    Zorobabel Moreira will be Roger Huerta's opponent and Gregor Gracie v Adam Kayoom has been added to the card.

    Chesty, do you know if One FC has taken over Australia's Cage Fighting Championship's or if they just co-promote?

    no, i dont think so. Cage fighting championship is part of the ONE FC network along with
    DREAM
    URCC (Philippines)
    ROAD Fighting Championship (Korea)
    DARE Championship (Thailand)

    i think those (with the exception of dream since its closed down) will act as local feeder leagues to ONE FC, or a place for surplus ONE fc fighters to fight.


    i update OP with the full card.


    new ring girl:

    (i think ONE FC ring girls are by far Koreas best contribution to MMA) =)

    I'm so glad that these are banned under the unified rules




    also this open guard rule is just to confusing,even the ref fucked this up because he said no kicks about 3/4 times,yet he allowed the kick to stand.

    his career is dead Sad

    anyways its not really full MMA without soccer kicks, although i also get confused by the open guard rule.

    The reason for the rule is because is can be dangerous to stomp or soccer kick someone for example when they are trapped against the fence.
    Those kicks are best used in a ring where there is always room to move your head!

    Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver have both been tapped to compete at One FC's August 31 event to be held in Manila, Philippines.

    the card already includes Shinya Aoki, Bibiano Fernandes, Renato Sobral, 3 Gracies, and several URCC Champions and Asian stars like Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon and Eric Kelly.

    Ole Laursen won't be competing on the card.

    Babalu, has once again been offered to face Melvin Manhoef. Negotiations are still in the early stages though, so there is still a chance that bout doesn't push through. The last time the promotion tried to book the fight, one of the issues mentioned was the weight, as Manhoef has been competing at 185 lbs, while Babalu last fought at 205 lbs.

    Wow great card, I was sceptical about OneFC doing well but some good names. I dont see why weight is an issue for Manhoef, he competes at Openweight in K-1 against people a lot bigger than Babalu and Babalu made a 195lbs catchweight with Lawler, im sure they can work something out!!

    Wonder who is next for AA? Whats Ishii doing these days? Him or Monson would be cool.

    Pulver has been down to Flyweight in his last 2 fights! Crazy, Id love to see him move back up in weight and maby get matched with Hellboy or something...

    back to featherweight for Jens?

    I think Kelly will beat him.

    As for the heavyweight fights, i like Soa: 17-3 with 17 finishes (8 inside a minute), its a really dangerous opponent for Arlovski.
    I think Soa will win via KO.

    2 good fights that could go either way though.

    Wow Jens had cut to 125, 145 is a big step up, could Kelly meet him at 135 I wonder?

    Yeah I can see a Horrible finish for AA, I could see a nasty Soccer Kick KO, though Im hoping for him all the same. Shite chin or not Id like to see him make a last run in the UFC even if it was against the like of Struve and Meathead.

    Bibiano's opponent:

    Gustavo Falciroli (Fightmatrix has him 39th ranked)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustavo_Falciroli

    They really could have done better, I reckon he should fight Crusher at 145lbs. Thats a Superfight id love to see.
