According to sources close to the event, Zorobabel Moreira will square off against Kotetsu Boku for the promotion’s inaugural 155-pound belt at One FC 6 “Rise of Kings,” which takes place at Singapore Outdoor Stadium in Singapore.

Rebney explains contract matching in wake of Tyson Nam ordeal
(mmajunkie.com)
Bellator chief Bjorn Rebney said his promotion was trying to give Tyson Nam an opportunity when it greenlighted a fight with bantamweight champ Eduardo Dantas – despite having released the fighter two months prior. Now that Nam has capitalized on that opportunity, Rebney said, Bellator wants its own opportunity to match other offers the fighter has received since his stunning KO of Dantas. "If you have an agreement with someone, and ultimately you give them a great opportunity … when that agreement is over, you have the right to match," - You gonna cry Bjorn? Do I see a little bit of moisture forming in the corner of your eye?

(mmajunkie.com)
Following the announcement of a headlining bout between Will Campuzano (10-4) and Jimmy Flick (5-0) for the organization's inaugural flyweight title, the fight card continues to take shape for Legacy Fighting Championship 16. The event takes place Dec. 14 at Allen Events Center in Allen, Texas, and the main card airs on AXS TV. In the co-headliner, bantamweights Matt Hobar (5-1) and Steven Peterson (7-2) meet in a rematch. Hobar won his first five pro fights, which included a pair of Shark Fights victories, before a loss (due to an arm injury) to Peterson at Legacy FC 13. He gets a shot at revenge when he again meets Peterson, a Bellator vet who's 2-0 under the LFC banner and 5-1 in his past six fights. Also on the card, WEC and UFC vet Antonio Banuelos (20-8), who meets Josh Sampo this coming weekend at Legacy 14, has already been slated for his second LFC fight. He meets fast-rising Ryan Benoit (5-1), who's already posted LFC wins over Cody Williams and Randy Villarreal, in a 130-pound catchweight fight.

Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren says he'll retire before he's mastered MMA
(mmajunkie.com)
Of all the current Bellator champions, welterweight Ben Askren might be the least perturbed about the long layoffs typical for the promotion's beltholders. They give him a chance to get better. "When I won a Bellator tournament, I was only a year and four months into my fighting career, maybe," Askren last week told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "My outlook was, OK, now I get all this time to actually get good at this." Askren (10-0 MMA, 7-0 BFC), who is expected in January to defend his title against Karl Amoussou (16-4-2 MMA, 4-1 BFC), isn't selling anybody on the notion that he's a complete fighter. And he won't even come close to being one by the time he retires from MMA...

MMA World Cup 2017
(aljazeera.com)
Having been branded as “human cock fighting” by former Whitehouse hopeful John McCain, mixed martial arts is set to join mainstream sports by having its very own world cup. The competition will happen in 2017 and will fittingly take place at the home of the gladiators in Rome. “Considering the history of Rome, and the Coliseum, it is the perfect environment for the first mixed martial arts world cup. It gives marquee values and it is the right tribute to history,” said World Cup Mixed Martial Arts (WCMMA) Executive Director, Edward Catucci... A watered down version of mma? What do you guys think?

Five Fighters Who Had Career Changing Wins at ONE FC: 'Pride of a Nation'
(mmamania.com)
Phil Baroni. The New York Badass put his money where his mouth is by blowing away Rodrigo Ribeiro in less than a minute and then celebrating in style (see above!) The win improves his overall record to 15-15 and he is 1-1 for ONE FC, 2-2 since getting cut from the UFC and 5-5 in his last 10 fights, which adds a certain sense of symmetry. Ribeiro was 9-8 going into the fight and is a third degree BJJ black belt and a veteran of the Brazilian scene. He is no pushover and went the full three rounds with Rustam Khabilov (who just signed with the UFC) in his last fight but Baroni blew him away in a first round frenzy. This was one of the most impressive performances of Baroni's career and was reminiscent of his famous UFC win over Dave Menne. He is back in the mix in the ONE FC welterweight division and next time he fights it is likely to be on the main card with Fabricio Monteiro and Gregor Gracie two potential opponents.

ONE FC eliminates 'open-attack' rule, adopts full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks
(mmajunkie.com)
ONE Fighting Championship has eliminated its "open-attack" rule for soccer kicks, officials today announced. The decision came a few days after the often-confusing rule resulted in an Andrei Arlovski vs. Tim Sylvia heavyweight contest being declared a no-contest this past weekend at ONE FC 5. Instead, soccer kicks are now legal at all times, and the referee no longer has to distinguish when they're an option. "Effective immediately, ONE FC has adopted full PRIDE rules for soccer kicks," the organization announced via Twitter. The organization's next event, "ONE FC 6: Rise of the Kings," will be the first to feature the rules change. The event takes place Oct. 6 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, and it's again expected to be available as an online pay-per-view.
