The Fighters ARE READY – After showing off their skills in an open workout at the Resorts World Manila atrium, the 4 Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) combatants who will figure in ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) on Dec. 6 at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena announced that they are now ready for any surprises that will be dished out by their respective opponents.
The Team Lakay fighters will be facing dangerous opponents with excellent cage records headed by Japanese Koji Oishi, who will be defending his ONE FC Featherweight Champion belt against Filipino Honorio “The Rock” Banario in a much-awaited rematch.

The Filipino MMA Fighter Honorio Banario, who will headline the main event against Japanese tormentor Koji Oishi, believes they have covered all areas in a training and conditioning program made more rigid than previous ones.
