ONE FC is Keeping Shinya Aoki Very Busy

| by

It appears there was some confusion over the status of Shinya Aoki and ONE Fighting Championships, the booming promotion out of Asia. After earlier reports had Aoki being taken off the August card and placed on the October one, it now appears he will fight at each event.

ONE FC 5: Pride of a Nation takes place later this month, and Aoki will be part of it. The card goes down August 31 and will be available via stream. An opponent for Aoki (30-6), however is still unknown.

In October, Aoki will face Arnaud Lepont at ONE FC 6: Rise of the Kings. That card is also expected to feature three title bouts.

Aoki recently had his seven-fight win streak snapped with a TKO defeat at the hands of Eddie Alvarez in Bellator. His last loss prior to that came via decision against Gilbert Melendez in Strikeforce.
