One FC on Tuesday announced the first round of its Bantamweight Grand Prix, which is slated to take place at One FC 6 on Oct. 6 in Singapore. Jens Pulver will fight Chinese fighter Zhao Ya Fei in a first round match, and Min Jung Song will face Shooto and Bellator veteran Masakatsu Ueda.
One of the promotion’s biggest signings to date, Ueda is a Japanese MMA legend. He most recently took his game to the United States, where Travis Marx defeated him in the first round of the Bellator bantamweight tournament.
Ueda, a former Shooto featherweight champ, defended his crown on numerous occasions and is one of the best fighters with the Shooto organization.
The grand prix will end in 2013 with two finalists clashing for the One FC Grand Prix bantamweight title.
One FC: Rise of the Kings will be available on pay-per-view in the United States on Oct. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
Fans from around the world can witness the action online via live streaming at www.onefc.com/livestream. The first two undercard fights are available for viewing free of charge and the main card fights will be available for purchase.
