ONE Championship has announced the full lineup for its upcoming ONE: For Honor card, which will go down on May 3 inside Jakarta, Indonesia’s Istora Senayan.

As previously announced, the card will be topped by a ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Title bout between Thai champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao and English challenger Jonathan Haggerty.

The newly announced co-main event will see former UFC middleweight title challenger Yushin Okami debut in the ONE Championship cage, where he will battle surging ONE welterweight contender Kiamrian Abbasov.

At 20-4 overall, Kyrgyzstan’s Abbasov represents a dangerous debut for the UFC veteran. “Brazen” last fought in December, when he submitted former ONE welterweight title challenger Agilan Thani in the first-round.

Yushin Okami, 35-12-0, also last fought in December when he was defeated by Alexey Kunchenko in the UFC’s Octagon.

Other highlights of this ONE: For Honor card include the ONE Championship debut of LFA and DWTNCS veteran Thanh Le, and appearances from ONE stars like Marat Gafurov, Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol and Keanu Subba.
