One Fighting Championship lightweight titleholder Kotetsu Boku will defend his crown against Japanese submission guru Shinya Aoki in the One FC 8 “Kings and Champions” main event on Friday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.
The main card -- which also features a middleweight scrap pitting Dutch knockout artist Melvin Manhoef against Brock Larson and a bantamweight clash pairing former UFC champion Jens Pulver with Masakatsu Ueda -- will stream live on pay-per-view at www.onefc.livesport.tv for a charge of $9.99. Sherdog.com will provide the free live stream for a pair of undercard bouts at 7 a.m. ET/4 a.m. PT, as Jake Butler meets Swain Cangco at 205 pounds and Yun Ting Chen faces Ronald Low at 125 pounds.
Butler wrestled collegiately at Princeton University and made his professional mixed martial arts debut at One FC 7 in February, as he defeated Antonio Romulo by first-round technical knockout. Cangco won his first two bouts under the Gorilla Warfare banner, but the Predator Combat representative has not competed since stopping Sully Stone on first-round punches in August 2010.
Low submitted Mohd Faizul Mohd Fozi in his first bout as a pro in September, delivering with a rear-naked choke at Ultimate Beatdown 10 “Heroes and Villains” in Malaysia. MMA rookie Chen will oppose him.
