With only one crucial spot left to fill, ONE FC 5: “Pride of a Nation” is almost ready to roll with 11 announced bouts and one pending for the evening’s main event. It’s former DREAM lightweight champion Shinya Aoki (30-6) who finds himself currently looking at a question mark on the bill for his ONE FC debut.
Co-headlining the event is the promotional debut of former DREAM Featherweight and Bantamweight Champion Bibiano Fernandes as he faces off with Gustavo Falciroli (12-3).
A clash of former UFC Heavyweight Champions has also been added to the bill as Tim Sylvia (31-7) and Andrei Arlovski (17-9) will meet for the fourth time. Sylvia is currently up 2-1 on “The Pitbull”, and will look to put the coffin nails in what will likely be looked at as defining his career rivalry.
