ONE FC 10: Andrew Leone Fighting Shinichi Kojima for Flyweight Belt

By FCF Staff

ONE FC has announced that Andrew Leone, and not Yasuhiro Urushitani as expected, will fight Shinichi Kojima for the promotion’s inaugural flyweight title on September 13th. ONE FC 10 will take place on that date at the Istora Senayan Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The reason for the change was not included in a press release sent out by the promotion.

Leone (6-2) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Geje Eustaquio at ONE FC 9 in May. The decorated grappler has gone 4-1 in his last five fights.

Kojima (13-5-5), meanwhile, tapped out Rey Docyogen with a second round, guillotine choke at his ONE FC debut in February. The former Shooto champ and renowned fighter is 3-2 in his last five contests.

The promotion has also announced that former lightweight champ Kotetsu Boku (20-8-2) will take on noted striker and Muay Thai competitor Vuyisile Colossa (5-4).

The card will also feature accomplished wrestler Jake Butler (2-0) taking on decorated Karate competitor James Kouame (1-1).

ONE FC will be available for viewing in North America via online pay-per-view.
