ONE FC’s first card in Taiwan finalized, featuring 10 bouts

Staff writer

ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) has now confirmed all the fights for ONE FC: War of Dragons on Friday next week at the National Taiwan University Sports Center in Taipei, with 10 bouts.

Heavyweights Alain Ngalani and Chi Lewis Parry will meet again after their first bout ended in a no contest, while Singapore’s Nicholas Lee has also been added to the card as a replacement for Muhamad Haidar, who was due to take on Taiwan’s Sung Ming-yen.

Alain Ngalani has smashed his way through the top heavyweight fighters in both Muay Thai and kickboxing, winning numerous world titles and scoring countless knockouts. The indomitable African was forced to quit after being on the wrong end of a low blow by Chi Lewis Parry early in the opening round of their first encounter and he is desperate to become the first man to ever beat the Englishman.

Former basketball player Chi Lewis Parry’s goal is to become the first ever ONE FC heavyweight world champion and he is still unhappy about the way his first fight with Ngalani finished.

No opponent has ever made it past the second round against the Englishman.

Meanwhile, Nicholas Lee will become the youngest mixed martial artist to compete on a ONE FC card when he makes his debut at just 19 years of age. He has finished his opponents in both his previous victories, but he faces a tough task against his much more experienced opponent, who is sure to have the support of the Taiwanese fans.
