Ben Askren headlines ONE Championship card in Shanghai against Zebaztian Kadestam

Ben Askren ONE Championship

The ONE Championship welterweight title will be on the line when undefeated champion Ben Askren takes on Zebaztian Kadestam in the main event at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center in Shanghai, China on Sept. 2.

Askren (16-0, 1 no-contest) last defended his belt in May, stopping Agilan Thangalapani in the first round. That victory marked his third first-round finish in five bouts since signing with ONE.

Kadestam (9-3) has only fought once under the ONE banner. He stopped longtime MMA veteran Luis Santos with a vicious third-round knockout, and it was enough to earn a title shot.

ONE Championship also added the following bouts to the card.

Narantungalag Jadambaa vs. Tetsuya Yamada
Miao Li Tao vs. Liu De Li
Xu Chun Yan vs. Eh Ya Nut
Chen Geng Min vs. Peng Xue Wen
Sagetdao Petpayathai vs. Mahmoud Mohamed
Miao Jie vs. Mona Samir
Amir Khan vs. Jaroslav Jartim
Zhang Ze Hao vs. Li Cheng Chao
Marc Marcellinus vs. Tran Quang Loc
