CEO of ONE Fighting Championship™ Victor Cui stated, “MMA fans in Singapore are about to be blown away by this fight card! It is stacked with the most exciting fighters from start all the way to the main event. I can’t tell you how excited I am that Eddie Ng and Peter Davis will be facing each other on 18 October. This bout will mark a major milestone in the history of the Asian Lightweight division as both fighters have made it clear that nothing will stand in their way of reaching a title shot.”
“Eddie Ng is explosive and has amazing grappling skills while Peter Davis has an outstanding reach advantage and maximizes it with unorthodox striking. Both fighters have droves of fans from Singapore and across the Causeway, and a bout like this would certainly polarize the Indoor Stadium.” Cui added.
Hong Kong’s Eddie Ng will be making his fourth appearance in the ONE FC cage. He has finished all three of his opponents in ONE FC and will be looking to protect his unblemished ONE FC record when he meets Peter Davis. He combines explosive punching power with an underrated submission arsenal that emerged when he submitted Arnaud Lepont in his last ONE FC bout.
“I am excited to represent Hong Kong and step back into the ONE FC cage to face Peter Davis. He is a tough opponent with a good all round skill set. He has the ability to finish fights standing up and submit people on the ground. I look forward to the challenge on 18 October and I expect nothing less than an all-out war!” Ng proclaimed.
Peter Davis is a Wuji Chuan exponent and the face of mixed martial arts in Malaysia. Along with being a mixed martial arts veteran, he is also a prominent celebrity in showbiz with a long list of modeling and acting roles to his name. Davis has won five of his last six fights in impressive fashion and he will be looking to use his lanky frame and significant reach advantage to propel him to victory against Hong Kong’s Ng.
Davis told the media, “In the upcoming ONE FC fight, I'm going to be pulling out more tricks than “The Magician” can handle and put an end to his winning streak. He's won fights against a couple of my friends and it's time for a little revenge.”
Tatsuya Mizuno is a Japanese veteran who has fought all over the world. He holds notable victories over Trevor Prangley, Melvin Manhoef and Ilir Latifi. A 3rd degree Judo black belt, he has transitioned his skills to mixed martial arts by adding solid striking and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to his Judo trips and throws. He will look to utilize that against Rafael Silva and get his first win inside the ONE FC cage.
Rafael Silva is a Portuguese mixed martial arts veteran with more than 50 fights on his record. He has amassed an impressive seven-fight winning streak competing primarily in Europe. Having conquered the best in Europe, he now looks towards testing himself against the elite in Asia. With 21 of his 39 wins coming via submission, he will be looking to add another submission victory to his record against the gritty Mizuno.
ONE FC: TOTAL DOMINATION is headlined by the highly anticipated ONE FC Bantamweight Title unification bout between Bibiano Fernades and Soo Chul Kim. All the action takes place live on 18 October at the Singapore Indoor Stadium , live in Asia on STAR Sports and around the world via www.onefc.livesport.tv.
