By FCF Staff
ONE FC’s latest event took place earlier today in Singapore, and the “War of the Lions” card featured performances from several accomplished vets, including Tatsuya Kawajiri, Masakazu Imanari, Melvin Manhoef and Yuya Shirai.
While Kawajiri and Imanari secured submission victories, Shirai dropped a unanimous decision to BJJ black belt Fabricio Monteiro.
Melvin Manhoef’s tilt with Yoshiyuki Nakanishi was promptly declared a no contest, after Manhoef incurred a large and deep gash on his shin.
In the card’s main event, Zorobabel Moreira extended his record to 6-1 by tapping out Felipe Enomoto with a third round armbar.
