Well unfortunately this is all they can get right now and the most high profile opponents they can get. They know their in the twilight of their respective careers. All they can get is a paycheck.

Jens Pulver is also on this card. Fighting Eric Kelly (7-0). There were also talks of Shinya Aoki and Bibiano Fernandes fighting on the card as well.

This is starting to look like a pretty decent card. Though I'm not sure it's filled with just over the hill veterans or still legitimate title contenders. In the cases of Arlovski, Pulver and Sylvia it's over the hill.

Their careers are inexplicably intertwined. Both experienced highs and lows being ex-UFC champs, then jumped ship to Affliction. Both KOed by Fedor and much lesser opponents. Eventually fighting C grade fighters.

What happened...

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Would prefer seeing Arlovski vs. Rizzo II, but this will be alright I guess. Sylvia will probably win but i hope Arlovski KO's him. It's hard to be a fan of Arlovski when he get's KO'd all the time, must be a sad time.

For all we know Rizzo just might be the next big signee. This promotion has money and is bringing some big veterans to fight for them. Their unhindered control of the Asian market certainly helps.

I'm literally loading a few fights of the guys on the card, but they seem to have a lot of new fighters with decent records. Fights like Arlovski Vs Sylvia are literally in place to attract people like us to talk about it. By making us watch, two things will happen. They will gain in viewing figures will will rise their money, and we will get to see these young fighters and might get caught into following one's career if he impresses. We come for the vetrans who can't compete anymore, but we stay for the exciting prospects. A smart move by the One FC guys. I can see this company doing very well...before shutting down in 2-3 years

EDIT: Shit I didn't know they were using Pride rules. Shit just got more interesting.



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

Man I'm pumped for this card. ONE FC is quickly rising in my MMA Promotion rankings, I F*cking love having the Pride rules back.

Remember this is Pride rules plus elbows and a large circular cage. As long as they don't get involved with the Yakuza or Triads I think they'll be good. I doubt it'll ever compete with the UFC but it can certainly control the Asian market for sure.
