ONE Fighting Championship comes back to Manila, Philippines for their 9th event dubbed as ONE FC 9: Rise to Power. The card is headlined by a featherweight title defense by Honorio Banario as he takes on former King of Pancrase and one-time UFC vet, Koji Oishi.
The co-featured bouts are a treat as well with an interim title fight between the best bantamweight outside the UFC in Bibiano Fernandes, taking on Koetsu Okazaki, along with the Bantamweight Grand Prix finals bout between the Philippines' Kevin Belingon and the highly experienced grappler in Masakatsu Ueda.
The rest of the card is filled with top Asian MMA prospects taking on stiff competition and UFC vets, with guys like Eduard Folayang, Kamal Shalorus, Tim Sylvia, Yasuhiro Urushitani and others on the line up.
