Sherdog.com confirmed Friday with a source close to the Singapore-based promotion that Korean talent Soo Chul Kim will rematch Brazilian-born competitor Leandro Issa at One FC 6 for the promotion's inaugural bantamweight championship.

Dubbed “Rise of Kings,” the event takes place Oct. 6 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The pay-per-view event will feature two more to-be-announced title fights, as well as a lightweight showdown between former Dream champion Shinya Aoki and Arnaud Lepont.

Issa and Kim previously met at One FC’s debut event roughly one year ago, with Issa walking away from “Champion vs. Champion” with a unanimous decision. Since that time, Issa, 28, has competed just once, taking a unanimous decision from former Deep and Cage Rage champion Masakazu Imanari at One FC 4 in June. Now living in Singapore and training at Evolve MMA, “Brodinho” rides a seven-fight winning streak heading into his rematch with Kim.

Just 20 years old, Kim has already competed 10 times as a professional, racking up a 4-1 record to start his career before running into Issa in his One FC foray. Two more defeats would then follow for the Korean, who was quickly submitted by Gustavo Falciroli and then outpointed by Jae Hoon Moon to begin 2012. The Team Force representative rebounded with a pair of wins, however, most recently snatching a unanimous verdict from URCC champion Kevin Belingon on Aug. 31 at One FC 5.
