Last June, UFC and Strikeforce stand out Caros Fodor announced that he will be competing in Asia and has signed with the region's top promotion, ONE Fighting Championship. Today officials have announced the full line up for ONE FC 10, and the AMC Pankration will be making his debut in Jakarta.
On September 13, one of Matt Hume's top students will face off against popular Korean fighter "Tommy" Yang Seung Ho, who is currently unbeaten in 6 fights. The 23-year-old prospect is highly regarded in Korea, but he will be taking a step up in competition when he takes on Fodor, who was recently released after his lone UFC fight - a contested split decision against Sam Stout.
Also recently announced for the card, is the MMA debut of decorated Muay Thai champion, Alain Ngalani, who will be taking on an Egyptian boxer in Mahmoud Hassan. Based out of Hong Kong, this Cameroonian fighter has numerous kickboxing accolades and also boasts a previous background in Judo as well, which would help him make the transition to MMA easier. While already getting up in age, this 38-year-old striker is still very much a welcome addition to a relatively thin heavyweight division Asia.
BJJ Champions based out of the famed Evolve MMA gym in Bruno Pucci and Almiro Barros will also be on the line up, facing Pakistani pioneer Bashir Ahmad, and Kian Pham respectively.
