Phil Baroni vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida Confirmed for September 3rd One FC

By FCF Staff

One Fighting Championship has added a bout between UFC veterans Phil Baroni and Yoshiyuki Yoshida to the promotion’s upcoming event on September 3rd. The debut card will be hosted by Singapore’s Indoor Stadium.

Baroni (14-13) will be looking for his second win in a row, as the well travelled vet is coming off a unanimous decision over Nick Nolte at Titan FC 17 in March. The victory ended a three fight losing skid for Baroni, which included losses to Joe Riggs, Amir Sadollah and Brad Tavares.

Yoshida (12-6) is also coming off a win, as the welterweight stopped Ferrid Kheder on July 17th while competing in France. Like Baroni, Yoshida had lost three straight before the win, with defeats coming against Anthony Johnson, Mike Guymon and Chris Lozano.

The September 3rd One FC event will also feature Gregor Gracie vs. Wang Sai, Andy Wang vs. Zorobabel Moreira and Eduard Folayang vs. Ole Laursen.

The card is set to be broadcast on ESPN Star Sports bringing the event to approximately 500 million homes throughout Asia.
