[VIDEO] The Highs and Lows from ‘One FC: Pride of a Nation’


Hmm…do we count Tim Sylvia’s weight as a high or a low?

If you didn’t get to catch One FC’s fifth event yesterday, you more than likely are under the impression that it was an event crushed by its completely preposterous stance on soccer kicks. While the soccer kick fiasco brought the sort-of anticipated fourth bout between Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski to new heights of freak show ridiculousness, the show gave fans plenty of reasons to cheer and a few things to jeer as well. With videos beginning to surface from yesterday’s bouts, and no other televised MMA to look forward to tonight, let’s take some time to re-watch some of the better fights.

Unfortunately, the best fight from yesterday’s card – a lightweight slugfest between Eduard Folayang and Felipe Enomoto – isn’t available as of now. We’ll keep you posted if a video surfaces, but if one doesn’t, you’ll only have to wait until October 6 to see Folayang battle Zorobabel Moreira for the promotion’s lightweight title. Videos from the rest of the card available after the jump.

Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver Both Book Matches They Will Probably Lose at OneFC: ‘Pride of a Nation’

(You mean to tell me that the guy lying face down in a pool of his own blood WAS ALIVE THE ENTIRE TIME?! No. F’ing. Way.) 

Not too long ago, it was announced that former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver had signed with Singapore-based upstart promotion OneFC, and were scheduled to compete on the August 31st scheduled ‘Pride of a Nation’ card against opponents that had yet to be named. Given the pair’s name power, not to mention their hard runs of luck as of late, it was assumed by most that they would likely be featured in a pair of squash matches to help build up their name (also, confidence) within the promotion. It now appears that we have severely underestimated the fellas at OneFC. Or overestimated, we’re not sure.

In either case, Arlovski has been booked to take on fellow UFC castaway and dangerous striker Soa Palelei, who is coming off a 12 second…we guess you’d call it beating, of Bob “Bitch Tits” Sapp at CFC 21 in May. And although just a few years ago, a guy like Palelei would never even be mentioned in the same breath as “The Pit Bull”, we may very likely see him listed as the favorite heading into this matchup as it stands today. Palelei packs a wallop of a punch and Arlvoski’s off switch is easier to find than a dwarf among midgets, so expect “The Hulk” to let his fists go early and often in this one and Arlovski to crumble violently to the mat shortly thereafter. Let’s just hope that Arlovski has finally undergone that Tango and Cash jaw replacement surgery he always wanted, or he is going to get royally FUBAR’d in this one.

Programming Alert: ONE Fighting Championship’s First Event Is Going Down Tomorrow Morning, So Don’t Sleep In Or You’ll Hate Yourself

VidProps: OneFCMMA/YouTube

Above is the commercial being aired in on ESPN Star Sports in about half a billion homes across Asia for ONE Fighting Championship. The new promotion is bursting out of Singapore, backed with some serious cash and helmed by an experienced promoter in Victor Cui. ONE is looking to fill the void in Asian MMA left after the loss of PRIDE, DREAM, and Sengoku, and thus far, they’ve been doing it right.

In case you missed it the first time we mentioned it, there’s a good bit of buzz surrounding the ONE FC rules set, which allows for soccer kicks, knees, and elbows. Unlike most Japanese MMA shows, however, the promotion will use a cage. “The rules are taking the best of Pride FC and the best of UFC,” Cui says.

ONE FC’s first show Champion vs Champion goes live tomorrow morning at 8AM ET, and you can get it free via a Sherdog stream… unless you live in Singapore. Then you’ll probably just go. Either way, you need to plan on being awake in about twenty four hours.

Come on inside for a couple more videos and the full card.
