Gafurov (15-0) has won 10 of his 15 career fights by submission, including a win over Nguyen at ONE Championship: Odyssey of Champions in 2015. The 32-year-old is coming off a first-round submission victory over Narantungalag Jadambaa at ONE Championship: Defending Honor in November. Nguyen (8-1) has won four straight fights by stoppage since his loss to Gafurov, including three wins by TKO. The 28-year-old has never gone the distance in his nine-fight career.
