Ji “The Executioner” Xian has made a reputation for himself as one of the top mixed martial artists in Asia. With a background in Sanda, Ji proved that he is one to watch out for in the MMA scene when he went undefeated in his first eight fights, winning a title in another promotion. He is now set to test himself against the best mixed martial artists in his division and will begin his quest for the ONE FC championship with a bout against Song Ya Dong.
Song Ya Dong is one of the brightest prospects in the world of MMA. He has already won four professional mixed martial arts bouts before his 20th birthday and is one of the most highly touted mixed martial artists to ever emerge from China. He will face his biggest test to date in compatriot Ji Xian. Song is best known for his takedowns and will make good use of them against fellow grappler Ji Xian.
Adrian Pang is one of the top lightweights in the world. A veteran of 28 fights, Pang was previously a champion in another promotion and will now make his ONE FC debut with his sights set on capturing the prestigious ONE FC lightweight world championship.
In his first four bouts with the promotion, Vincent Latoel has established himself as one of the most exciting mixed martial artists on the ONE FC roster. Latoel began his career as a dutch kickboxer but has developed an all-action style that has proven to excite audiences. Latoel will be a tough litmus test for Pang as both fighters look to make a statement on 31 October.
