Added to the bill of ONE FC 6, which takes place at the Singapore Indoor Arena on October 6, is a rematch between Leandro Issa and Soo Chul Kim, only this time the stakes have been upped as the bantamweights will scrap for the promotion’s 135 lb. title. Issa and Kim first met at ONE FC’s first offering in November of 2011, where the Brazilian took home a unanimous decision victory.
Issa (10-2) is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Japanese legend Masakatsu Imanari at ONE FC 4 this passed June. “Brodinho” will now look to replicate his success against Soo Chul Kim to become the the promotion’s first bantamweight champion.
Kim (6-4) is currently riding back-to-back victories. After blasting Shoko Sato at Road FC 8 in June, the Korean made a quick turnaround and earned a unanimous decision victory over Kevin Belingon at ONE FC 5 a little over two weeks ago. The Team Force product now has a chance to avenge his loss and take home the gold.
