A Lightweight tilt between Evolve MMA’s Eddie ‘The Magician’ Ng and Muayfit’s Arnaud ‘The Game’ Lepont has been added to the upcoming ONE FC 8: Kings & Champions fight card.
As previously reported, this event goes down on April 5th at the Singapore Indoor Stadium situated in Singapore. A Lightweight championship match-up between champion Kotetsu ‘No Face’ Boku (20-7-2) and grappling maestro Shinya Aoki (32-6) is set to be the featured attraction of the night.
ONE FC CEO, Victor Cui, took to twitter once again to announce the latest addition to the ONE FC 8 fight card:
#Breakingnews #ONEFC April 5 in Singapore: Fan fav @ArnaudLepont vs Hong Kong sensation @Eddie_Magician @EvolveMMA @muayfit CONFIRMED.”
Eddie Ng (5-1) is on a tear with a 3-fight win streak, and is unbeaten in his stint with the Singapore-based promotion. The Hong Kong-native has never made it past the 1st round in all of his bouts thus far, and has finished all of his fights by either TKO or submission.
Arnaud Lepont (9-2), in the meantime, had his 6-fight win streak snapped by Eddie’s training partner Shinya Aoki at ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings last year. The Frenchman trains out of the esteemed Muayfit camp, and will be looking to get back in the win column once again.
With that said, here’s the updated fight card for ONE FC 8: Kings & Champions:
- Kotetsu Boku vs. Shinya Aoki (For ONE FC Lightweight strap)
- Arnaud Lepont vs. Eddie Ng
