April 30, 2014: Hong Kong’s Eddie Ng and Filipino Honorio Banario feature among the final three fights added to next month’s One FC: Honor & Glory in Singapore.

 

Headlined by the welterweight clash between American Ben Askren and Azerbaijan’s Bakhtiyar Abbasov, the 10-bout card will be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 30.

 

Ng, 28, will meet Dutch kickboxer Vincent Latoel and put his undefeated streak on the line, having racked up four consecutive wins over One FC’s best lightweights. Ng has also been confirmed as the first One FC Berocca ambassador, after Berocca joined forces with One FC as an Official Partner.

 

Banario, 24, will take on Mongolian kickboxer Narantungalag Jadambaa, who will be making his One FC debut. Banario, nicknamed ‘The Rock’, is a Wushu practitioner and became the inaugural One FC Featherweight World Champion last February.

Brazil’s Bruno Pucci takes on exciting American prospect Major Overall, a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu purple belt. Pucci made an impressive One FC debut against Pakistani MMA pioneer Bashir Ahmad, locking in a rear naked choke and submitting him in the first round. The Brazilian is a decorated no-gi grappling champion who has remained undefeated since transitioning to MMA.

 

Victor Cui, CEO of One FC, said: “One FC will return to Singapore with another explosive night of world-class mixed martial arts action. Fans around the world have been eagerly awaiting the One FC debut of Ben Askren, who faces the toughest test of his career when he goes up against Bakhtiyar Abbasov. Close to 12,000 fans will pack out the arena to witness history at One FC: Honor & Glory.”
