one-fc-18-posterThe fight card is set for next month’s “ONE FC 18: War of Dragons” event, which marks the promotion’s debut in Taiwan.

The event takes place July 11 at National Taiwan University Sports Center in Taipei City. The card streams in North America as an online pay-per-view.

A previously announced bout between featherweights Eric Kelly (10-1) and Rob Lisita (14-5) headlines the card, which is the Singapore-based promotion’s fifth show of 2014.

“ONE FC is bringing world-class mixed martial arts action to Taiwan for the first time on 11 July,” ONE FC CEO Victor Cui stated. “Fans in Taipei will now get the opportunity to experience a night of adrenaline-pumping mixed martial arts action live. This is a historic event as Taiwanese fighters now have the opportunity to compete against international opponents in front of a potential 1 billion viewers worldwide.”

New additions to the card include Taiwanese welterweight Jeff Huang (3-1) vs. Indian kickboxer Bala Shetty (0-0), as well as a rematch between heavyweights Alain Ngalani (1-1) and Chi Lewis Parry (5-0), whose ONE FC 16 bout ended in a no-contest due to an accidental illegal knee to the groin.

Additionally, Singaporean bantamweight Nicholas Lee (2-1) has replaced Muhamad Haidar (0-1) and meets Sung Ming Yen (2-1).

The full lineup includes:

  • Eric Kelly vs. Rob Lisita
  • Koji Ando vs. Rafael Nunes
  • Koetsu Okazaki vs. Yusup Saadulaev
  • Paul Cheng vs. Mahmoud Hassan
  • Nicholas Lee vs. Ming Yen Sung
  • Zhang Zheng Jie vs. Rayner Kansiong
