    It should be another entertaining event with headliner and some tantalising mix. Prelim starts at 7pm and main at 8:30 pm local time. Ppv details one onefc livestream website. Below are my fights pick:
    Rob vs Marat – This is not a classic grappler vs standup match as both are good mma fighters but Marat has the upper hand on the ground whereas Rob on the fight. Rob brings an attacking minded game but Marat should be able to nullify those attacks via the takedowns. Both has a lot to prove and contender to fight for the title whoever emerges the victor. I favor Marat as he is more of an all rounder and highly skilled but thats not to say Rob cant put him away with his constant attack. It should be end-to-end wherever the fight goes.

    Edward vs Ev – This is going to be a back and forth mostly contested on the feet, where both can score a knock out. There will be intermittent ocassions whereby the fights may go to the ground. This is likely to be entertaining. I give Ev an edge to win a decision based purely that he has the crowd backing but it’s too close to call.

    Ann vs Aya – The women fights in One FC are usually a real cat fight, making it entertaining to watch. Ann will do her usual thing by clinging and looking to dominate whilst doing it. She would also like to ground and pound. If Aya can keep the fight standing or escaping from the ground, then we’re in for a treat of three rounds, otherwise Ann will win. I predict a win for Ann.

    Rong vs Saiful – If you want to see high level muay thai then you have to watch Rong. There is nothing he hasnt seen before in a muay thai fight but this is mma and his experience is a lot less in comparison to Saiful. Saiful will look to take this fight to the ground and dominate there. But because the one fc rules make it flexible, Rong has a chance to cease the opportunity when there is one. Although Saiful is likely to take the win I prefer Rong to win. He should be competing for a big kickboxing org like Glory whilst still can do mma. I dont think people will get sick of watching him on a standup.
