Honorio Banario will make his first ONE FC featherweight title defense against Bae Young Kwon at One FC 9 in what could be the main event. Bibiano Fernandes returns to the promotion, as will Eduard Folayang. They’re opponents haven’t been named.
Banario took a fourth round TKO over Eric Kelly in February to be the inaugural titleholder. Kwon holds a win over Banario, which came in round one by submission.
Fernandes now has five straight wins after securing his latest at DREAM 18. He holds a decision win to Gustavo Falciroli in his ONE FC debut.
Folayang is 1-1 for the promotion, with both fights going to the judges. He enters off a loss to Lowen Tynanes via first round TKO at URCC 22 in December.
ONE FC 9 is set for May 31 and comes from the Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippines. One FC held an August show in the Philippines. No official tagline has been added to the show at this time.
