Three other bouts have been added to the fight card.

Muin “Tajik” Gafurov, a decorated combat sambo champion, will face off against Team Lakay’s Kevin “The Silencer” Belingon, a former ONE Bantamweight World Title challenger, in a bantamweight tilt.

If that wasn’t enough, there is a second dose of bantamweight action as Yusup “Maestro” Saadulaev takes on Jordan “Showtime” Lucas. Rocking a 15-4-1 record, Saadulaev is also a decorated combat sambo world champion. The 31-year-old is riding a three-fight win streak and will have to be at the top of his game to push it to four.

Lucas, a 22-year-old Melbourne native fighting out of Australia’s Team Nemesis camp, has a stacked 8-1 record, with his only defeat coming to the hands of Edward Kelly at last March’s ONE: UNION OF WARRIORS.

Bashir “Somchai” Ahmad, a pioneer of Pakistan’s MMA Movement and the founder of PAKMMA, will look to break a two-fight losing skid and build upon his 3-3 record when he takes on Egyptian prospect Mahmoud Mohamed in a featherweight affair. Mohamed, also 3-3, plans to bounce back from his recent loss to Singaporean standout Christian Lee.

In addition to these fights, the organization will also hold the ONE Myanmar Featherweight Tournament, a contest pitting the country’s best homegrown talents against one another with the winner being crowned tournament champion.

It's such a shame too, I love their fighters. They got some of the best in the world as well as the most entertaining. This Myanmar figther, I've watched him fight, I like the guy. But now, I just don't care. Yeah, they got their own scoring system rather than the 10-point system, as great as that is.

But, without soccer kicks, it just looks like the UFC, still. Too, now the ground guys will be dominating. We barely got to see how Askren would respond and react to soccer kicks. Kicks to the ground are the entire reason why ground fighting was about non-existant in ancient martial arts. The Gracie's had to come up with some lie about 90% of fights going to the ground and create their own fighting tournament that disallowed kicks to the ground to 'prove' how great their system was.

We need soccer kicks to even the playing fiel and make for better fights.

I'd just like to see Rizin pickup all the top ONE FC fighters.  I lost much interest in this org, especially after this move.  ONE FC was heavy promoting partnerships when they came out and now they are not partners with Rizin yet and they remove soccer kicks.  I used to hope they would switch to be a ring org and become huge in Asia but with these moves, it is looking like they are just another generic unified cage company.

Agreed, I think I'm done buying their PPVs.  I bought a few in the past in hopes that they would become the next big Asian org. but they are far from it, especially now. Rizin is the org. I was hoping to see.
