ONE Championship on Wednesday announced that it has added three more matches to its ONE: No Surrender fight card, which marks the promotion's return since the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The fight card will be held on July 31 in Bangkok, Thailand.

ONE added two mixed martial arts bouts and one Super Series bout to the event.

ONE atomweight Muay Thai world champion Stamp Fairtex of Thailand will face Sunisa "Thunderstorm" Srisen, also of Thailand. Mark "Tyson" Fairtex Abelardo of the Philippines and New Zealand will face off against Fabricio "Wondery Boy" Andrade of Brazil.

Thai stars Panpayak Jitmuangnon and Superlek Kiatmoo9 lock horns in a ONE Super Series Muay Thai contest with four ounce gloves.

"It feels good to get back into training full swing, and of course, I'm happy to be fighting again after taking a break for a few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic," said Fairtex. "I'm excited to get in the ring with my opponent."

"I've studied her style from her previous fights. She's strong, and she has very good speed. I'll see what I can do in this fight. It's definitely a worthy challenge," she added.

ONE has previously announced that reigning ONE flyweight muay Thai champion Rodtang "The Iron Man" Jitmuangnon will defend his title against former ONE flyweight kickboxing world champion Petchdam Petchyindee Academy.
