ONE Fighting Championship returns next week for ONE FC 13: Moment of Truth in Manila, Philippines.
The fight card, featuring a previously announced Featherweight championship headliner, is now complete with nine contests. Honorio Banario (8-2) is set to rematch Koji Oishi (24-9-10) for the promotion’s 145-lbs strap, plus a highly intriguing Lightweight battle ensues between former Strikeforce vet Caros Fodor (8-3) and Muay Thai extraordinaire, Vuyisile Colossa (6-4).
Full fight card set for next week’s ONE FC 13: Moment of Truth
ONE FC 13: Warrior Spirit takes place December 6 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines. The night’s main card airs LIVE on Star Sports, and will be available for a price of USD $9.99 at http://www.onefc.livesport.tv/. Unlike previous events, though, prelims won’t be streamed on YouTube.
As you’d expect, it’ll be the Filipino fighters taking the limelight this time around. Following a woeful performance at ONE FC 9: Rise to Power where the Filipinos went 0-5, redemption will be on their minds as they head into this one.
The main card starts off with an intriguing Flyweight tilt between unbeaten PXC vet Eugene Toquero (4-0) and Team Lakay’s Geje Eustaquio (4-2). The victor could very well be in line for a shot at the promotion’s vacant 125-lbs strap. Eustaquio looks to get back in the win column following a loss to Andrew Leone while Torquero is set to make his first appearance under the ONE FC banner.
With Leandro Issa rumored to have signed with the UFC for the organization’s January Singapore card, his Bantamweight bout with Koetsu Okazaki (8-3-1) has been reportedly scratched from the fight card. WBC Asian Atomweight Women’s champ Jujeath Nagaowa (0-0) was expected to make her first pro Mixed Martial Arts appearance on this line-up, but her promotional debut has been delayed to 2014.
The rest of the main card will make up of popular Filipino MMA mainstays like Eduard Folayang (12-4) and Kevin Belingon (11-3).
Three prelims, which take place prior to the main card, will include a Heavyweight match-up between Paul Cheng (3-1) and Alain Ngalani (1-0), Flyweights Ruel Catalan (1-4) vs. Khim Dima (0-0) and Edward Kelly (5-0) vs. Major Overall (4-1) at 145-lbs.
