A new bout has been added to the ONE FC 8 ‘Kings and Champions’ as Eddie Ng (5-1) faces Arnaud Lepont (9-2) in a lightweight matchup. The event is set to take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore on April. 5.
ONE FC officials announced the new bout today.
ONE FC 8 will feature a headline bout between lightweight champion Kotetsu Boku and challenger Shinya Aoki. The event will air on the Star Sports channel in Asia and can be viewed elsewhere via online PPV.
Eddie Ng is currently riding a three fight winning streak, most recently defeating Jian Kai Chee via first round submission at “ONE FC: War of the Lions” in March 2012. Prior to that he scored a first round KO victory over Yuan Chunbo at “ONE FC: Champion vs. Champion” in September 2011, and a first round submission win over Stephen Fenwick at a “Tyneside Fighting Championship” event in November 2010. Eddie now has the chance to extend his winning streak to four with a big win over Lepont.
Arnaud Lepont last fought at “ONE FC: Rise of Kings” in October 2012, where dropped a first round submission loss against Shinya Aoki. That loss snapped a six fight winning streak that Arnaud had been on, defeating notable fighters such as Jian Kai Chee, Krzysztof Hajtalowicz and Brian Choi during 2011/2012. Arnaud will no doubt look to bounce back into the winning column with a big performance against Eddie Ng on April. 5.
