Asia's largest mix martial arts promotion One Fighting Championship returns to Manila on April 24, with Welterweight Champion Ben Askren headlining the event. The undefeated welterweight will clash with fellow Bellator veteran Luis Santos in the upcoming event dubbed as 'Valor of Champions'.

Now into his second year with One FC, Ben Askren is determined to hold on to the coveted championship.
“2015 is going to be the year of Ben. I will defeat anybody they put in front of me and rule over the welterweight division,” Askren declared. He also said he is looking forward to going all over Asia and showing to more fight fans the kind of fighter that he is.
Although no other fights have been announced yet, I'm guessing Filipino and Fil-Am fighters like Eric Kelly, Kevin Belingon, Eduard Folayang, Brandon Vera and Ana Julaton will be included in the card, as well as the promotional debut for Mark Striegl. As always, the event will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
Stay tuned for more updates! :)
