The Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore has a fight-heavy schedule on the horizon, but just over three weeks before the Ultimate Fighting Championship turns up for UFC Fight Night 111, One Championship is back at the venue with “Dynasty of Heroes.”
The promotion confirmed two additional bouts for the May 26 event on Monday, announcing a 135-pound rematch between former One title challenger Geje Eustaquio and “Mak Mak” Anatpong Bunrad, as well as a 152-pound catch-weight contest between two grappling standouts, Jeremy Meciaz and Chen Lei.
Eustaquio last saw action in December under the One Championship banner, suffering a submission loss to Finland's Toni Tauru in less than four minutes. It was the 28-year-old Filipino fighter's first loss since April 2015, when he met Bunrad for the first time at 125 pounds, dropping a close split decision to the Thai fighter at One Championship 26 in Manila, Philippines (online betting).
Bunrad hasn't fought since December 2015, where he lost a split decision to Gianna Subba. The 30-year-old was scheduled to face Eugene Toquero in May of last year before the bout was canceled.
China's Lei, 28, is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu exponent who recently captured a tournament title at the Shanghai Open BJJ. Meciaz is making his pro MMA debut after establishing himself as one of Indonesia's preeminent grapplers.
