Belingon is the URCC Bantamweight Champion and is bringing a
lot of momentum into this bout. He fought courageously at ONE FC:
RISE TO POWER against veteran Masakatsu
Ueda in a back and forth battle but lost by a razor thin
decision. However, he holds impressive wins over Yusup Sadulaaev
and Vietnamese-Australian Thanh Vu in the
ONE FC cage. Renowned for his devastating striking and possessing
incredible speed and power, he can get in and out of range without
being taken down or countered and can inflict serious damage with
just a single strike. He has some of the most dangerous kicks in
the entire Bantamweight division and also has explosive takedown
and devastating ground and pound. But, his opponent will also be
looking to make a name for himself at ONE FC: MOMENT OF TRUTH.
Aranda Santacana is undefeated in MMA and hails from Barcelona,
Spain. He is known for his slick submissions having won eight of
his nine bouts by submission victory. It will be an exciting
match-up as Belingon’s world-class striking clashes with
Santacana’s impeccable ground game. It’s the hometown hero taking
on a brash newcomer who will not let anything, home-crowd or not,
stand in his way.
Fodor was one of the top Lightweights in Strikeforce where he
ran up an impressive record and was on course for a title shot.
Fodor made a spectacular ONE FC debut at ONE FC: CHAMPIONS &
WARRIORS in Jakarta, Indonesia, defeating Yang Seung Ho by
unanimous decision. A Muay Thai champion and submission grappling
champion, he has been in there with some of the best in the
business and wants to introduce himself to fight fans in Manila
with a stunning performance. His opponent is no stranger to tough
Colossa is one of the best stand-up fighters to ever compete in
MMA and the fact that most of his wins have come by way of KO
reflects his ultra-aggressive style. Colossa, who is based in Hong
Kong, has devastating low kicks and brutal knees as numerous
opponents have discovered to their cost. Colossa will want to
control this match with his world class Muay Thai but Fodor has an
iron chin and never backs down from a striking exchange which
should make for a thrilling fight for the ONE FC fans around the
Eustaquio is a Wushu Xanda champion who looked seasoned when he
defeated BJJ black belt Alex Silva
last year and fought the much more experienced Andrew Leone
at ONE FC: RISE TO POWER earlier this year. With his fantastic
cardio, he can attack relentlessly for the entire match if need be.
He has excellent Wushu and has shown a world-class submission
defense. He has a clear advantage in the striking exchanges but his
opponent will give him a challenge if the fight hits the
Toquero is 4-0 in MMA competition with all four of his wins
coming by way of TKO. He is one of the top prospects this year due
to his exciting style and determination to finish fights. Fans have
been waiting for him to make his ONE FC debut and now the time has
come for him to step up and prove himself on a world stage.
The first undercard bout of the night will see two Heavyweights
clash in what is expected to be a fistful of fireworks. Hong Kong
Ngalani is back in action after an impressive spin kick KO at
ONE FC: CHAMPIONS & WARRIORS that reverberated around the
world. He will have to bring his “A” game once again when he takes
on the “Typhoon” from North America, Paul Cheng.
Cheng is a former CFL football player who has had a successful
transition into MMA. Cheng is bent on an impressive debut when he
fights in Asia and ONE FC for the first time in his career.
The main event of the evening is a rematch for the ONE FC
Featherweight World Title when current champion Koji Oishi from
Japan takes on home town hero Honorio
