The One FC 12 headliner has been altered for a second time.
One Fighting Championship officials announced Thursday that main event fighter Vitor Pinto has failed his pre-fight medical exam. As a result, his welterweight showdown with Nobutatsu Suzuki has been scrapped. Suzuki was originally supposed to face Adam Shahir Kayoom for the promotion’s inaugural welterweight title, but Pinto was tapped as a non-title replacement when Kayoom went down with an injury.
One FC 12 takes place Friday at Putra Indoor Stadium in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and will now see Adriano Moraes (134) collide with Yusup Saadulaev (134) in the evening’s main event. The show streams live at www.onefc.livesport.tv and will also showcase a middleweight contest pitting Bryan Rafiq (184) against Leandro Ataides (183).
With the exception of the canceled headliner, every pairing received a green light at Thursday’s weigh-ins, including a heavyweight showdown between Chris Lokteff (248) and Tony Johnson (265). Joining them on the main card will be a lightweight clash between Alaa Mazloum (154) and Peter Davis (155), as well as two flyweight bouts pitting Gianni Subba (125) and Tok Sophon (125) against Yun Ting Chen (123) and Saiful Merican (125), respectively.
