The final two title bouts are sure to make the most headlines because they feature 155-pound champion Shinya Aoki and 170-pound challenger Ben Askren with the Japanese fighter set for his toughest test in years against Kamal Shalorus and the American looking to become the first fighter to win titles in both Bellator and ONE FC. They are four of the biggest fights ONE FC has ever put on and here is my preview (for part one click here): Roger Huerta vs Christian Holley Roger Huerta (21-7-1-1) is winless in his last four outings.
