MANILA, Philippines – ONE Fighting Championship (ONE FC) will be returning to Manila this May at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena.

The fight card, which is slated on May 2, is titled ONE FC: Rise of Heroes.

The Asian-based promotion will later announce the roster of fighters who will compete in the Manila card.

The last time ONE FC staged a fight card in Manila was three months ago when Honorio Banario challenged Koji Oishi for the ONE FC featherweight title last December.

ONE FC also partnered with Mall of Asia to hold events in Manila, adding that it wants to hold MMA events at the 16,000-seater MOA Arena twice a year.
