SINGAPORE, March 11 (Reuters) - ONE Fighting Championship, Asia's biggest mixed martial arts promotion, will return to the Philippines in May with local fighter Honorio Banario slated to defend his featherweight title against South Korean Bae Young-kwon.
A ONE FC official told Reuters on Monday that the event would take place at Manila's 20,000-seater Mall of Asia Arena on May 31. Bae was expected to sign off on the bout this week, the official added.
