Shinya Aoki (30-6) will not, in fact, be headlining August's "ONE FC 5: Pride of a Nation" event. |
Promotion officials today announced that the former DREAM champ is now slated to fight Arnaud Lepont (9-1) at "ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings."
The event takes place Oct. 6 at the 12,000-seat Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. Broadcast plans for the event are not yet official.
Additionally, ONE FC CEO Victor Cui announced that three title fights will grace "ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings."
"This card is going to be epic, and fans can expect to see some incredible fights come October," Cui stated in the release.
Also expected to appear at the event is DREAM and Strikeforce vet Melvin Manhoef (24-9) in addition to Zorobabel Moreira (7-1) and Radeem Rahman (1-0).
Additionally, the first three championship belts in ONE FC history will be up for grabs on the card, which is slated for October 6, 2012 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium located in Kallang, Singapore. |
"With the largest pool of the top MMA talent in Asia, I have decided that the time is perfect to introduce three ONE FC world titles," said ONE FC CEO Victor Cui. "This card is going to be epic and fans can expect to see some incredible fights come 6 October."
Weight classes for the trio of championship fights have yet to be finalized.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
