Bantamweight headliners Bibiano Fernandes and Gustavo Falciroli were both given the green light at Thursday’s One FC 5 weigh-ins, with both men checking in at 135.6 pounds.

A former two-division Dream champion, Fernandes makes his One Fighting Championship debut against Brazilian-born Australian Falciroli, the reigning Cage Fighting Championship bantamweight titlist. One FC 5 takes place Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines.

The evening’s main draw streams live on pay-per-view and features a co-headlining lightweight confrontation pitting Filipino standout Eduard Folayang (156) against Swiss competitor Felipe Enomoto (155.6). Three former UFC champions will also see action at the event, as Andrei Arlovski (246.5) meets fellow heavyweight Tim Sylvia (265.7), and ex-UFC lightweight king Jens Pulver (146) makes his One FC foray against the unbeaten featherweight Eric Kelly (145.8).

Three members of the Gracie family will also compete on Friday night, as Rolles (245.8), Igor (170.6) and Gregor Gracie (176.6) toe the line against Tony Bonello (222), Jung Hwan Cha (170.6) and Nicholas Mann (177), respectively. Additionally, once-beaten URCC 129-pound belt holder Kevin Belingon (135.4) will meet Soo Chul Kim (135.8), while former UFC and Pride Fighting Championships talent Phil Baroni (171) takes on Rodrigo Ribeiro (171).
