The main card is set for next month’s “ONE FC 9: Rise to Power” event with the recent addition of two flyweight bouts.
ONE FC 9, which also features two previously announced title fights, takes place May 31 at Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, Philippines. It streams via online pay-per-view.
Urushitani is a recent UFC fighter who competed in the organization’s championship flyweight tournament. However, after entering the organization with a five-fight win streak, the Japanese fighter suffered a TKO loss to Joseph Benavidez in the opening round of the tourney and then a decision defeat to John Lineker in November. That prompted his UFC release.
He fights for the time since then when he meets Docyogen, a top Filipino prospect who won his first 10 pro bouts. However, in February, the URCC pinweight champion made his ONE FC debut and suffered a submission defeat to well-respected Shinichi Kojima.
Eustaquio, meanwhile, is a Filipino who looks for his third straight win following a ONE FC 2 victory over Alex Silva. The well-rounded fighter meets Leone, an American wrestler and grappler, makes his promotional debut. He had been on a five-fight win streak before a Road FC 8 submission loss to Kyung Ho Kang.
