ONE FC 14 Weigh-In Results: Davis’ opponent replaced, Osman/Lim bout cancelled

ONE FC 14 War of Nations weigh-ins Brock Larson vs. Suzuki Nabutatsu

3 changes made to ONE FC: War of Nations fight card after the weigh-ins but thankfully the main event is not one of them

Waqar Umar, who was scheduled to face Malaysia’s Peter Davis, had visa issues and couldn’t make it to the weigh-ins and there he’s now replaced by his brave cornerman Basher Ahmad, who volunteered to step up from Featherweight for this Lightweight bout against the home crowd’s favourite, “The Pistol”. Ahmad seems like a very tough fighter but Peter will have massive advantage in range, weight, home support and perhaps even experience.

The locals will be disappointed, however, to find out that the Ann Osman vs. Sherilyn Lim bout has been completely pulled out from the card due to Lim’s failure to make weight. Even more disappointing for Osman as she has been training hard, awaiting for this day. Guess her revenge on the Singaporean will have to wait. Hopefully she will get to do it in front of her own home crowd.

Grappling champ Andrew Leone, who missed his scheduled fight in ONE FC 10 due to injury, was 2 kg over the Flyweight limit of 56.7 kg but this fight with Shinichi Kojima, however, will still go on. This will now be a Catchweight bout instead.

Bout cancellations, fighters not making weight, twice to thrice fighter replacements – sadly these just keep happening to the ONE FC events at the very last minute and this is never a good thing. However, it’s still an extremely exciting fight card, perhaps the best yet. Welterweight champ Nobutatsu Suzuki defending his title against American Brock Larson, Pardon me for the mix-up. The main event features the inaugural title bout between Japan’s Suzuki Nobutatsu and America’s Brock Larson, Asian pride will be on the line. That’s not all, many more high profile fighters will featured: Kevin Belingon, Ariel Sexton, two former Bantamweight Shooto champs Adriano Moraes and Yasushiro Urushitani to face each other, former Lightweight champ Kotetsu Boku up against the entertaining Arnaud Lepont. It’s going to be real treat for the fans in Malaysia.
