This card is headlined by a flyweight Muay Thai scrap between Taiki Naito and Jonathan Haggerty. These are two very good Muay Thai fighters with a lot of experience under their belt. The co-main event will see a lightweight kickboxing scrap go down between Nieky Holzken and Elliot Compton. This fight could decide who fights next for the ONE Lightweight Kickboxing Title.

Last week I went 5-2 on my ONE: Big Bang predictions. How will I do this week?
