Story

Honorio Banario is the URCC Lightweight Champion, but will be dropping down to featherweight for the first time in his career for this fight. Bae Young Kwon is coming off a big win against Brian Choi at Road FC 4 and is an extremely versatile fighter with no real weaknesses.

Banario has a perfect professional record of 6-0 and combines unconventional wushu based stand up skills with strong wrestling and submissions. He is a member of Team Lakay and trains in the high altitudes of Baguio, which gives him outstanding stamina.

Kwon always looks for the knockout, but has also secured wins by submission and decision. Hw will be by far, the best opponent Banario has ever faced. But Filipino fighters are legendary for being tough, and URCC champions tend to do extremely well against international competition.

Story

Gustavo Falciroli is a second degree BJJ black belt and one of the most accomplished ground fighters in all of Australia. Although Soo Chul Kim has experienced facing a grappler of this caliber before - having gone three rounds against BJJ world champion lEANDRO Issa at ONE FC 1 - this will be another very tough test for the young Korean.

Kim impressed a lot of people with his performance at ONE FC 1 and his willingness to take the fight to his opponent. He showcased an exciting fight punctuated by flying knees and quick combinations. Although ultimately he came up short on the judge's scorecard, he will have leaned a lot from the experience and will be looking to do better against Falciroli.

The Australian is the reigning Cage Fighting Championship bantamweight belt holder while Kim held a title at featherweight with the RisingOn promotion in Japan. This promises to be a particularly fun fight for the fans.

Story

Victorio "Indra" Senduk and Raymond Tiew come from similar backgrounds. They have both represented their respective countries at wushu and have had a handful of MMA fights, Senduk took part in the recent South East asian Games and walked away with a silver medal, so he is no stranger to performing under pressure.

Tiew is a highly confident young man who has been making waves in the burgeoning Malaysian mixed martial arts scene. He has run up a record of 5-1-0 in 2011 alone while continuing to compete successfully in K-1.

Senduk has trained in boxing, karate, kickboxing, wushu and sanshou, while Tiew has experience in taekwondo, sanshou, wushu, kickboxing and K-1. This provides all the right ingredients for an explosive contest at ONE FC.

Story

Peter Davis is famous in his native country Malaysia for his acting and modeling work but is looking to make a name for himself as a mixed martial artist. He is primarily a stand up fighter and has an unorthodox kung fu based style.

Ngabdi Mulyadi forged a reputation fighting for TPIFC a few years ago and made a successful comeback to MMA at the FOBI qualifiers in 2011. He is a decorated wrestler with over a decade's experience of competition and he won a bronze medal for Indonesia at the 2009 SEA Games.

This is a classic striker vs grappler match up. With a Malaysian and an Indonesian in the cage, national pride is at stake. Both men will be absolutely desperate to walk away with the win.

Story

This fight sees two veterans of the Indonesian martial arts scene meeting in the ONE FC cage for a battle of Indonesian welterweight supremacy. Nanang describes himself as a wrestler and after 12 Indonesian MMA fights, the Bandung based fighter should be extremely adept at taking the fight to the canvas.

Silawanto has been out of action for a while but like his opponents, he prevailed at the FOBI qualifiers, which were held in Jakarta last December. He is known to fight fans from the TPIFC days when he went head to head with some of the best fighters in the country, running up a record of 7-6 and registering wins by both submission and knock out.

Silawanto has a background in kick boxing, pencak silt, yusikaindo and submission wrestling and isn't afraid to stand and strike. With both men sufficiently experienced not to make mistakes this fight could well go the full three rounds.
