What is arguably Asia’s biggest organization is, once again, setting up camp in Manila for a stacked card featuring some top-shelf international talent.
In the main event, lightweight gold is on the line, as Martin Nguyen (12-3) returns after absolutely stunning Narantungalag Jadambaa in sensational fashion last time out.
He’ll be facing Japanese former Pancrase champion Koyomi Matsushima (11-3), who kicked down the doors in his ONE debut against Marat Gafurov.
Aussie Reece McLaren (12-6) brings his submission pedigree to tangle with Filipino Danny Kingad (12-1), and former UFC fighter Leandro Issa (17-7) is set for a dynamite showdown against Shooto and VTJ veteran Daichi Takenaka (11-1, 1 draw).
