The fight card is nearly complete for next month's "ONE FC 6: Rise of Kings" event. |
New additions include a third title fight and a new bantamweight grand-prix bout.
ONE FC 6 takes place Oct. 6 at the 12,000-seat Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. The event is available live via online pay-per-view for $9.95. It's also available later in the day via delay on traditional U.S. PPV for $29.95.
Honorio Banario (7-1), the lightweight champion of the Phillippines-based URCC, will fight for ONE FC's inaugural featherweight title, though an opponent hasn't been finalized. Since turning pro in early 2010, he's registered seven stoppages in seven career wins. His lone defeat came to Bae Young Kwon at ONE FC 2.
Previously announced participant and big-show Melvin Manhoef (25-9-1) also now has an opponent for ONE FC 6. He takes on fellow middleweight Ryo Kawamura (15-6-4), who holds Pancrase's middleweight and light-heavyweight title. He's undefeated (3-0-2) in his past five fights, which included a recent soccer-kick KO of Shungo Oyama.
ONE FC 6 also has a new bout for the opening round of the eight-man bantamweight grand prix: Kevin Belingon (9-2), a URCC champion who opened his career 9-0 before back-to-back ONE FC losses to Masakazu Imanari and Soo Chul Kim, takes on Yusup Saadulaev (9-1), who fights for the first time since a pair of 2011 DREAM appearances.
