The co-main event saw lightweights Kotetsu Boku and Zorobabel Moreira go toe-to-toe for the promotion’s first-ever 155-pound title fight.
Boku’s fate at featherweight wasn’t very different. Despite rocking Zorobabel Moreira in the first round with a blistering right, he spent the vast majority of the fight on the defensive in virtually every phase of the game.
Moreira was largely the hunter through nearly three rounds, attacking with aggressive strikes (particularly effective leg kicks), controlling cage position and using his superior grappling to leave Boku in throes of near desperation on the mat.
By the late third round, however, lightning struck twice in a bottle for Boku who landed another bruising right hand immediately put Moreira on wobbly legs. Boku fired off several more punches - all of them connecting - while Moreira tried desperately to stay on his feet.
The end came from referee stoppage by Yuji Shimata at 1:02 of round 3. Boku becomes the first-ever One FC lightweight champion.
