The upstart ONE Fighting Championship has announced the full card for its inaugural show on Sept. 3 in Singapore, and some familiar names will be competing on the event to be held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

Former UFC fighters Phil Baroni and Yoshiyuki Yoshida will meet in a 170-pound bout, while TUF 5 cast member Andy Wang will meet Zorobabel Moreira in a 155-pound bout.

According to a press release, ONE FC "will feature a combination rule set of modified" PRIDE FC and the Unified MMA rules. The organization will also recognize the Unified MMA rules weight classes and is expected to "make additional major announcements soon."

Any card with baroni as the main event is not a very good one, although yoshida saves it a little bit. Baroni is an undercard fighter at best who wouldn't know cardio if it gave him a lapdance

Baroni is always exciting, but gasses after the first minute. It is very possible he wins, if he comes in great shape

Yoshida has been on the wrong end of a few nasty knockouts. It's very possible that he could go out during Baroni's first minute blitz.
