The sixth edition of ONE FC returns to Singapore on the sixth of October with six contestants pitted against each other in the promotion’s first Grand Prix Tournament.  Along with ONE FC fighters Kevin Belingon and Jens Pulver, the tournament sees a cross-section of talent coming from across the globe: DREAM’s Yusup Saadulaev, UFA’s Yan Fei Zhou, ROAD FC’s Min Jung Song, and Shootist Masakatsu Ueda fresh from Bellator.  The eventual winner of the tournament will face the first Bantamweight Champion, to be decided in a bout between Leandro Issa and Soo Chul Kim.  A second inaugural belt will be contested for in the Lightweight division between Kotetsu Boku and Zorobabel Moreira.

The preliminary bouts will feature two matches from local Southeast Asian talent in country-versus-country rivalries.  Melvin Manheof makes his anticipated return to the ONE FC cage to face another heavy-hitter, the Middleweight King of Pancrase Ryo Kawamura.  The card rounds out with a Superfight featuring Japan’s submission master Shinya Aoki versus gregarious up and comer Arnaud Lepont.
