LIGHTWEIGHT AND BANTAMWEIGHT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE MATCHES ANNOUNCED FOR ONE FC: RISE OF KINGS

PhilBoxing.com


PLUS: ONE FC BANTAMWEIGHT GRAND PRIX TOURNAMENT KICKS OFF WITH ANNOUNCEMENT OF FIRST TWO BOUTS

CATCH ALL THE ACTION LIVE ON PAY-PER-VIEW IN THE USA OR AROUND THE WORLD AT WWW.ONEFC.COM/LIVESTREAM


18 September 2012 – Singapore: ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC) announced today that for the first time in the organization’s history, two World Championship titles will be contested for at ONE FC: RISE OF KINGS on 6 October. The World Championship Title Fights will be for the ONE FC Lightweight World Champion and the ONE FC Bantamweight World Champion titles. Brazilian submission expert Zorobabel “Zoro” Moreira takes on top Japanese Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) veteran Kotetsu Boku for the Lightweight crown and BJJ World Champion Leandro Issa battles former RisingOn Champion Soo Chul Kim when ONE FC heads back to Singapore Indoor Stadium on Saturday, 6 October.

CEO of ONE Fighting Championship™ Victor Cui stated, “We are coming back to Singapore to put on one of the greatest fight cards in Asian MMA history. The Lightweight and Bantamweight divisions of ONE FC are both incredibly stacked with the largest roster of Asian champions. Moreira, Boku, Issa and Kim have proven that they are the best and most exciting prospects in the divisions and we are giving them the chance to earn themselves a World Championship Title Belt. Each fighter understands the magnitude of a ONE FC World Championship Title being on the line and I expect each fighter will look to win impressively come 6 October. Also, the pool of talented Bantamweight fighters in Asia is fast increasing and I decided the best way to start choosing contenders for the title in the Bantamweight division was by putting on an eight-man Bantamweight Grand Prix. We are bringing the best of the best from all over Asia and the world for the start of this historic tournament.”

The Bantamweight eight-man Grand Prix kicks off with American MMA legend Jens Pulver taking on China’s rising star Zhao Ya Fei while Korean slugger Min Jung Song clashes with Japan’s very own Masakatsu Ueda. The Grand Prix will culminate in late 2013 where the finalists will contend for the title.

ONE FC: RISE OF KINGS will be available on Pay-Per-View in the United States on 6 October at 9:00 PM ET/6:00 PM PT on iN DEMAND, Avail-TVN, DIRECTV and DISH for a suggested retail price of US$29.95.

Fans from around the world can witness the action online via live streaming at www.onefc.com/livestream. The first two undercard fights are available for viewing free-of-charge and the main card fights will be available for purchase at just US$9.99.

Tickets for ONE FC: RISE OF KINGS are now on sale at SISTIC (www.SISTIC.com.sg). Ticket categories begin with the full Red Carpet and Cage-side experience for VIPs at $348 followed by Arena $148, Terrace $68 and Balcony $38.
