yasuhiro-urushitani-2.jpgThe main card is set for next month’s “ONE FC 9: Rise to Power” event with the recent addition of two flyweight bouts.

The include Yasuhiro Urushitani (19-6-6) vs. Rey Docyogen (10-1) and Geje Eustaquio (4-1) vs. Andrew Leone (5-2).

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.
