ONE FC 19 is underway in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where the Dubai Trade Center is hosting (arguably) the largest event in the promotion’s history.

Later today, top-ranked welterweight Ben Askren will make his return to the cage, and Shinya Aoki will headline the show with a lightweight title defense.

But ONE FC 19 opened with the preliminary bouts, including the second ONE FC appearance for former boxing champion Ana Julaton.

In what was called a “great back and forth battle” by reporter Ben Szwediuk, who is cageside for The Mirror, Julaton was defeated by Malaysia’s Ann Osman by split decision. The Filipino-American Julaton falls to 1-1 in her MMA career.
