SINGAPORE - Singaporean Niko Soe is set to face Indonesian Stefer Rahardian at One Championship's Conquest of Kings event in Surabaya, Indonesia later this month.

The 24-year-old, who has a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) record of three wins and one loss, defeated Malaysia's Muhamad Haidar in 77sec via a first-round submission last November - showcasing a well-rounded skill set with a strong ground game.

His opponent Rahardian, unbeaten with six wins, is well known for his stellar submission game - he finished his opponent via a first round rear-naked choke in his One Championship debut last August.

The other addition to the July 29 event will be Filipino Danny Kingad who will fight 32-year-old debutant Hexigetu of China.

Kingad, unbeaten with five wins, is a former regional wushu champion.

Known for his striking, the 21-year-old's opponent is another hard-hitting fighter who has a professional record of four wins and two losses.

In addition to the card, One Championship is also set to hold the 2017 Surabaya Bantamweight Tournament, which will feature Indonesia's top martial arts talents as they battle it out for the distinction of being crowned tournament champion.

The main event will see reigning champion Kairat Akhmetov of Kazakhstan face interim titleholder Brazilian Adriano Moraes with the winner being crowned the undisputed One Championship flyweight world champion.
