Adriano Moraes vs. Asuka Mikami title fight headlines ONE FC 25

New, comment

ONE FC flyweight champion Adriano Moraes will put his title on the line for the first time in March.

Moraes, who won the belt with a submission over Geje Eustaquio in September, is set to defend the 125-pound championship against 25-year-old Japanese Asuka Mikami in the main event of ONE FC 25 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on March 13.

Moraes (12-1) has won three in a row under the ONE FC banner in 2014, all via submission. Prior to his second-round finish over Eustaquio to win the title, the Constrictor Team prospect tapped Kosuke Suzuki and Yasuhiro Urushitani.

Unbeaten in the last 14 fights, Mikami (12-2-2, 1 no-contest) makes his ONE FC debut in a championship clash with Moraes. "Riku Shibuya", who fights for the first time outside of Japan, scored three knockouts and a pair of submissions in his current undefeated streak.

ONE FC 25 takes place at the 9,000-seat Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur.
