A lightweight showdown between Arnaud
Lepont and Eddie Ng will
take place at One
FC 8 "Kings and Champions,"
One Fighting Championship officials recently announced the
booking, which precedes the evening’s lightweight title headliner
between reigning belt holder Kotetsu Boku
and challenger Shinya Aoki.
One FC 8 takes place April 5 at Singapore Indoor Stadium and airs
live on Star Sports in Asia. Fans worldwide can watch the evening’s
main card live for a charge of US$9.99 at www.onefc.livesport.tv.
The evening’s free preliminary draw will stream immediately prior
to the pay-per-view.
Lepont, 32, saw a six-fight winning streak snapped in his most
recent in-cage appearance, as the Frenchman was dominated by Dream
champion Shinya Aoki.
“Tobikan Judan” wasted no time in dispatching Lepont at One FC 6
this past October, slapping on a triangle choke and putting “The
Game” to sleep in just 85 seconds.
Ng, meanwhile, rides a three-fight surge heading into his showdown
with Lepont. Representing Evolve MMA by way of Hong Kong, the
once-beaten lightweight made his One FC debut in 2011, earning a
45-second knockout over Chunbo Yuan.
Ng returned to the cage for One FC 3 this past March, stopping
Kai Chee in just 43 seconds at “War of the Lions.”
