ONE FC’s return to their home in Singapore for their eighth promotional offering has seen a pair of bouts added to bill as Eddie Ng takes on Arnaud Lepont in the lightweight division, the card will also see bantamweights Leandro Issa and Yusup Saadulaev do battle.
ONE FC 8: Kings & Champions takes place at the Singapore Indoor Arena in April. Bloody Elbow first reported the news.
Ng (5-1) has looked unstoppable since coming to ONE FC, taking three consecutive stoppage victories in under 60 seconds. “The Magician” has not competed since ONE FC 3 last March. Lepont (9-2) is looking to rebound from an 85-second submission at the hands of Shinya Aoki. Prior to that loss, the Frenchman was on a six-fight run.
Leandro Issa (10-3) and Yusup Saadulaev (9-2) are both looking to get back on the winning side of things after ONE FC 6 losses to Soo Chul Kim and Kevin Belingon respectively. The loss to Kim snapped a seven-fight win-streak for “Bodinho”. Saadulaev knocked out Japanese legend Hideo Tokoro with a vicious slam at DREAM’s 2011 New Year’s Eve show before falling to Belingon.
