Svirid will face Vitaly Bigdash in the headline bout, with more fights to be announced in the coming days and weeks.
“Shanghai will be ONE Championship’s next destination and we are excited to bring our world-class brand of MMA action to the colorful city of Shanghai,” ONE CEO Victor Cui said. “Shanghai is the largest city in China by population and as such, it serves as the perfect setting for our second event in the country.
