ONE FC has announced that it has added two more high profile fighters to its growing roster, as the promotion tweeted Monday that former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver will compete on its upcoming August 31st card.

The “Pride of a Nation” event will be hosted by Manila’s Smart Aranet Coliseum.

While ONE FC didn’t announce who each man will be fighting, according to a report from MMA Weekly, Arlovski will take on Sao Palelei and Pulver will fight Eric Kelly.

Arlovski (17-9) is coming off back-to-back wins over Travis Fulton and Ray Lopez after losing four straight fights.

Palelei (17-3) is currently riding a seven fight win streak and hasn’t fought since March when he stopped Bob Sapp.

Pulver (26-16) worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Jesse Thorton at a Cage Warrior Combat card in April, after he knocked out by Tim Elliot in December.

Kelly  (7-0) has gone undefeated since turning professional in 2009 and most recently scored a UD win over Bae Young Kwon at ONE FC 4 in June.

Other competitors scheduled to fight on the card include Bibiano Fernandes, Shinya Aoki, and Eduard Folayang.
