CEO of ONE Fighting Championship™ Victor Cui stated, “ONE FC is constantly on the lookout for the top prospects around the word and Adriano Moraes and Josh Paiva on this card is testament to that fact. These two fighters have taken the world of MMA by a storm and are both entering the ONE FC cage undefeated. The stakes are extremely high, because come 15 November, only one of them can leave with his win record intact. Expect sparks to start flying from the very start of the first round.”

Adriano Moraes is undefeated in his mixed martial arts career, having won all nine of his bouts contested in his native Brazil. He is equally adept in both striking and grappling, having amassed the same number of knockouts and submissions in his career. He will look to keep his winning streak alive when he competes outside of Brazil for the first time. He takes on another undefeated mixed martial artist in Josh Paiva, who represents the toughest test of his young career and it will be a litmus test of his abilities if he can be the first one to serve Paiva a defeat.

Josh Paiva is the current KOTC Flyweight Champion and is undefeated in professional MMA. His accomplishments in the cage have led many to consider him one of the top prospects in MMA to watch this year. He has proven his considerable strength in striking having ended two of his five fights with highlight reel knockouts. Paiva’s striking base comes from his experience training in Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Judo and Boxing, and he will look to make a big impression on 15 November at ONE FC: WARRIOR SPIRIT when he enters the ONE FC cage for the first time.

The main event of the evening will crown the inaugural ONE FC Welterweight World Champion. The bout features a battle between the top mixed martial artist to ever come out of Malaysia, Adam Shahir Kayoom, against Japanese slugger Nobutatsu Suzuki.
