Nearly seven months after Koji Oishi dethroned Honorio Banario to win the One Fighting Championship featherweight title, “The Rock” will receive his shot at redemption.
Oishi and Banario were cleared to compete at today’s One FC 13 weigh-ins, with both men tipping the scales at 145 pounds. Oishi beat Banario in May at One FC 9, scoring a come-from-behind knockout in the second round.
One FC 13 “Moment of Truth” takes place Friday at Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines, and will also see Kevin Belingon (134) collide with David Aranda Santacana (135). UFC veteran Caros Fodor (155) will compete on the card, squaring off with South African muay Thai practitioner Vuyisile Colossa (155).
One FC 13 streams live at www.onefc.livesport.tv and will also see URCC welterweight champion Eduard Folayang (154) battle 28-fight pro Vincent Latoel (154). Immediately prior to the start of the event, Sherdog.com will stream a free One FC 13 preview video.
