ONE Fighting Championship 13 “Moment of Truth” weigh ins were held at Resorts World Manila, and the entire cast passed for smooth sailing on December 6, 2013.
ONE FC 13 is headlined by a Featherweight Championship rematch between reigning champ Koji Oishi and former champ Honorio Banario. In their previous meeting, Banario scored heavily with a knock down at the end of the first round that looked to be a finisher and would see him keep his belt. But Oishi recovered and came back to finish Banario with punches in the second. Both men have tasted blood and gold; they will certainly not let the judges determine which of them walks away with the prize this time.
At the top of the main card, Kevin Belingon, a true hero of Filipino MMA, faces another tough opponent in undefeated David Aranda Santacana. Belingon is only getting smarter as he progresses and with recent wrestling training, should show even more of a well-rounded game. Santacana has slick submission skills that he should be on the lookout for.
A full preview of the remainder of the card can be read here. ONE FC 13 will be live on STARSports in Asia, and the entire card will also be available live on pay per view at www.onefc.livesport.tv here.
