A late knee injury to Andrew Leone has forced One Fighting Championship officials to call an audible just two days prior to One FC 10.

Leone’s headlining flyweight showdown with Shinichi Kojima has been pulled from the Sept. 13 bill, which will now be headlined by a lightweight contest pitting former champion Kotetsu Boku against Vuyisile Colossa.

One FC 10 “Champions and Warriors” takes place at Istora Senayan in Jakarta, Indonesia, and airs live via online pay-per-view at onefc.livesport.tv. Immediately prior to that main card broadcast, the evening’s undercard streams live and free on Sherdog.com.

Boku was submitted in his most recent encounter, relinquishing his One FC lightweight title to Shinya Aoki on April 5. Prior to that defeat, “No Face” captured the belt in stunning fashion, scoring a come-from-behind knockout of Zorobabel Moreira this past October at One FC 6.

Five years younger than his opponent, Colossa, 31, began his MMA career in 2010 while also competing as a kickboxer. The native South African made his One FC debut at the promotion’s first event back in September 2011, scoring a first-round knockout over Xing Yu Ma. Since that victory, however, “The Cheetah” has gone 1-3, most recently succumbing to a third-round rear-naked choke courtesy of Lowen Tynanes at February’s One FC 7.
