ONE FC is poised to continue their conquering of the Asian market this morning (or tonight if you live overseas) with ONE FC: Pride of a Nation, a card boasting a slew of regional talent in addition to a number of notable competitors including Bibiano Fernandes, Phil Baroni, Jens Pulver, and Rolles Gracie, as well as a bout between former UFC heavyweight champs Tim Sylvia-Andrei Arlovski.
Arlovski and Sylvia have fought three times before and still never settled their personal score despite finishes from each. Meanwhile, Fernandes opted for ONE FC rather than a deal with the UFC while Pulver and Baroni are out to prove they can still fight without fear of being outclassed.
Things kick off at 8:30 AM EST and, thanks to a cup of strong coffee and a pure passion for Mixed Martial Arts, Five Ounces of Pain will be along for the ride from start to finish while delivering real time results.
