Honorio Banario will meet the undefeated Eric Kelly for the vacant One Fighting Championship featherweight crown in the One FC 7 “Return of Warriors” main event on Saturday at the Putra Indoor Stadium in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The main card will stream live on pay-per-view at www.onefc.livesport.tv for a charge of $9.99.

Beforehand, Sherdog.com will provide the free live stream for a pair of undercard bouts at 6 a.m. ET/3 a.m. PT, as Jake Butler meets Antoni Romulo at 205 pounds and Gianni Subba faces Saiful Merican at 125 pounds.

Butler wrestled collegiately at Princeton University and figures to lean heavily on his base discipline as he makes the transition to mixed martial arts. Romulo, an Indonesian wrestling champion, stopped Jimmy Yan Herry in his professional MMA debut back in 2007 but has not fought since.

The 20-year-old Subba dazzled in his maiden bout in October, as he knocked out decorated sanshou stylist Bruce Loh in a little more than half a minute at One FC 6. He will have his hands full against Merican, whom One FC officials tout as perhaps the greatest muay Thai fighter in Malaysian history.
