4 more bouts have been added to the ONE FC 8 card, which will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between Kotetsu Boku and Shinya Aoki.

ONE Fighting Championship's 8th event will happen on April 5th, and for the first time, the event will be broadcasted live all over Asia, on Star Sports. The event will be headlined by Kotetsu Boku's first lightweight title defense against Shinya Aoki, and today, officials have released the full line up for the card.

We have already reported on the 6 top fights that will be on the stacked Singapore card, and now 4 more bouts have been announced to complete the line up.

In a battle of contrasting styles, talented striker and Wushu World Champion Rene Catalan will immediately get his ground game tested during his MMA debut as he takes on a BJJ Champ from Evolve MMA in Alex Silva (1-1).

Also coming from Evolve is Division 1 wrestler, Jake Butler (1-0), who will look to follow up on his dominant MMA debut when he takes on India's Nuur Muhammad. Thailand's Shannon Wiratchai (2-0-1), who stopped Mitch Chilson on his last bout, will take on Pakistan's Bashir Ahmad (1-0), while Singapore's Ronald Low will take on Malaysia's Chen Yun Ting.
