Arnaud Lepont Enjoys Baiting Shinya Aoki at the ONE Fighting Championship: 'Rise of Kings' Weigh In

James Goyder

ONE FC 6 weigh in results are in and everyone looks to be on target and ready for tomorrow's mixed martial arts (MMA) extravaganza in Singapore

The One FC: 'Rise of Kings' weigh in took place in Singapore this afternoon and the highlight was the antics of French fighter Arnaud Lepont who went to a lot of effort to bait Shinya Aoki.

The fight between the DREAM lightweight champion and Lepont will be the main event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium and Lepont stepped onto the stage holding book entitled 'Beating Aoki for Dummies'. He then proceeded to graffiti the photo of the Japanese fighter in the souvenir programs he was given to sign (see below).

Lepont will be an underdog but he seems determined to make the most of his moment in the spotlight as he was smiling and laughing and challenging his Japanese opponent to stand and trade with him instead of shooting for an immediate takedown. For his part Aoki looked determined and focussed and distinctly unimpressed with his opponents antics.

All the fighters made weight at the first attempt:
