ONE FC is preparing for arguably the biggest show in their history tomorrow at Dubai Trade Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, with world class talent like Ben Askren and Shinya Aoki featured in three title bouts. The event also includes the return of Roger Huerta, as well as the second MMA bout for former boxing champion Ana Julaton.
The weigh in today saw every fighter on the event’s main card weigh in successfully for their allotted division.
On the undercard however, there was one fighter who failed to make weight: Dubai native Mohamad Walid, who was scheduled to fight Vaughn Donayre of the Philippines. Their bout will now be contested at a catchweight of 76.5kg (or, 169 lbs.)
Shinya Aoki fights Kamal Shalorus for ONE FC’s lightweight title in the main event. The event will begin at 7 am EST / 4 am PST, and be streamed live via online PPV in the US through LiveSport TV.
