One of the deadliest strikers in the business today will face a submission wizard on 5 April 2013 in Singapore as Melvin “No Mercy” Manhoef (27-9-1-1) takes on Brock Larson (36-7) in One FC ‘Kings and Champions’.
Manhoef doesn’t need any further introduction as he is known for his devastating power. He is a poster boy for annihilation and a true knock our artist. Manhoef has faced and beaten some of the greatest fighters in the business today and established himself as one the most respected fighters in the fight business today. This guy is a nightmare for anybody in his division; he can put you to sleep in any moment in a fight or worse, he can send you straight to the hospital.
Meanwhile, Larson is a veteran of 43 professional fights. He is a UFC veteran and he loves to break somebody’s arm and put his opponent to sleep by choking them out. His name might not be as big as Manhoef, but his record will show you that he can stop a fighter as good as Manhoef. Let’s see if Larson can take Manhoef down before he gets knocked out.
Headlining One FC ‘Kings and Champions’ is a lightweight bout between two of Japan’s well-known MMA as the always dangerous Shinya Aoki will challenge the crafty striker Kotetsu Boku for his One FC lightweight belt.
Also, Jens Pulver takes on Masakatsu Ueda and Kevin Belingon versus Thanh Vu are set for the Bantamweight Grand Prix semi-finals.
Another lightweight bout is set to make the fire up the crowd as the always entertaining French fighter, Arnaud “The Game” Lepont battles crowd favorite, Eddie “The Magician” Ng.
Two top bantamweight fighters will try to get back to their winning ways when Evolve MMA’s Leandro “Brodinho” Issa squares off with Yusup “Maestro” Saadulaev.
Leandro is coming off a very discouraging loss against the current One FC bantamweight champion, Soo Chul King at One FC 6 in October, while Saadulaev got his first TKO loss at the hands of Filipino MMA star Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon in October as well.
