ONE FC: Reign of Champions adds four bouts


ONE FC: Reign of Champions is set to be headlined by a welterweight title fight between former Bellator champion Ben Askren and Nobutatsu Suzuki. While that bout was previously announced, the leading Asian mixed martial arts promotion has announced four new additions to the card.

The biggest bout on the card outside of Suzuki vs. Askren is a lightweight title match between current title holder Shinya Aoki and MMA veteran Kamal Shalorus, who has previously fought in the WEC and UFC.

Another UFC veteran, Roger Huerta, who was the first mixed martial artist to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated, will take on undefeated Christian Holley.

Two top featherweights, Herbert Burns and Hiroshige Tanaka, will also meet at the event.

The final addition to the card that was announced by ONE FC over the weekend is a booking between kickboxing champion Irina Mazepa and former WBO and IBA boxing champion Ana Julaton.

ONE FC: Reign of Champions is set to take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre on August 29.

The event will be available in the United States via online pay-per-view and tickets will go on sale soon.
