Eduard Folayang, ONE Lightweight World Champion, felt that it's a great honor for him that he'll be on the main event card on his first fight in Japan, "Even though for that night, it will be enemy territory for me. I am still very excited to showcase my skills in front of the Japanese fans. Of course, I am also completely focused and determined on keeping the ONE Lightweight World Championship around my waist. I know Shinya Aoki will be coming in very motivated to regain the title, but I have prepared well for this title defense. I will do everything in my power to remain as the champion. I have defeated him before, and I believe I can do it again."

Belingon will put his ONE Bantamweight World Championship on the line against Bibiano “The Flash” Fernandes of Brazil in a trilogy match.

Kevin Belingon, ONE Bantamweight World Champion, stated: “I am really happy to be part of the biggest ONE Championship card ever, and I am excited to be able to perform for the fans in Japan. This will be the third fight between me and Bibiano Fernandes, and I expect it to be as tough, if not tougher, than our last two meetings. I know Bibiano will be hungry to win back the ONE Bantamweight World Championship, but I am determined to keep the belt with me. If I can beat Bibiano for the second time, I believe it will show that I am a worthy and deserving champion.”

Furthermore, Kingad is booked to take on fellow former ONE World Title challenger Andrew Leone of the United States in a quarter-final bout of the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix.

Folayang, Belingon and Kingad are set to compete at the highly-anticipated ONE: A NEW ERA, which will take place at the iconic Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan set on 31st of March 2019.

Pacio is also slated to return to action as he will face newly-minted ONE Strawweight World Champion Yosuke “Tobizaru” Saruta of Japan in a rematch at ONE: ROOTS OF HONOR, set for 12 April at the Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.
