One Championship returns to the Philippines for its second event of 2020. One Championship: Fire & Fury will be headlined by a strawweight title bout between Joshua Pacio and Alex Silva. While Ivanildo Silva Delfino failed the hydration test, all fighters made weight.
Pacio (16-3) won the strawweight belt in April 2019 by knocking out Yosuke Saruta with a head kick. “The Passion” followed that up with an arm-triangle choke submission over Rene Catalan in his last bout. Pacio looked prepared for his second title defense and easily made weight at 124.89 pounds.
Silva (9-4) will look to continue his hot streak against the champ and will look to hold gold for the first time in his mixed martial arts career. “Little Rock” is coming off two armbar wins over Stefer Rahardian and Xuewen Peng. The Brazilian looked good on the scales and came in at 124.78 pounds.
Former lightweight titleholder Eduard Folayang is also on the card as he’ll look to get back into title contention with a win over Pieter Buist. Folayang (22-8) lost the belt to Shinya Aoki and was submitted by Eddie Alvarez in his next bout. “Landslide” bounced back with a technical decision win over Tsogookhuu Amarsanaa and will look to continue that momentum. Buist (14-4) is on a seven-fight win streak with his most recent victory over Antonio Caruso.
