One FC 9 Poster Kevin Belingon is the URCC bantamweight champion and is bringing a lot of momentum into the One FC Bantamweight Grand Prix Final. He beat Dream veteran Yusup Sadulaaev and Vietnamese-Australian Thanh Vu to earn a spot in the finals. But his upcoming opponent’s ground game is world class, and could be the key factor in this match.

Masakatsu Ueda is a former Shooto featherweight champion and is a master technician on the mat. He beat Road FC Bantamweight Grand Prix finalist Jung Ming Song and former UFC champion Jens Pulver to get here. Both of these fighters have outstanding records and have established themselves as two of the top bantamweights in the world.

They are the final two fighters out of a field of eight outstanding contenders and it is set to be an intense final match in front of a raucous Filipino crowd. With the home-ground advantage working for Belingon, Ueda must pull out all the stops to emerge as the One FC Bantamweight Grand Prix Champion.
