highly-anticipated bouts that have been delayed and rescheduled to finally happen. One of the said bouts is the third dance between former middleweight champions 'The Burmese Python' Aung La N Sang and Vitaly Bigdash.

When the two first fought in 2017, Bigdash beat Aung La via a unanimous decision to retain his belt. In their rematch five months later, however, 'The Burmese Python' defeated Bigdash to become Myanmar’s first-ever world champion. A rubber match between the two is something fans can't wait to see.
