The first fight of the night will revive the sporting rivalry between Singapore and Malaysia as Singapore's Ronald Low faces Chen Yun Ting from Malaysia.
Low is undefeated in his professional Muay Thai and MMA career. He will make his One FC debut in front of his fellow countrymen against top Malaysian MMA prospect Chen, who trains out of the famed Muayfit gym alongside One FC fighters Peter Davis, Eric Kelly and Arnaud Lepont.
Also on the undercard, NCAA Division I wrestler Jake Butler returns after making a successful One FC debut last month in Malaysia. He now faces Bengal MMA Champion Nuur Muhammad.
The main card will begin with a bout between Pakistani MMA pioneer Bashir Ahmad, who is making his One FC debut, facing off against Shannon Wiratchai from Thailand. Both fighters carry undefeated professional records into this battle but only one will leave with his loss column intact.
Wushu World Champion, SEA games and Asian games gold medalist Rene S. Catalan from the Philippines faces Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion Alex Silva in a Flyweight division battle. This clash of styles promises to be an exciting affair between two world champions in their respective martial art.
Leandro Issa is another Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion who trains at the world-class Evolve MMA gym in Singapore alongside title contender Shinya Aoki. Yusup Saadulaev is the former TFC Featherweight champion and is an outstanding wrestler from the Dagestan region in Russia. The winner of this bout will take a step closer to a Bantamweight title shot in the near future.
"This event will be the biggest in ONe FC history and features the top names in MMA, headlined by a Lightweight World Championship showdown between submission ace Shinya Aoki and our reigning Lightweight World Champion Kotetsu Boku," One FC CEO Victor Cui said in a statement.
"The five fights added today feature Asia's top fighters ensuring that this fight card is filled with exciting fights from the top to bottom. Close to 12,000 fans will pack the Singapore Indoor Stadium, making it the biggest fight card in Asia this year."
Kings & Champions will be broadcast live on Star Sports across Asia.
