bashir-ahmad.jpgNext month’s “ONE FC 10: Kojima vs. Leone” event has three new additions.

They include featherweights Bashir Ahmad (2-0) vs. Bruno Pucci (2-0) and lightweights Vincent Latoel (13-13-2) vs. Willy Ni (15-7).

ONE FC 10 takes place Sept. 13 in Jakarta, Indonesia, at the 15,000-seat Istora Senayan Stadium. As with past ONE FC events, the main card will be available via online pay-per-view ($9.99) following free prelims.

Ahmad, who’s billed as a Pakistani MMA pioneer, made his ONE FC debut in April and scored a decision victory over Shannon Wiratchai. The fighter, who recently was featured in our “Fight Path” prospect series, looks to move to 3-0 when he meets Pucci, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and no-gi world champion grappler who makes his ONE FC debut.

Latoel, meanwhile, is a Dutch-Indonesian kickboxer and Golden Glory team member who looks to halt a 1-3-1 skid when he meets Ni, a Dutch vet who fights for the first time in four years and looks to snap snap a five-fight losing streak. Both fighters make their promotional debuts.

In addition to those two new matchups, Brianata Rosadhi (1-0) has replaced injured Stefer Rahardian (0-0) and now meets fellow flyweight Raymond Tan (1-0).

The latest ONE FC 10 card includes:
