One Fighting Championship on Thursday announced three additional bouts for its May 31 card at the 20,000 seat MOA Arena in Manila, Philippines.

UFC and WEC veteran Kamal Shalorus will tangle with Eduard Folayang and Phil Baroni will confront Nobutatsu Suzuki.

Also announced Thursday, Shooto and Bellator Fighting Championships vet Masakatsu Ueda will lock horns with Kevin Belingon.

The three fights join a card already comprised of Bibiano Fernandes versus Koetsu Okazaki and Koji Oishi vs. Honorio Banario.

“One FC ‘Rise to Power’ will feature some of the biggest names in Asian MMA as we return to the fight capital of Asia,” stated ONE FC CEO Victor Cui in a press release. “I’m beyond excited to see Honorio Banario back in action in front of his home crowd at the state-of-the art Mall of Asia Arena. Bibiano Fernandes taking on Koetsu Okazaki has all the ingredients for a possible Fight of the Night with one of the world’s greatest pound-for-pound fighters squaring off against a Japanese submission artist who is known for his impressive grappling game.”

May 31’s undercard will stream live and free on Sherdog.com, and the main card fights will be available for $9.99 at www.onefc.livesport.tv.
