In Just A Few Hours, Igorot Fighter Eric Kelly Will Be Entering The ONE FC Ring

A big mixed martial arts event is happening tonight at the TNU Sports Arena in Taipei, Taiwan. One Fighting Championship, the biggest mixed martial arts organization in Asia is staging their 18th fight card in the historic city. Headlining the 11-bout card is Eric "The Natural" Kelly of Baguio City and Rob "Ruthless" Lisita of New South Wales, Australia.

At stake for Kelly and Lisita is the opportunity to fight for the ONE FC featherweight belt which is currently held by the Japanese knockout artist Koji Oishi. Whoever wins the bout tonight will likely be facing Oishi for the championship belt in the next ONE FC event which is scheduled to be held on August 29, 2014 at the World Trade Centre in Dubai.

Oishi took the belt away from Honorio Banario (also a Cordillera-based fighter). Coincidentally, banario won the belt when he defeated Eric Kelly. Watch a breakdown of tonight's bout below.
