A pair of former UFC Champions have been added to ONE FC 5: Pride of A Nation as Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver have both been giving fights on the bill.
A former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Arlovski (17-9) faces off with Soa Palelei (17-3). After a failed Strikeforce run, the Belarusian has quietly put together a pair of back-to-back KO wins in the Pro Elite Cage, taking out Ray Lopez and Travis Fulton. Palelei, a UFC veteran, is currently riding seven-straight wins, most recently taking out Bob Sapp in 12 seconds.
The original UFC Lightweight Champion, Jens Pulver (26-16-1) comes into the ONE FC cage going 2-2 in his last four fights. The former champion now faces undefeated Filipino featherweight prospect Eric Kelly (7-0). Pulver most recently defeated Jesse Thorton via unanimous decision this past April, while Kelly posted a unanimous decision victory against Bae Young Kwon at the Malaysian promotion’s fourth offering.
