In the last few minutes, ONE Championship CEO Chatri Sityodtong has announced that ONE: Inside The Matrix, which is set for October 30th, will feature four title fights.

The other two title fights will see Christian Lee defend his lightweight title against Iuri Lapicus, which was originally scheduled for May, and Xiong Jingnan defending her strawweight title against Tiffany Teo, who earned her shot at the title by beating Ayaka Miura at ONE: King Of The Jungle in February.
