Following yesterday's monumental announcement of a 10-year media partnership with ESPN Star Sports, ONE FC unveiled several more interesting news items on a press conference in Singapore.

On the business side of things, the promotion made a huge announcement that government entities from Singapore will be backing them, with Cui saying that both the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) will be supporting ONE FC.

ONE FC has also announced two key bouts for their third show that is slated on March 31st. Headlining the card will be UFC vet and former Strikeforce champion, Renato 'Babalu' Sobral (36-10), taking on the very dangerous and explosive striker in Melvin Manhoef (24-9).

Also on a featured bout is Kevin Belingon (9-0), a URCC Champion who is one of the top prospects in the Asia, taking a huge step up in competition by facing the more experienced DEEP Bantamweight Champ, and 'Master of Leglocks', Masakazu Imanari (24-10-2).

Imanari on any card will likely get me to watch it!

That Babalu and Manhoef fight is sick too.

Let's hope its at 185 and that Babalu stays at that weight....he looks great against Robbie Lawler and his chin obviously can't handle LHW!! It could bring him back home to the UFC where he belongs......Maia, Herman etc....all good match ups for his return.

Im surprised how many peeps are counting out Manhoef. I can see him catching Babalu in the first with a flurry.
