ONE FC has announced that the promotion’s upcoming, April 5th, “Kings and Champions” event in Singapore, will feature the semifinals of its bantamweight grand-prix. In one bracket, former UFC champ Jens Pulver will take on former Shooto champ Masakatsu Ueda, and in the other Kevin Belingon will battle Thanh Vu.
The card, which will be hosted by the Singapore Indoor Stadium, will be headlined by a lightweight bout between champion Kotetsu Boku and Shinya Aoki.
Pulver (27-17-1) is coming off a technical decision over Ya Fei Zhao in October, while Ueda (16-2-2) earned a unanimous decision win over Min Jung Song at the same ONE FC event.
Belingon (10-2) scored a stoppage win over Yusup Saadulaev in the tourney’s opening round and Vu (3-1), meanwhile, recorded a TKO victory over Mohd Fouzein in February to entrench a semifinal spot.
ONE FC “Kings and Champions” will be available via online pay-per-view throughout North America. The card will also be broadcast live throughout Asia on Star Sports.
