ONE FC has added two fights to its upcoming Singapore card set to take place on October 18, 2013, at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. The co-main event will feature two rising stars in the lightweight division as Eddie Ng from Hong Kong clashes with the face of MMA in Malaysia, Peter Davis.
Both Ng (6-1) and Davis (6-2) have been on a roll and a win will put them one step closer to a ONE FC lightweight world championship opportunity. They also have big fan followings and this is a match-up which people in Singapore and Malaysia have been talking about for a long time.
The belt is currently held by Shinya Aoki who trains alongside Ng at Evolve MMA, but he has reportedly told friends that he would be willing to vacate the title and drop down to featherweight if it meant his friend and team mate could fight for the belt in his native Hong Kong.
The Singapore Indoor Stadium is the spiritual home of Asia's biggest MMA organization and ONE FC: "Total Domination" will be the fifth card Victor Cui's promotion has held there. He predicts that plenty of fans will make the trip from Malaysia to come and support Davis,
"MMA fans in Singapore are about to be blown away by this fight card! It is stacked with the most exciting fighters from start all the way to the main event. I can’t tell you how excited I am that Eddie Ng and Peter Davis will be facing each other on October 18. This bout will mark a major milestone in the history of the Asian lightweight division as both fighters have made it clear that nothing will stand in their way of reaching a title shot."
The other fight announced this week is a middleweight match-up between Tatsuya Mizuno (11-9) and Rafael Silva (39-13). The Japanese fighter is dropping down a division to take on the Portuguese grappler, who brings plenty of momentum into this bout riding a seven fight win streak.
ONE FC: "Total Domination" will be screened live all over Asia by Star Sports and the entire card will be available to view online for $9.99 with the undercard streamed free of charge.
