Set for September 27 from the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia, the card will stream online via pay-per-view in North America.
Narantungalag (10-3), a 39-year-old Mongolian kickboxer, won the title last August over Koji Oishi via decision. He has yet to compete since, but is 10-1 in his last 11. Gafurov (11-0) is a former M-1 champion who has scored back-to-back wins in ONE.
