Nobutatsu Suzuki is a fighter who has proven that he has one-punch KO power, as a record of nine knockouts in ten wins will testify. Suzuki has one of the highest percentages of stoppage wins in all of MMA. Suzuki is famous for being the first fighter in Asia to showcase the incredible striking power of Karate effectively in MMA. The Kyokushin Karate black belt last fought at ONE FC: RISE TO POWER, defeating one of MMA’s most experienced combatants, Phil Baroni, by TKO. With two heavy-hitters locking horns on 15 November, fans are already predicting a “Knockout of the Night” with both fighters having the ability to end the fight in an instant.

Vitor Pinto is an undefeated veteran hailing from Portugal. He has put together an impressive professional record of 7 wins and 0 losses. Pinto has consistently faced high caliber opposition and has proven time and time again why he is emerging as one of the top Welterweights in the world. Known to look for the quick finish, fans should expect nothing but fireworks as these two warriors battle for pride and glory at ONE FC: WARRIOR SPIRIT.

Adriano Moraes is undefeated in his mixed martial arts career, having won all nine of his bouts contested in his native Brazil. He is equally adept in both striking and grappling, having amassed the same number of knockouts and submissions in his career. The explosive fighter will look to keep his winning streak alive when he competes outside of Brazil for the first time. He takes on a very seasoned grappler from Russia, Yusup Saadulaev.

Yusup Saadulaev is a Combat Sambo Champion who has won numerous grappling competitions. He is known for tapping out or choking out opponents and is most famous for his ability to knockout his opponents with a devastating slam. Saadulaev is coming off an impressive win over Ryan Diaz at ONE FC: RISE TO POWER. He is in a must-win situation and will be looking at clinching himself another dominating victory.

Heavyweight prospect Chris Lokteff is 11-1 in MMA competition. Fighting out of Integrated MMA in Brisbane, Australia, he is considered one of the top fighters to ever come out of Australia. Lokteff is an out and out brawler who packs 112kg of power behind his punches and is absolutely guaranteed to go for the KO right from the opening bell as he has never gone the distance in his previous fights. He has a tough fight on his hands when he squares off against Tony Johnson.

Johnson is a former King of the Cage Heavyweight Champion and is a former high school wrestling star who is widely regarded as being one of the best prospects in the division. He possesses incredible speed and power for his 6ft tall, 120kg frame. This is set to be a clash of two behemoth Heavyweights who love to strike and a knockout looks to be on the cards.
