A new bout has been added to the ONE FC 6 card as Leandro Issa (10-2) faces Soo Chul Kim (6-4) for the promotions first-ever bantamweight championship. The event is set to take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore on Oct. 6.
ONE FC 6 will also feature a bout between Shinya Aoki and Arnaud Lepont, who will square off in a lightweight battle. The event is set to air LIVE on PPV in the U.S. and international fans can stream the event via the official ONE FC website.
Leandro Issa is currently riding a seven fight winning streak, most recently defeating Masakazu Imanari via unanimous decision at ONE FC 4 in June. Prior to that was his first encounter with Soo Chul Kim at ONE FC 1. The bout went the distance with Issa picking up a unanimous decision victory in September 2011. Bantamweight gold will be on the line in their rematch, so Leandro will no doubt look to put in another big performance against Kim.
Soo Chul Kim enters this fight on a two fight winning streak, most recently defeating Kevin Belingon via unanimous decision at ONE FC 5 in August. Prior to that he scored a fourth round TKO victory over Shoko Sato at Road FC 8 in June, and dropped a unanimous decision to Jae Hoon Moon at Road FC 7 in March. Kim now has the chance to avenge the loss from his first fight with Issa and pick up the bantamweight title in the process.
