After a slow start One Fighting Championship is going full speed ahead booking the best fighters out there and making the sort of fights the fans want to see. The first four fights of the event which it is holding in Malaysia on June 23rd got announced this week and it just goes to show why One FC is already light years ahead of the competition in Asia.
Seems like Brazil vs Asian will be the theme for One FC's fourth installment with the first three fights that were released all containing this combination. Renato Sobral fights Tatsuya Mizuno in a fight fit to headline a big show, Leandro Issa fights Masakazu Imanari, and Gregor Gracie fights Adam Kayoom.
The fourth of the four fights announced is between Eddie Ng from Hong Kong and Arnaud Lepont from France. One FC has been getting steadily better, the first two events were OK but One FC 3 and One FC 4 are taking the matchmaking much closer to a UFC level although without losing the strong emphasis on local fighters.
The one name on this list which people might not recognize because he has never fought for One FC before is Kayoom but I did some checking up on him and was pleasantly surprised. This is one Malaysian who really knows martial arts and he has won his place on the card through merit not just nationality.
