Asian MMA: Kevin Belingon And Mitch Chilson's Opponents Set For ONE FC 5 In Manila

URCC Champion, Kevin Belingon will be taking on Soo Chul Kim in an early fight of the night candidate on ONE FC 5 in Manila, Philippines.

Two top prospects from two of the best camps in the region have their opponents finalized for the much anticipated ONE FC 5 card in Manila, Philippines.

Kevin Belingon (9-1), the #10 ranked fighter in the World MMA Scouting Report, will be returning to ONE FC and will be competing in his home country. As multiple sources close to the situation have informed that the fight is basically a 'done deal', and the Wushu-based fighter from Team Lakay will be facing the very young and always exciting Korean prospect in Soo Chul Kim.

These young fighters still have a bright future ahead of them, but one of their paths will have be derailed as they go against each other in what promises to be a fast paced and very entertaining scrap.

Aside from my early pick for fight of the night in Belingon vs. Kim, another bout on the card has been recently announced by ONE FC officials. Mitch Chilson, a popular Singapore-based fighter from Evolve MMA, will be taking on undefeated Thai prospect, 'One Shin' Shannon Wiratchai.
