The full fight card for ONE FC: "Return of Warriors" has been released and it features a flyweight fight between two of the best at that weight in Asia as undefeated Rey Docyogen takes on Japanese veteran Shinichi Kojima with the winner guaranteed a shot at the 125-pound belt.
A number one contender bout for the flyweight title will headline ONE FC: "Return of Warriors" as Rey Docyogen takes on Shinichi Kojima.
Docyogen holds a perfect MMA record of 10-0 and is the reigning URCC pinweight champion. Kojima was once ranked as the number one flyweight in the world and is a former Shooto champion best known for his trilogy with arch rival Mamoru Yamaguchi.
The final matchup in the ONE FC Bantamweight Grand Prix is also booked for February 2nd and Filipino Canadian former King of the Cage champion Ryan Diaz will be taking on up and coming Australian Vietnamese prospect Thanh Vu. The winner will join Jens Pulver, Kevin Belingon and Masakatsu Ueda in the semi finals.
Adam Kayoom's win over Gregor Gracie was one of the most memorable moments of the last ONE FC show in Malaysia and the welterweight, who was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, returns to take on experienced Indonesian Zuli Silawanto.
Vuyisile Colossa got his ONE FC career off to a flying start when he stopped Xing Yu Ma inside a minute in Singapore last year. Since then he has been competing for Road FC, scoring a stoppage win over Seok Mo Kim but dropping two decisions to Yui Chul Nam.
The only other loss of Colossa's MMA career was to Eduard Folayang and he is going up against Hawaiian Lowen Tynanes who holds a notable recent win over the Filipino in what promises to be a straightforward striker vs wrestler match up.
Evolve MMA standout Jake Butler will be making his MMA debut on the undercard, the NCAA Division One qualifier was captain of the wrestling team at Princeton and he will be facing Indonesian Antonio Romulus in a light heavyweight clash.
The main event, which was announced earlier this month, sees two Filipinos square off for the ONE FC featherweight belt as Honorio Banario takes on Eric Kelly. Both fighters are URCC champions and Kelly brings an unbeaten record of 9-0 into the cage while Banario is 7-1 with his only loss coming at the hands of Bae Young Kwon.
