The fight card is now complete for One Fighting Championship’s eighth event, as promotion officials Tuesday announced the addition of five new contests to the April 5 event.

One FC 8 “Kings and Champions” takes place at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, and will see One FC lightweight champion Kotetsu Boku defend his title against Dream titleholder Shinya Aoki in the evening’s main event. The card will also showcase the One FC bantamweight grand prix semifinals, where Jens Pulver faces Masakatsu Ueda and Kevin Belingon meets Thanh Vu. Additionally, former Cage Rage champion Melvin Manhoef will compete in the show’s co-headliner, taking on UFC veteran Brock Larson.

The evening’s main card airs live on Star Sports across Asia and streams worldwide via online pay-per-view for a fee of US$9.99. In addition to the aforementioned contests, the broadcast will showcase a bantamweight clash pitting former Dream talent Yusup Saadulaev against onetime One FC title contender Leandro Issa and a flyweight showdown featuring Rene Catalan and Alex Silva.

Immediately prior to the pay-per-view, the evening’s two-fight undercard streams live and for free on Sherdog.com. It features a light heavyweight showdown between India’s Nuur Muhammad and former NCAA Division I wrestler Jake Butler, as well as a flyweight confrontation pitting Malaysian prospect Yun Ting Chen against Singaporean muay Thai practitioner Ronald Low.
