ONE Fighting Championship has announced the full line-up for its 10th installment, which goes down September 13th at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Officials confirmed the match-ups with MMASucka.com.
Four additional bouts complete ONE FC 10: Champions & Warriors fight card
ONE FC 10: Champions & Warriors is set to be headlined by a 125-lbs clash between top contenders Andrew Leone (6-2)and Shinichi Kojima (13-5-5). The co-main event pits two sluggers looking to get back in the win column, as Kotetsu Boku (20-8-2) takes on striking extraordinaire, Vuyisile Colossa (5-4).
Fans in Asia can catch all the action live on STAR Sports. Fans from around the world can witness the action online via LIVE streaming at www.onefc.livesport.tv. The main card fights will be available for purchase at just US$9.99, following free prelims on YouTube.
Four additions to the fight card were officially announced today, following past announcement(s) of match-ups by MMASucka.com.
One of which features Mahmoud Hassan (1-1) taking on Alain Ngalani (0-0) at Heavyweight. The latter is a 2-time Muay Thai world champion, and the brother of fellow fighter James Kouame, who will also be fighting on the same fight card against Evolve MMA’s Jake Butler. Despite honing the craft of striking, however, Ngalani has never fought in a professional MMA bout thus far. His latest venture will be put to the test on September 13th as his opponent, Hassan, looks to capitalize on experience.
Another fighter from Evolve MMA is set to grace the ONE FC cage as well, as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion Almiro Barros (0-0) looks to have a successful professional MMA debut against Kian Pham, a fighter of Australian and Vietnamese descent. Pham (6-7) is a veteran of Australia-based Cage Fighting Championship, and has seen his fair share of ups and downs in his past few outings.
Long Sophy (0-0) will be making history in Jakarta, being the first fighter out of Cambodia to compete under the ONE FC banner. But as monumental as that sounds, his task will not be an easy one. He will be up against the challenge of upsetting the odds against the Indonesian-born and favorite, Max Metino (0-0).
The last addition to the fight card may in fact be a bout that most MMA fans would be looking forward to. Yang Seung Ho (6-0), commonly known as ‘Tommy’ Yang, will be putting his unscathed record on the line as he takes on AMC Pankration staple, Caros Fodor (7-3). Fodor might be familiar to most people, having competed for both Strikeforce and the UFC. Yang Seung Ho, in the meantime, is a native of Phuket Top Team, who has long been considered as one of the top prospects from South Korea.
CEO of ONE Fighting Championship Victor Cui stated, “ONE FC will be back in Jakarta on 13 September with an exciting fight card that is sure to keep the Indonesian fans on the edge of their seats. The card will be headlined by a Flyweight bout between Shinichi Kojima and Andrew Leone. The four bouts added today feature champions from all over the world and is testament to the depth of ONE FC’s roster. Packed from top to bottom with exciting fights this fight card promises fans in Istora Senayan a night of adrenalin-pumping world-class MMA action. Don’t miss it!”
