    As always the online ppv details are on the official onefc website under livestream. The start time is 7pm for prelim and 8.30pm main (local time Singapore). Below are my fights pick:

    Leandro vs Igor – Leandro has all the tools to beat anyone in mm in the world. Igor has a strong ground base and he will be using it to nullify Leandro’s striking attack. This fight is really down to how well Igor can stand and bang against Leandro. If Igor can move away and nullify Leandro’s persistent attack and counter then we are in for a treat. I don’t think this fight will be won on the ground but rather on the fight. I don’t think it will go to the championship round, with Leandro wining via KO or TKO.
    Koji vs Zorobabel – The welcome back to Zoro it is not because he is facing an opponent who is equally adept and has every opportunity in winning this fight either on the ground or on the feet. I predict this fight to be back and forth and possibly fight of the night. My prediction is a decision win to either fighter.
    Abbosov vs Luis Santos – Abbosov would have learnt from his defeat to Ben Askren and can give an account of himself both standing and on the ground, but so too can his opponent Luis. I see this as a chess match with both fighters seeking to dominate on the ground and takedowns will be done by both. My prediction is a victory to Luis.
    Rocky vs Martin – Both fighters were champions in their previous org. Both are making their first entrance in the One FC. Therefore both will look to impress and I see an exciting fight for the fans. Although both are good, Martin has faced tougher opponent and more adept on the ground and can stand and bang. I predict Martin to get the win.

    In essence all main card fights look great but my shout goes out to the women fight in the prelim, since the One FC women fights tend to be exciting and entertaining. What they lack in skills, they give in hearts and actions. I see Kirstie winning because she trains full time with the best and a home crowd advantage.
