ONE FC officials early Tuesday announced the remaining fights for the the preliminary card, including NCAA Division I wrestler and Princeton product Jake Butler (1-0) vs. Nuur Muhammad (0-0) of India.

ONE FC 5 takes place April 5 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. Star Sports broadcasts the event in Asia, and it’s available elsewhere via online pay-per-view for $9.99.

Also on the prelims, Ronald Low (1-0) meets Chen Yun Ting (0-0); Yusup Saadulaev (9-2-1) takes on Leandro Issa (10-3) at bantamweight; Wushu world champion Rene Catalan (0-0) makes his pro debut against Alex Silva (1-1); and Bashir Ahmad (0-0) meets Shannon Wiratchai (2-0).

Light heavyweight Butler made his MMA debut this past month with a first-round TKO of Antoni Romulo at ONE FC 7. Muhammad will be making his pro MMA debut.
