The upcoming One FC lightweight title fight is going to be a real treat for Jiu-Jitsu lovers.

The current belt holder, Kotetsu “No Face” Boku, will have to contend with Jiu-Jitsu and judo black belt Shinya Aoki as a challenger. They will face off on April 5 at “One FC: Kings & Champions” in Singapore.

Aoki (32-6) has 22 assorted submission victories to his name. Only Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira comes close to as many submission wins at top-tier events with 21.

Dishing out gogoplatas, flying triangles and neck cranks, Aoki has forced opponents to tap out in several MMA promotions such as Dream, Bellator and Strikeforce. He enters the title fight off a win over Antonio Mckee at Dream 18.

Boku (20-7-2) beat Brazilian black belt Zorobabel Moreira by TKO to win the inaugural One FC lightweight title fight in his last fight.
